Laura Bonicelli of Solo by Bonicelli
will be Cooking with Italian Style at the Minneapolis Farmer's Market
. She'll be starting at 10:30 a.m.
and using fresh ingredients from the market. Recipes and samples (!!!) will be available for cheddar-wrapped chicken with swiss chard and strawberry snap pea salad with lemon basil vinaigrette.
Shake it Up
It's weirdly difficult to find foods that are red, white and blue. Try the Yankee Doodle shake
with strawberries, blueberries and vanilla ice cream at the Galaxy Drive In
(3712 Quebec Av S, Mpls, 952-933-1857).
Humidity? Rain? Who cares! Spend the weekend at the Ivy Spa Club
(201 S. 11th St., Mpls., 612-343-3131) and take advantage of the summer sale. Through Monday, get 20 percent off facials, massages and body treatments; 15 percent off nail treatments and 10 percent off waxing.
