Ladies Getaway to Galena

 Today was Ladies Day,  3 of my friends and I packed up and headed to Galena, Illinois for shopping, eating and laughs. In Galena, there are shops with jewelry, antiques, bakeries, gelato, clothes and much more. Anything a girl could dream of. Ally and I are foodies so we frequented all of the food shops. Check out Sweet and Savory Food for more pics...thanks Ally!!

We had lunch at the Golden Hen Cafe. Every meal comes with soup, coleslaw and fries - talk about family style. We were stuffed for hours, but it didn't slow us down!

 I had the Golden Hen Gourmet Burger and it had peppers (red and green), mushrooms, and onions. It was absolutely delicious!!

Next we hit a Barbeque Sauce joint, it had hundreds of BBQ sauces. The image above is just a section of the Taste Test Bar. It had all homemade BBQ sauces that you could try before purchasing.

Above is our 'Vana White' showcasing the racks of Sauces. These are only two walls of the 7 racks in the store. This is not even half of the BBQ sauces they sell! You can't even imagine this shop!

For those who watch Oprah, you will know that a Moscow Mule is her favorite drink.
Moscow Mule Drink:

1 1/2 oz Jigger Vodka
Juice of 1/2 Lime
Ice Cubes
Cold Cock and Bull

We were hungry for lunch...:)

If there is a bakery around, I am there. I insist on trying any kind of sweet I can.

Homemade Canoli - we had this best service in this little shop!! Thank you Sweetheart Bakery
