It’s a Yooper Thing

What? Yooper?

Yooper is someone who lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It’s the best place in the world, but I’ll save all that for another post. This is about my dinner tonight – a pasty!

What? Pasty? Not pace-ty. Not pass-ty. Pass-tee! The most well known Yooper food. A typical pasty includes meat and potatoes, but since it’s Friday and I’m Catholic, we got veggie pasties!

So delicious and filling. Potatoes, carrots, rutabaga, celery, onions, cream of mushroom, cheddar cheese, and salt & pepper. YUM.

My cousin Laura called and wanted to run so sure I said. It was as bad as yesterday’s run. So. Windy. She is not very fast though, I was practically walking. I’m planning on a long run tomorrow!

After I thawed out I had some ice cream! It’s been awhile. I’ve missed it. It was a nice treat!

St. Patty’s Day Weekend! Special Plans?

I have nothing. That never happens!
