It’s amazing what a little shopping, girl time, and some different scenery can do to refresh a person! Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, my grandma and I trekked 4 hours south to Minneapolis for a middle-of-the-week getaway. We usually spring clean our closets and then go shop for more! We hit all the big Saver’s thrift stores and this time we got to do a lot outside due to the unusually warm spring weather. And the highlight of my trip—The General Mills Museum in downtown Minneapolis! If you’re ever in the area it’s a must-see. And for only $10, you get access to the whole thing! Here’s a little sneak peak….
Mill City Ruins—where the Mill weathered an explosion in 1991.
Looking down from the 8th floor observation deck.
Beautiful view of Minneapolis.
One of the exhibits is the Flour Tower which is an 8 story interactive elevator ride that shows you what a day was like working in a flour mill.
Then we went to the General Mills exhibit which included history on all their brands and the Baking Lab—right up my alley!
General Mill’s top 4 produced flours.
Maybe I will work here one day?
Gotta love “The First Lady of Food”
And the best for last….BISQUICK!
So overall, the museum is a definite must see if your a General Mill’s fan like me!
I also needed to make a much needed Trader Joe’s stop, since the closest one is 4 hours from me!
We ate at Old Country Buffett..
I love their steamed fish and roasted potatoes with onions.
Dessert was ColdStone Creamery of course!
I got a new creation which is now my favorite—half sweet cream and half berry tart n tangy with blueberries and cinnamon added in—sounds crazy I know, but I promise it’s delish!
Have a super spring Sunday!
