Lake Huron

Sunrise on Lake Huron

It’s not that I haven’t been cooking since our arrival at Lake Huron just over a week ago, it’s just hard to tear oneself away from the beautiful lake. We’ve had some great meals with friends and family and my waistline is paying the price. Internet service has also been sporadic even with the handy little 4G MiFi device. On one of our first nights at the cottage we enjoyed a dinner of London Broil, grilled potatoes, and salad with lettuce I harvested from the garden before I left. We had, literally, a houseful this weekend. We had homemade meatballs and marinara, (the meatballs served as lunch the next day as a meatball sandwich with melted provolone) chicken with creamy pesto sauce, (I had to make the pesto sauce in the smoothie maker which was the closest thing I had to a blender or food processor) and more fresh salad. We also grilled two boneless legs of lamb (see my Easter post for Alton Brown’s lamb recipe), scalloped potatoes, and caprese salad, and of course, grilled bread. Breakfast has included breakfast sandwiches with egg, swiss, avocado, and tomato. For the less healthy conscious, I served homemade buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy. As a farewell to our guests leaving this morning, I sent them off with “loaded” blueberry muffins. Now that the house has cleared out, I will focus on clearing out the leftovers and catching up on the blog. Currently 92 degrees, not a cloud in the sky, and the lake is breathtaking. Back to the beach!
