Weekend(ish) Bites

It's been a little quiet over here, because Mr. H and I were spending 9 glorious days on Lake Ontario with my family.

It was a much needed break from "reality" and always good for the soul. It was full of fun in the sun, playtime in the water, and of course...good food.

This included meals both at my parents' house and out in the area. We kicked it off with some cowboy steaks over the backyard fire pit that I helped build many years ago.
The trip included a brief overnight for Mr. H and I at a nearby resort on the St. Lawrence River with stunning views and a balcony suite that provided us with a gorgeous backdrop for 4th of July fireworks.
We experienced fine-dining at its best when service, food quality, and setting all come together perfectly. Thank you, Chateau at Saint Lawrence Spirits!
We ended the extended week with smoked brisket from my brother and fresh-cut fries from Mr. H.
Back to reality this week, but I'll still be thinking of summer bonfires, sunsets, puppy cuddles, boat rides, and the amazing meals we had.
Hope you all had a happy holiday weekend (or week, in our case) as well!
