Salutations, children! This week was a bit different for me – I spent the last two days traveling to Columbus, Ohio for a CLE (Continuing Legal Education) seminar. While there, I was treated to something so delicious, it merited a very special edition of #FrozenFoodFridays. So tonight, I’m not giving you a recipe – I’m telling you about an entire location, and one that you should make every effort to visit if possible: Schmidt’s Sausage Haus and Restaurant.
My party and I stopped here after dinner for some dessert – and boy were we not disappointed. The coconut cream pie was delicious. The German chocolate cake ala mode was also quite good, and officially makes this conform with #FrozenFoodFridays, although I’d have preferred if the cake was warm rather than room temperature.
But the absolute masterpiece, and Schmidt’s claim to fame, is their cream puffs. Dear sweet baby jeebus, the cream puffs.
Let me put it to you like this – this place put me into such a food coma that within ten minutes of returning to my hotel room, I had intended to boot up my computer and spend the evening writing this entry LAST night – but instead completely passed out and slept soundly the entire night. IT’S THAT GOOD!
People, I know #FrozenFoodFridays is typically something you may be able to replicate in your own home. But some things are just too good to not experience in their original glory. Schmidt’s desserts are a perfect example of this. If you are ever, EVER remotely near the Columbus area, do yourself a favor and drop by! You’ll be more than glad you did. – EWE
