We've been offline and out of touch these last few weeks, first up north at my in-laws cabin, enjoying splashing in the lake, blueberry picking, sleeping in a trailer, catching fish and frogs and breathing in the clear northern air. And then trying to recover and unpack. Which is less fun.
We take off again tomorrow, this time to my dad's little island in cottage country where we'll sleep in a yurt, roast marshmallows over a fire, splash in the lake and soak in the sun. We'll also enjoy some delicious food - fresh fruits and veggies from the farmers market, delicious steaks cooked on the grill, and the world's best butter tarts from a cafe not too far from the island. I just love coming together as a family, filling our bellies with delicious, healthful foods and chatting about life.
On that note, I leave you with a quote by Michael Pollan “The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture.”
Enjoy a healthy, delicious meal with family and friends this weekend!
