My parents dropped off their dog for the weekend as they are finally going to celebrate their 40th anniversary a couple of years late. My wonderful brothers and I got them a gift certificate for http://www.grandhotel.com/ They were happy to receive it but then never used it. Well, they seemed excited this morning for their weekend trip and I am excited for them. This is the only place in Michigan that is mentioned in the book “1000 places to see before you die” http://www.1000beforeyoudie.com/. The dinner that is served at the Grand is simply amazing. I had never dined in such opulence. Every time I took a sip of water, there was literally someone waiting to refill my glass – simply over the top service.
My mother picked me two big containers of raspberries last night! I am giddy about what I can make out of them. I am thinking some sort of dessert. I made a blueberry buckle coffee cake from the King Arthur flour website earlier this summer that turned out fabulous. I may try a few variations to it and substituting raspberries. We are still inundated with veggies so I may try making a grilled vegetable pizza tonight. It is Friday and it always seems to scream out for pizza. Mimi – pizza, pizza! (I can hear the voices calling) or perhaps my husbands thoughts are becoming audible.
