Morels are really popular here in Eastern Iowa. I know several people who go looking for them. Never tried them, though, I don't care for mushrooms.

Yeah they are fairly popular in the CR area.
BTW nice to see another person from Iowa here at the Cafe ;-D

Yeah, morels are mushrooms that kind of remind me of pine cones. They only can be found for like a week after the first spring rain. They are like $50 a pund too. They grow in the field by my grandparent's field on their farm. We go and pick them and sell them to the supermarket in town.

We made like $1,200 last year off of them.


Must be a little more popular here. We get $400 a pound. And then the restaurants turn around and sell 3 at a time, sliced in half with a little butter, for $12!!! 8-o

Obviously I pick my own. They go good with fish. Mainly trout.

In the area where we pick them, there are a few groves of them. A few families do it near my grandparent's farm, so we sell them cheaper.

I could care less either way, $400 for two days work isn't half bad.

I should get this clarified... When everyone says "custard" do they mean custard or frozen custard because there is a difference.

I think I have.... But I'm not 100% sure... I mean a sausage is a sausage is a sausage....

PackerAttack84 wrote:Have any of you heard of a pop called "Sun Drop"? It's similar to Mountain Dew.


Ironically, I never had even heard of that until last weekend when I picked one up in a gas station outside Nashville, while on vacation...

PackerAttack84 wrote:Has anybody here been to the Wisconsin Dells?


I've never been anywhere near Wisconsin....

PackerAttack84 wrote:You all probably have a Dairy Queen somewhere near you, but are there any places that serve custard? Like you remember my thread about Culver's, they serve custard and it's way better then DQ. What do you think of it?


Of course I've heard of custard, but I'm not sure if I've ever had it before... I suppose it's possible, though....

I've never been big on milk, and it has probably been literally 20 years since I drank a glass.... I do put it on my cereal and in my coffee, though.... Course I haven't eaten a bowl of cereal in a decade or so, either.... LOL...

PackerAttack84 wrote:And this is a question for you to tell me, I have heard of Chick-fil-a, but what is it?


Now we're talking about something I am familiar with... I eat Chik-Fil-A at least once a week.... It's a chicken fast food restaurant.... No beef on the menu... Just various kinds of chicken sandwiches, nuggets, strips, etc.... Their sweet tea is awesome, too.... Upside is that, in Tallahassee, Thursday is buy one get one free night on their chicken sandwiches.... Downside is that the founders were highly religious people, so they're closed on Sundays... But, if you bring in your program from Church, they'll give you a nice little discount....

Alright, that's what I was thinking. I'm not a fan of regular custard; I'd rather have a bowl of pudding.

That's because you backwood redneck Packer fans don't pasteurize your milk up to the high standards of us FIBS! LOL!





(For those outside Illinois or Wisconsin, a FIB is a F*ckin' Illinois Bastard)
