Welcome Home

20151204_103921Well, this is our new home, a quite little town on the Sacramento River. We have everything we need here restaurants, Ice Cream Parlor, country market with a great butcher shop!

We had our first welcome to the town by attending Wild Game Night at Tony’s Place, an old time Saloon and Restaurant. All you can eat wild game that was donated by the people of  the town. It was the best tasting and display of Wild Game we had ever had the       pleasure of eating.

20151204_104120The number of wild game dishes is too long to list, but I will do my best. Non-stop appetizers were circling the building throughout the evening: bison sausage, goose teriyaki, moose meatballs, cajun sturgeon, abalone cakes, salmon pate’, elk salami/cheese, fried abalone and fried calamari. “Our sampling” of the buffet dinner consisted of abalone chowder, elk/venison chili, goose/turkey gumbo, elk stew, another elk chili, duck tacos, venison enchiladas, antelope chili verde, venison/duck pizza, bison pizza, elk/chicken pizza, elk/moose stir fry, bison and elk shepherds pie and fresh cod (and much, much more…). I’m not sure how many volunteered in the kitchen, or in the preparation and service, but we were very impressed and an excellent dinner and good-time was experienced by all. Did I mention the price?  Everything was for the price of a drink!

This was a great introduction to Walnut Grove and what kind of people would be our neighbors. When we mentioned that we were new to the area, the people were full of helpful advice, like the best places to eat, good fishing spots and the Saloons with the Coldest Beer! (very important info)
