Because of Jury Duty, and then injured knee, summer hiking has been limited this past month. BUT, there has been a few days when we’ve taken backroads between farm fields, and through woods and small Michigan towns to reach an eatery.
The rides have been great. But the company is outstanding.
Back roads also give you other interesting human sites, like the house in the hills with three confederate flags in front. Or the run down trailers which were surrounded by high wire fences. Or a back road with a bridge out, with no detour instructions, only a sign reading “seek alternate route”.
We don’t eat out much at all, maybe six times a year, until this summer, that is. I tried to pick items from the menus which I would not prepare at home. I suppose the most interesting food item I had this summer was a French toasted cinnamon bun.
I could handle eating this about once every other year. But it was so, so delicious. So.
I actually prefer my own cooking, but this summer’s eatery adventures have been great, almost like being on a cruise.
Eat well. Get into the woods or other nature surroundings. Spend time with those you love.
One important note: I do most of the cooking/baking in our household because of evening work commitments for Jeff. It takes time to cook. But this I know, when he does cook, it is marvelous and oh, so tasty.
Ooooh, that cinnamon roll French toast looks dee-lish! I’m going to check with you for suggestions for dining next time we’re in your area. Your trip sounds exactly like what like to do. So many interesting “human sites” when one travels off the main highways.
Oh, it WAS, Janet. And I agree, the human elements are as interesting as the food elements.
