Saturday Road Trip, Sunday Cooking!
Yesterday, we headed north, after the Friday road mob dragging trailers, boats, and what-all were all up there and off the highways! We had a nice breakfast of scrambled eggs and English muffins before heading out. I also packed us a lunch type snack- a beef, swiss, lettuce, onion, mayo, mustard wrap for my wife, and a Krakowska (Kraki), swiss, lettuce, mayo, horseradish, mustard wrap for me! Kraki, you ask? It's a Polish cold cut, kind of a highly spiced ham formed into round tubes and sliced. Reminds me of moist Pastrami if you made it from pork! Casino didn't pay big bucks, but fun anyway... We pulled off the road to eat our wraps, drink a pop, and look at the wondrous fresh water inland sea called Lake Michigan... The water was dead still Saturday, but this same lake can have 10-12 foot waves in a flash, if a front comes in! This lake measures 118 miles wide, and 307 miles long. Maximum depth 975 ft., avg. depth 279 ft. Not the biggest Great Lake, but that is alot of fresh water in one puddle!
Today, I am marinating pork tenderloin in an Asian flavor, planning to add a finishing sauce similar in flavor while it is on the charcoal grill! Corn on the cob, sauteed portobella mushroom pieces, and a devils food/white frosting cake is the menu du jour... Hope you're all having a great, long week-end!
