If you guys make your way north, Brick's Neapolitan Pizza in Hudson, WI makes the best pizza I've ever had and it isn't close. I have to stop there every time I go to the Cities.

I may have to go and try that one of these weekends since I'm not too far away.

Anyone ever eat at Trattoria Stefano in Sheboygan? On the pricier side, but I thought it was damn good. They sen the wait staff for training in Italy, etc.

I don't get that way like ever anymore. Sister in law used to live over in the Menomonie area, but her husband got a job transfer. Looks like a good 'za, although I'll need to brush up on my Italian to order off the menu. :)

Yep, I actually live in Sheboygan so I've been there a few times. The prices are definitely up there but they serve pretty generous portions in my experience. It's pretty widely regarded as one of the best places to eat in Sheboygan.

Stefano actually owns 3 other places in Sheboygan within a square mile or two that are all really good as well. Il Ritrovo(fancy true Italian style pizza place), Field to Fork(combination café and grocery with local and organic meats and produce), and The Duke of Devon(English Pub style). He's slowly taking over downtown but Trattoria Stefano is by far his best restaurant. :)

At some point, I may have to grow up and not have cereal and Subway (Man, there chipotle chicken footlong of the month was amazing) for 90% of my meals. So I decided to see if any of you have go to recipes.

Typical younger guy who loves animals and wants to limit dishes/clean-up. The length of time doesn't bother me as much as work involved. If I can throw it in the oven for 45 minutes while only taking 5 to prepare, I'm good with that. My new go-to "make dinner for the lady" recipe is the roasted salmon and sweet potato cooked in a skillet. Was amazingly simple and delicious with only 1 dish to clean up.

Any suggestions to add to my arsenal?

Buy a slow cooker is my number one tip for you. It will be your best friend. You just dump everything in before you go to work and it's delicious and ready to eat when you get home. Check this out.

Recently Kirby Nelson recently left Capital Brewery to start a new brewery called Wisconsin Brewing Company and a brewer named Brain Destree took over at Capitol. I'm interested to see what Capitol will look like with a new brewer. Kirby has always been very stubborn and flat out refused to brew hoppy beers even after grudgingly accepting the success of the US Pale Ale. Other than their awesome bocks their lineup became stale and I would generally walk right by it without evening looking.

Destree was an assistant brewer at the Milwaukee Leinenkugel's brewing facility (not exactly an encouraging resume, but who knows) who was chosen as Capitol's new main brewer. I ran across one of their new bombers today called Jacked Maibock and decided to pick it up so I could give the new guy a tryout. While I generally hate the idea of bombers (expensive!) I have to admit that I will be picking this up again. There aren't many great Maibocks out there, but this is one is near the top of the class.

Maybe I'll have to start looking at Capitol again but at least I won't have to waste my time looking at Wisconsin Brewing Company's offerings. Kirby gonna Kirby.

Wisconsin Brewing is going to open producing more barrels per year than New Glarus and I'm guessing they will be very lager-centric and won't have many hoppy beers and will probably focus on dopplebocks again. I'm sure I'll walk right by them while picking up a four pack of O'so Lupulin Maximus, Central Waters Illumination or Tyranena Hop Whore.

I like Capitols dopplebocks, especially Autumnal Fire but lately they've been bland/boring with Wild Rice, Tettnang, Hop Cream and Manometer. Capital's new brewer came out with a draft-only pumpkin beer that was good and this years Eternal Flame is 90% Jacked Maibock and 10% last years batch. I'm pretty sure they said the next beer in bombers will be their first ever IPA. Speaking of bombers, I agree they are generally pretty spendy for what you get, but Laguntias, Bear Republic and a few others still are decent deals. Of course I type about spendy bombers will I'm enjoying close to a $3 HopSlam.

The Milwaukee Leinie's brewery is where they do all their Big Eddy brews -- it's a lot more specialty than the Brewery up in Chippewa Falls. They also do a lot of Honeyweiss, but, don't go knocking their beers until you've had the Russian Imperial this year. So good.

I picked up a case of Hopslam last week. Some things are worth the extra cash IMO. Also, I actually think the IPA is going to be a year-round offering (Gasps at Capitol).

All four of those beers you named that came out recently generally tasted exactly the same. It was like he was trying to be edgy without using barrels or hops and fell into a weird rice-centered rut. I know the new brewery will have the capacity to brew more than any other brewery in the state (Ale Asylum?) but i wonder if they will ever have the support to fill that kind of space. Capitol cruised by on name for years but I don't think the new incarnation will have the same luxury. Kirby always took a lot of pride in his classic German style lagers, but I haven't had a German style beer from Capitol that New Glarus didn't do better. Hometown Blonde, Two Women, Staghorn, and Dancing Man all greatly outperform their Capitol counterparts.

That's fair. I haven't had any of the Big Eddy series, but I've heard a few good things about it. They're just kind of hard to buy when they cost two dollars more than NG's 4 packs right next to them.

Second the slow cooker. Exactly like Illyasova said, just dump everything in when you leave and it's ready when you're back. Chili is great with a slow cooker, though you do have to brown the beef first if you want beef. Another thing i've done is stick a whole chicken in there, with some broth and maybe some marinade/bbqsauce, and when you get home you can just pull the meat off, stick it in a bun for a pulled chicken sandwich. Really moist and soft, you can add sauce too.

I'd also recommend learning to make some salads. If you want no-prep meat in there, you can get frozen chicken strips or canned tuna. You can keep stuff to upgrade the salad around, like dried figs or dried cranberries in those ziplocked bags they sell them in, or canned mandarin oranges. Some soft cheese like goat or feta in the fridge, they keep for a while. You can buy a dressing at the grocery store, but it's not too hard to make a simple dressing yourself. You can try out some olive oils and vinegars in some specialty shops; it's worth it if you get around to it, and it might be a fun thing to do with a girl, oil-vinegar tasting. The only thing you have to buy fresh is the greens and maybe fruit if you want fruit in there. Anyway, it's not too much work to be able to make a good salad--and just one big bowl to clean. And nice to make for a date.

One more suggestion while i'm on a roll, look for some sandwich recipes. A loaf of bread, deli meat, some produce like tomatoes or cucumbers or better yet avocado or apples, hummus, a jar of mayo, mustard, big bag of chips--they'll go a long way, more cost effective for sure than $5 footlongs every day. And though it's not a knock-your-socks-off dinner for a date, it's a nice-but-no-big-whoop lunch for a girl. Pair it with a salad and some soup, and that's a nice little lunch to offer.
