RECIPE SPOTLIGHT

We couldn’t forget the food. Each day we will share a recipe from a friend of RAGBRAI. Today we have two for you:

First up, a S’mores Shake from Blue Bunny. Maybe the only dessert tastier than a s’more straight from the campfire.

Next, Tender Tom’s Turkey Lemonade Shake-Up! Pairs great with a Turkey Leg.
