Timeless Classic: Fruit, Cheese and Wine

Timeless Classic:  Fruit, Cheese and Wine

A recent trip to our cabin, affectionately named Little House in the Rockies, reminded me about our Travel Day Dinner Plan Rule:  no cooking, smorgasbord all the way!  We’re pretty faithful about this, as noted in my post last year about it:  click here.  Road-weary bodies and hungry souls are quickly rejuvenated with this instant, no-fuss, luxurious al fresco summer dinner.

A few gourmet cheeses, smoked slices meats, fancy crackers, pesto, cherries, plums and wine in cool mountain air made our first night at Little House relaxing and special

Treating ourselves this way on the travel day is exactly the right way to start a trip. A quiet, peaceful composure brought on by the mountain air is reinforced by the sumptuous cheeses, salty meats and seasonal fruit.

After dinner, we enjoy the sunset.  Life is good.

A Real Find in Cajun Country: Suire’s Grocery and Restaurant

Looking for lunch on a recent trek home from New Orleans, we took the long way along the coast and found a treasure (and I do mean treasure) in the backroads of southern Louisiana. Suire’s Grocery and Restaurant has been serving delicious Cajun food to hungry travelers, locals and hunters since 1976. It was magic: the food, the ambience and especially the people. The Grill-Meister and I were enchanted.
