My idea of heaven is a great big baked potato and someone to share it with. ~ Oprah Winfrey
It has been an amazing week here at Casa del KatKnits and while there were not any baked potatoes, much was shared; from the quaintness of Saugatuck to the grandeur of Lake Michigan to my favorite food spots and having my best friend experience them all with me truly did make this week heaven.
Yesterday we headed north to visit Grand Haven and the day was perfect. You can see some of my pictures on Flickr of the sights from the day.
I even managed to squeeze in some baking so I could send some cookies home with Steve.
Spending the day enjoying the sights of West Michigan yesterday with StevoFC and I am happy to say that the weather cooperated from sunrise to sunset. A great breeze at the lake made for some wonderful shots.
It is days like this that I really love living so close to so much amazing beauty and seeing it “fresh” through the eyes of a friend make it even more special.
Below are a handful of my photos of the day, enjoy.
The day started out ominously with lots of thunder, lightning, and rain.
Perhaps the perfect day to take advantage of StevoFC’s extraordinary cooking skills…a little slicing and dicing by yours truly and Steve worked his magic on the stove top. The end result was this amazingly delicious and authentic Hungarian Gulyas.
My Bodacious Leader posed some questions to her Bodacious-Wanna-Be’s this week so the focus today is all about summer.
Janey wants to know….
What do you do to get ready for summer? What says summer to you – music, food, clothes, activities, you name it…
Living in West Michigan where the Days of Summer are definitely numbered you will find most of the population here living each summery moment to its fullest. Moreover, with stats like this you can see why:
Almost half of Michigan is comprised of water and, except for Alaska, Michigan has more shoreline than any other state, fronting four of the Great Lakes: Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Erie. With 3,177 miles of Great Lakes shoreline it is easy to see why Michigan boasts a thriving recreational industry, and leads the nation with approximately one million registered pleasure boats.
However, what is a girl to do when she is not counted in the one million registered boaters?
Flour, yeast, water, salt
Combine simply creating
Crusty, fresh baked bread.
