Key Lime Pie – Your New Favorite Summer Dessert

Nope, this isn’t a breakfast recipe, but it does embody the the Inn and what it stands for more than we’d like to admit. We believe dessert is best shared with friends (as long as you get plenty), and they should leave you with sweet sugary dreams once it’s gone. Prep this pie the day before and when everyone’s gathered you’ll look like Harry Houdini with surprise dessert! 

This recipe comes from Sobo, a restaurant surrounded by beaches in Tofino, Canada. Feel free to close your eyes and picture yourself eating this on a beach in the sun. We promise, it’ll make it even better.

For those who enjoy a dazzling display of Christmas lights, you will want to be sure to get to Chippewa Falls this season.  The Christmas Village display is located in Irvine Park, on the north end of the downtown area.  Established in 1987, the Christmas Village has become a tradition for the citizens of Chippewa Falls and surrounding areas.  Preparation for the display begins in October and relies heavily on local volunteers to hang the lights and set up the various displays.  There is an amazing display of life size scenes from Victorian times, with references to local historical businesses and other organizations.  December 14, 2019 offers a great opportunity for folks to walk through the parks without any vehicles in the area from 5:00-6:30 pm. The display is open daily until 9:00pm, and on Christmas Eve, as a special treat, the display will be open until midnight!

Savory Turkey Breast

For years I had a monthly subscription to a Betty Crocker magazine.  Usually it contained about 20 recipes, most representing the upcoming season.  I found this recipe in that magazine and have loved it from the first time I ate it.  What I like even more about this recipe is how easy it is to prepare ahead of time, then warm up in the oven prior to serving.
