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.
