I couldn't imagine someone making fresh waffles for a complimentary breakfast, but I never thought of making your own waffles! I had never seen a machine that dispenses waffle batter. Once you get batter in a cup, you pour in the perfect portion into the waffle maker. It took a bit for two engineers to figure out how to turn the waffle maker but we ended up with nice fresh waffles. Great start to our day!
Our destination for the day was Chicago. We decided to spend an afternoon there and check out the Windy City. During our drive, we saw more wind turbines. We then entered the state of Wisconsin and Trapezista got distracted by the thought of cheese. When we stopped for lunch, we inquired where we could get good Wisconsin cheese and were pointed to the cheese chalet.
Junction V & I-90-94 (Exit 126)

After browsing the cheese stores, we picked the Artisan selection cheese board sampler ($5.95), consisting of Wisconsin-made blue cheese, gruyère and gouda. We each also bought some cheese to smuggle back into Canada. Shhhh! Our custom agent did not suspect a thing!
Many cheeses to choose from.
One thing we did learn from our sampler is that if you don't have many crackers, don't waste them with the gruyère and gouda, but save it for the blue cheese. We thorougly enjoyed our cheesy morning snack and were ready to finish our drive to Chicago!
