Just a quick dinner,
Wings (no Vortex up here), beautiful beets, yellow rice and mixed greens salad!
Ready to serve...
And a beverage, of course.
Spotty internet up here, more will doubtless follow at some point.
Chuck, I just toss them with salt and pepper and olive oil, roughly 45 minutes depending on size.
White salad turnips are incredible done the same way!
Here’s last nights quick dinner,
Pork bomb, little potatoes, and beans from Plath’s (best beans that I don’t make!), salad was the leftovers from last night.
Tonight will be chicken, cauliflower and sweet potatoes...I think.
Looks like a nice beach day today.
Monday night was a tight fit! I’m very happy my brother decided NOT to get rid of the 22 up here for an 18!
Chicken, cauliflower and stuffing.
And a beautiful slice of brilliant sliver sunlight from the sun peeking through a hole in the clouds!
It doesn’t show as the sliver stripe in the picture very well but, the contrast was stunning.
Today, whitefish at the Soo Locks for lunch!
Tonight might be pork wings but, I’m not sure yet.
Last night was a beef bomb, fried yellow rice cake, caramelized onions and, roasted carrots.
Turned out well enough but, next time more cheese, it all just melted together into a delicious but, not very cheesy treat.
Might do a major ribeye cook or maybe some smoked pork chops before we head home on Monday.
Not a fish guy Jeff? This whitefish was ethereal! Like eating a cloud!
No pics of the pork wings, we were all too hungry after a day of rock hunting with my wife and time in the Lake with grandson. Slept like a stone!
Today was laundry and having the day to ourselves, kids and grandkids went to Mackinaw Island today.
Might have dinner at “Biere de Mac” but, no decisions have been made, I’m getting a night off from grill work.
Thanks Darryl, I’m probably closer to you here than when I’m at home! Hammond Bay on Lake Huron the water was heavenly yesterday.
What is this night off from the grill thing you speak of? I get full time duty when we go away. Usually to far from food or to many beverages to drive. Either way it's my kind of vacation. Delegating all the breakfast cooks the MRS and helping a bit with clean up and drying dishes keeps me on full time grill duty, and I wouldn't change a thing. Hope Timothy has a few more tricks up his sleeve before I would guess Saturday is departure day.
The night off turned out to be nothing more than soup, after eating like a house afire for the last week, I needed a break!
Didn’t feel like an almost two hour drive to the foot of the Bridge and back for dinner. I think that might be lunch today.
We shall see.
Darryl, I was thinking the same thing, closer by boat, we are about three hours north of Flint, 45 minutes from the bridge from the cottage.
Departure day will be Monday, I hate the weekend crowd on the road! By Monday, they’ve cleared out more.
Af couple of feasts will still be coming. I am getting a bit of an itch for some grilled fish...
Cruised up to “Biere de Mac” to find that they are so understaffed they can’t open the kitchen. Food truck in the driveway. Had a beer anyway and, picked up a growler for later, “Genevieve de Detroit” delicious! And I’d been planning on the major steak feast so, a burger wasn’t my top priority for lunch even though they looked great. So, back to “The Keyhole” she had whitefish and I had chili(it’s just such good chili!) and onion rings, best in the world!
Heading back I decided to stop at a fish monger we have driven past probably dozens of times, walked in the pleasant fresh fish smell was inviting, not the ghastly old funky foul fish smell nor the least hint of Lysol! “Big Stone Bay fisheries”, they had some beautiful fresh (this mornings catch) whitefish and equally fine looking smoked! I got two fillets and a tail section, grilled the fillets with a butter, green onion, garlic, and tangerine zest treatment, no more than fifteen minutes and it was perfect! Grilled zucchini and garlic toast.
Sorry about not taking pictures, mosquitoes were ravenous! Could not stay still long enough!
Beef for Sunday!
Departure Eve beef feast!
The “Pommes Anna” got a touch dark but, tasty!
The salad is a zucchini pappardalle tomato thing that my grand daughter and I came up with,
Now I’m glad to be home in my own chair! Hotter than blazes, happy to have AC!
Time to get back to reality!
