This is just a short note extolling the virtues of Wisconsin fried cheese curds. This is a light and healthy appetizer packing all your daily aminos, fiber, and lots of Vitamen S (Vitamen good for your Soul). They are served only in limited quantities so that you can sample just one or two without feeling full or bloated. Cheese curds have been proven to reduce stress and hypertension and also have an accelerating effect on your metabolism. Surprisingly, considering that they are cooked without the addition of oil or fat, they also grease up the hands and make your eighth note lines swing harder. Oh and if you have complexion issues or frown lines on your forehead, just rub a cheese curd on the surrounding area and your skin will be as smooth and clear as the beautiful lake Monoma around which we just walked while eating the most giant small ice cream cones we've ever seen before... Wash it all down with a classic Old Fashioned at Madison's The Old Fashioned made with Brandy, not Bourbon. Yes sir, Madison, is a wonderful town and the Amigos are feeling fine. Next stop, DC!
