{Lakehouse -- menu & loves}

Spent the weekend with friends at our family lakehouse, a beautiful haven outside of the city -- a space for laughter with friends, counting blessings, and many meals. When not floating & dreaming in the water we cooked fantastic late spring {early summer} meals:
----------------------------- 
Lakehouse Meals
Dinner 1: Steaks (seasoned only with s+p), baked sweet potatoes with bacon & sour cream, spinach salad with blueberries & shaved parmesean.

Breakfast 1: Scrambled farm fresh eggs with left over steak with salsa & homemade guacamole, strawberries.

Dinner 2: San Antonio chile seasoned fajitas, sauteed carmelized corn off the cob, with green bell peppers and onions, + corn tortillas.
 
Breakfast 2:  Migas (scrambled eggs, fried corn tortillas, & lots of cheese)
-------------------------
Lakehouse Loves
...sleep with the sound of lapping lake waves and cicadas.
...a full day of lakeside lounging and swimming, wine, boats, strawberry popsicles, strawberries.
... a beautiful morning rain.
...writing songs alone on the terrace while watching rain drops on the water.
...candles & wine. 
...cooking while looking at such a stunning view.
