In Stockholm, WI it’s all about pie . . .
Continuing with the food trend, both Jan and I made our own trips to the Stockholm Pie Company. This was on the advice of my sister Mary. Damn good advice may I add.
Neither Jan or I went for a whole pie because at 18-inches, they are a bit much. But you can buy by the slice which we did.
My pie of choice was Apple Crisp and Jan’s was Triple Berry.
Microwaved and ala mode — get outta here.
Stockholm is pretty kitschy. Lots of quant, brightly-colored old buildings. Plenty of places to drop a few bucks (and then some).
However, there were also a lot of “Stop Sand Mining” signs all over the town.
I had no idea what sand mining was so I Googled it.
Digging a little deeper, I found that the sand that is mined is a special kind of sand (frac sand) used in fracking.
Because fracking has taken off, so has sand mining.
