    Fitzgerald's Octagen House/Famous Freddy's

    I had never had Cod prepared in this fashion and yes, you may ask yourself . . . "Cod"?! "In Wisconsin"?!!!!!! (I am reminded of Baccala`). Yes and it was very good. Served with a decadent butter sauce. All you can eat, with cole slaw, potatoes, onions. For an extra dollar they also had bbq'd chicken which was also very tasty. They had a dessert table with home made apple pie. I was so stuffed after two plates I will have to sample the pie and other sweets on my next visit.

    On our way home we stopped at Famous Freddy's in Fox Lake. They offer a huge outdoor deck next to the marina, I sat and gazed as I sipped an ice water. Then it was time for Cory, Steve and I to head for the barn. We rode as a group until Lake-Cook Road, I waved and it was a quick 25 minute trip down the 355 and home.

    Thanks guys, I enjoyed.

    Oh! And I discovered Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy. A Weiss beer with a hint of lemon. For me it fit the evening perfectly.
    Drink Responsibly!

    Sat all day. Sun I have to be back home by 3pm. Family grad party. Take your pick. Weather may be a factor. As of now it looks good but I never believe them til the day comes.

    Of course WEZUL has to put a damper on things.

    Steam Power!

    http://www.threshingbee.org/

    This weekend.

    Anyone who really wants to know more about the roots of DeKalb County should visit the Sycamore Steam Show and Threshing Bee, held at the Taylor Marshall Farm, about 4 miles northeast of Sycamore on Plank Road.

    While the first show was held at John Allen's Corners in Hampshire, the club that hosts the event, the Northern Illinois Steam Power Club, formed in 1957 at Halverson's Implement Co. in DeKalb. It's first board of directors meeting was held at the Daily Chronicle's original home near the corner of First and Lincoln Highway.

    Fifty-two years later the show has continued to grow without forgetting its roots. One of its newest attractions is is a Steam Traction Engine built by the Illinois Thresher Company right in Sycamore.
