Even though our guest room at home in the suburbs is ready, we've decided that he would really enjoy the "Americana" of a weekend at the cottage.
I hope he gets some sleep on the plane because, so far, we have decided that he should have a chance to:
- swim in Lake Michigan
- go for a boat ride
- eat a nice fish dinner at The Bluebird in Leland
- watch the sun set
- have a beach fire
- eat cherry pie
In fact, I am making a simple coffee cake tomorrow studded with dried cherries to eat on Saturday morning. Nothing beats going out on the deck with a hunk of coffee cake and a enamelware mug of coffee. It's camp for grown ups!
Simply take 2 boxes of Pillsbury Cinnamon Swirl quick bread mix and follow the instructions on the box (note the "when using 2 boxes" instructions) to bake a Bundt-size coffeecake. When you add the cinnamon layer in the center, include a cup of dried cherries. It is easy and delicious!
