Mini Road Trip!

Laurie and I had to go on a short trip today.
Our first stop was Peterson's Candies. It is a family owned candy shop that has been around for as long as we can remember.

They make all different kinds of homemade chocolates, hard candy, salt water taffy and much more. They are really popular at Easter time. They make all of the usual goodies like filled eggs, chocolate bunnies and all kinds of other yummy stuff.

The outside of the store is very cute and when you walk inside you could gain weight just by breathing. LOL

Then we went to drop off my deer for processing. We have been taking my deer to 'Deer Works' for years. Laurie used to work with the owner at Quality. They always do a great job. I usually get the normal cuts and then get Italian sausage made.

They have a pretty big place for processing. There are 2 walk in freezers, a room for skinning and a room where all of the meat cutting is done.

There were a few small racks hanging on the wall waiting for customer pick up. There were 15-20 skinned deer hanging in the freezer and quite a few more to be skinned. There were also a couple of huge racks waiting to go to the taxidermist. We took pictures of all of the rooms but didn't want to gross anybody out by posting them.
