Checking In

can’t imagine a theme that conjures better sensory details than “food.” I love food. If you asked me about my favorite hobbies, I’d be tempted to count “going out to eat.” It wasn’t until I married my husband Shea, a former chef, that my diet included much more than Pop-Tarts, Eggo waffles and SpaghettiOs. Thanks to his knowledge (and willingness

to cook), I’m happy to report the abovementioned items no longer exist in my pantry. We regularly enjoy entrees such as sausage potato kale soup, sweet potato Shepherd’s pie and Cherrywood-smoked jerk chicken.


This month’s focus on food brings you two stories from Laura Broullire: “Fire Plus Food” which shares how to spark up your outdoor dining with a DIY fire pit, and her “hidden gem” restaurant guide featuring a few Northeast Wisconsin destinations you can add to your culinary repertoire. We also have someone who values food for the soul: Janelle Fuhrmann of Thrivent Financial. I think you’ll enjoy learning more of her story in “Faith Meets Finances.” To close this letter, as writer and editor Ruth Reichl said: “Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.”
