Happy July!! I had the weekend off from the kitchen as our friends invited us to rest and relax at their cabin on Big Sauk Lake in Sauk Centre, MN. And relax I did! This was my view while I was reading -notice my toes 🙂
And speaking of reading, as you know I am in a book club and in 2 weeks we will be discussing this book. If I were you, I would run out and get it or download as soon as you can! I loved this book! I won’t give one thing away – but it is that good!
Another book that I finished at the cabin this weekend was The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriani Trigiani. It was the first of hers I have ever read and also greatly enjoyed this book… maybe because of my Italian heritage or living in MN or working at the Mayo Clinic… what a great story that made me smile, laugh and cry. You might have to put these 2 books on your summer read list!
We headed back from the cabin around noon today and since tomorrow our first born is celebrating her 26th birthday, we stopped for a little celebration. We ended up at a restaurant called Rojo at the West End in St. Louis Park. It had great Mexican food (and tasty beverages!)
Happy Birthday Kristina!
We enjoyed our little get-away this weekend!! It will be hard to get motivated and get back to work AND plan some meals…. I’ll try though 🙂
One more thing – Sue gave us this cute “goodie pail” filled with treats! I especially enjoyed the chocolate covered caramel with sea salt…
