Teriyaki for Life

One of our most trea­sured lake tra­di­tions may sound a lit­tle unusu­al for lake life, but oh boy — do we talk about it all year long, count­ing down the months, weeks and days to this spe­cial meal. It is Teriya­ki Night. I love that Grilled Teriya­ki is a long-stand­ing fam­i­ly meal dur­ing our year­ly week at the lake. Let me tell you how this tra­di­tion start­ed. Con­tin­ue read­ing

Turkey & Cheese Melts ((It’s what’s for dinner))

Sounds sim­ple right? Turkey & Cheese melt­ed on some­thing. Oh but trust me, they are a plea­sure — both to eat & to make. Busy sum­mer nights are tricky for sit down fam­i­ly din­ners. If it isn’t because of game time at the ball field, or the fish­ing pond call­ing, then it’s the yard that needs to be de-jun­gled.

Let’s face it, there are a thou­sand things pulling our fam­i­lies away from the table. That lit­tle state­ment could eas­i­ly shove a soap­box under my  Con­tin­ue read­ing

Davy Crockett Stew

Do you know all about Davy Crock­ett and his stew mak­ing capa­bil­i­ties? You don’t?? Well, time to be informed:

Born on a moun­tain top in Ten­nessee
Green­est state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so he knew how to cook
Kilt him a b’ar ((and turned it into stew)) before he could read a book
Davy, Davy Crock­ett, cookin the wild fron­tier
Off through the woods he’s a-marchin’ along
Makin’ up stew an’ a-sin­gin’ a song
Stir­rin’ or’ a f’ar an’ feedn’ his foes
He car­ries him a pot where ere he goes
Davy, Davy Crock­ett, the stew makin’ buc­ca­neer

See — Davy Crock­ett makes stew. Amid fight­ing off the ene­my and the vicious wild ani­mal, he makes yum­my, hearty man-pleas­ing stew. At least that is the sto­ry I told my boys 5 or 6 years ago to Con­tin­ue read­ing

Taco Bowl Night! ((and the very best seasoning blend for taco meat))

Fri­day night. Those sim­ple words illic­it hap­py thoughts, free­dom from the sched­ules and respon­si­bil­i­ties of the week & a time to slow down and enjoy some of the things that have been rushed for too long. At least that’s what Fri­day Nights mean in our home! I can’t think of a bet­ter way to cel­e­brate all the things Fri­day night offers, than to have Taco Bowl Night!
