Sunshine and a nice country drive to Swiss Missouri, was awesome!

Where are we today ?
           Another great night's sleep we had, cold yes but we toasty warm inside. This morning's walkabout was refreshing and clear blue skies. Some ground frost and a bit of fog but really enjoyed it.
love the deer and bear footprints thats they
put in the cement sidewalks too.
nice fall colors with the morning sun too
       Then about 11 am we took Rob and Pat for a tour about this huge resort. They have Teepee camping, and tent type camping too as well as many rental trailers and cabins.
teepees here
tents here
nice beaches too!
         Then a nice country drive about 10 miles to Swiss MO and Swiss Meat and sausage Co. It looked like an interesting place to go after checking their website and close by as well. A tiny village with really just the store and church here.
         Well this place is a destination all in its own.
         They have awards lining their walls from all over. 51 different types of sausage alone! And we got to taste a whole bunch of their priducts right here. Demonstrations and information.
Awards line the walls
tasty samples
so many choices 
         Now after looking at all they had and all the free samples we thought maybe have a Braut on a bun, very reasonable prices here too! 

Suzie had baked potato and cheese Brautwurst 
hot german potato salad too
me jalapeno and onion Braut with
hot german potato salad
neat preserves, Apple Butter,
Sweet potato butter, etc...
        They also had a special on the sausage so we picked up a bunch of products and made our way back to camp enjoying this wonderful outing on a beautiful sunny day.
Deer hunting season here right now,
they do custom butchering here too,
love the staffs t shirts.
       Now back at the resort and checking out a few more of their huge buildings they have here with so much to do.
on the indoor mini golf course
          Now a wonderful sunny afternoon we had time to enjoy our books for a while then an early social hour with our friends. But with the time change it starts to get cooler shortly after 4 pm as the sun begins to set. So inside and whip up a tasty supper. Some specialty Fettucine we picked up in Texas last winter and a couple fully cooked and smoked BBQ'D pork steak we picked up this afternoon at Swiss. Steamed broccoli and we has a very tasty supper.
sure hit the spot and a few leftovers as usual
         That was another fun day we had here in Missouri and would like to thank ya'll for stopping on by too.
Even Rob and Pats' Lady girl says thanks too!

  4. It's great to have folks around to share a meal or two with. It sure beats eating by yourself too! Love the fall colors.

  8. Alright - I'm sorry but your pasta in the dinner picture looks like worms to me. LOL I would love that sausage place - what a neat store.

    1. May look like worms but a Cabernet Sauvignon is a red wine so the pasta looks that way and tastes awesome, just with a little olive oil and parmesan cheese. And their sausage is soo good too.

  10. I'm sure I would have come out of there with a huge bag of stuff. Two dollar steaks, eh? That's a deal that's hard to pass up. They looked good.

    1. The pork steaks were very tasty and could not turn down for two bucks. We have limited fridge and freezer space but did walk away with 5- one pound pacakges of sausage.
