Northern Michigan: Yummies

Our weekend getaway would not have been the same without all the greats eats we had. My friend Johnny's mom made some great food, and even her simple toast and hard-boiled eggs tasted better than usual. I guess nothing beats momma's cooking, even if it is someone else's mom.


Johnny treated us to sandwiches from The Cheese Shop, a local favorite for delicious sandwiches on their popular pretzel bread.

I had the "Manitou," the best vegetarian sandwich. Ever.


We came back to another delicious home-cooked meal, abundant with fresh local vegetables and locally caught fish.DSC_1574

It was also Johnny's birthday, and no birthday is complete without cake. Momma Johnny put pecans and Leelanau County cherries in it, making the cake very fitting for our up-north trip.
