Greetings y’all!! The last few weeks have been a blast. Between some great eating, a Blizzard and warmer weather we have had a great time.
The Blizzard of 2019! This fun weather event found Dianne working 38 hours straight at the hospital and me at home taking care of the hounds. And the snow, lots of snow, blowing drifting snow. Took me a day to get the dogs to go outside to use the bathroom. The winds were ferocious and add the snow equals unhappy doggies.
We had a few eateries recommended to us, so we took a couple Saturdays and tried them out. The Alpine Inn in Hill City, SD was awesome. They have a limited dinner menu. This allows them to perfect the bacon wrapped steak. Add the baked potato and salad and you have a phenomenal meal. And the deserts are huge!! All this for less than 40 bucks. We highly recommend this restaurant.
Another Saturday found us going further up into the Black Hills to Custer, SD. There you will find the Black Hills Burger and Bun Company. This little establishment turns out some mouth watering burgers. We tried the Fried Pickles for an appetizer, fried pickles seem to be big here. They serve them with ranch sauce. They were AWESOME!! The burger selection is filled with selections like The Hot Granny, The Texan and The Black Hills Blues. They also have buffalo burgers you can substitute for the ground beef. The Granny’s Baked Beans were a great side to my Texan burger. Dianne enjoyed the sweet potato fries with her burger. It was snowing in Custer and made for a beautiful scene.
We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with the usual fare of corned beef and cabbage. Dianne, once again, nailed it.
We extended 8 more weeks here. We will be leaving around May 18. Hopefully we will know, in a couple weeks, where we are headed to next. It rained last night. First rain we have seen in months. Temperatures have been warmer as well. That is a huge help to the propane bill. The kiddos are all doing well. Overall, things are going well.
Anyway, until next time, safe travels…..
