Back from the middle. That's right I had a little Midwest break. My husband did a great event with Michael Symon and friends at his restaurant Lola in Cleveland for the Food For Life event benefiting Share Our Strengths .We enjoyed the generous hospitality from the people of that fine city.
Shout out to my girl and fellow "chef's wife", Amelia. Checkout her blog Chef's Widow. Super smart, super funny and you get the real scoop on what life is like married to a chef!
Then we were off to Clarklake in Michigan. My husband's mom lives there and let me tell you lake living is FUN! Went to the Beach Bar and floated on the lake Pontoon style. Missing Raft-O- Rama this weekend. Sad.
Below is a small lists of food spots and shops to hit up if you make it to Cleveland, Clark Lake or Ann Arbor Michigan.
I am back people. No more big trips until next month.
