Fresh Raspberries

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.
