Since December 2013, Jim and Terry Frilstad have been busy cleaning, buying equipment, and making half of the building they share with Watkins Liquor Warehouse their own.
The Kimball couple ran Swan’s Café in Kimball for two years, from 1998-2000. They’ve been looking for a similar opportunity since.
Both have restauranteurship in their blood. Jim started cooking at age 13, all through college. Terry worked for her brother Billy “Bones” from 1976-1995. Her cooking has always been something special; just ask her kids.
When Les and Tina Loff purchased the building (formerly MT Plates, and before that Family Inn) on Highway 55, right across from Mies Outland, they only needed half the building for the liquor store; that half used to be the bar at MT Plates. The restaurant part of the building, they thought, should be used too.
Frilly’s Place may open its doors to the public around March 1. It’s a bit early to know what their specialties will be yet, but they’ll offer Terry’s famous chili every day, and will make everything they can from scratch. They will bake fresh bread daily, and sell bread too. Broasted chicken (with Billy Bones’ special recipe), fresh-made burgers, fresh salad bar (with homemade salads) for lunch and dinner, and homemade desserts will be available daily.
A Sunday brunch buffet will have caramel rolls, French toast with caramel sauce (“you’ll never have it with syrup again,” Jim says), in addition to the usual brunch items.
They’re putting in an ice cream freezer, too, to sell it by the scoop.
“We want it to feel like people are coming over to our house to eat,” said Terry. Homemade, home-style food, in a homey atmosphere.
People who want to teach but don’t have the full credentials will have an opportunity to become certified as short-call substitute teachers under the Minnesota Limited Short Call Substitute program. A 4-year bachelor degree is required to qualify.
Resource Training & Solutions in St. Cloud has announced that it has coordinated a two-day program on Feb. 24-25, 2014, to prepare individuals to apply to become short-call substitute teachers.
