One of the highlights of any trip North is always a Saturday morning on Sunday morning spent at Floyd's in Victoria, Minnesota.
We go there with one thing and one thing only in mind -- their great Bloody Mary with a plethora of garnishes and known on those two days as the
Weekender!Pickles and shrimps and cheeses and olives . . . and of course, celery are the "garnish". I really call it an "Appetizer" . . . . and it comes with a beer chaser!
There is no better way to start the weekend that with a Weekender at Floyd's.
And so, we brought home to Linderhof, the idea and often, when we serve martinis as our predinner drink, we serve them "Floyd's Style" -- with a skewer of garnishes.
It's both the drink and the appetizer and Husband Jim takes great care in making these skewers. Drinks are always his responsibility -- and that includes the garnishes for the drinks.
It's great fun, these appetizer skewers . . . whose roots are not on the prairie of Kansas but on the prairie of Minnesota.

I love this idea!! I will be using this in the near future :) Happy Foodie Friday.
Wow! That is some drink and snack! Happy FF!
Fabulous idea Martha. Love that it is the drink and app also. Great Foodie Friday post.
These are too cute. I have company this weekend and think I will borrow your idea! Thanks for sharing.
Can't miss with this!! Great post..
This is a fantastic idea and I'd love to try it!! Floyd's place sounds pretty hoppin' too! Beer chasers?? ;-)
Heaven on earth.I am having guests tomorrow and this will be a hit! I am making this I will go as far as name it in honor of you!! I am excited now about having to shop(the rain is coming)
great addition to FF
The official drink name is the Linderhoff down here in Lutz!
Yet it will be on the "weekend"
What a great idea! I love both versions, Floyd's and your husbands. Think I'll do a version for margaritas on the lanai, I LOVE this!
I love the idea of drinks and appetizers all in one!
What a fabulous idea and they look really nice. Have a wonderful day. Beer chasers? Just curious :-).
OK, Martha... you have outdone yourself. A martini that comes with its own snacks? FANTASTIC. We are doing this the next time my martini-loving siblings come to the house. Fantastic...and I think yours looks better than Floyds.
You're killing me! Why can't I just crawl through my screen and join you? A cocktail with a snack - great idea and it look pretty too!
You're my kind of gal, Martha :) What a great combination!
