Summer Picnic by the lake

What summer means to me.

When you wake up on a Sunday, and it turns out beautiful, it poses the possibility of spending it picnicking. Nothing special, just good food, good music and a lazy afternoon. Just being close to the water on such a perfect day is a delight. Really doesn’t get better. Note, we had gluten free BLT for Mr. Truffle, what a treat. We splurged with Oscar Meyer extra thick cut, apple wood smoked bacon, a wonderful product. It cooked up perfectly in the oven, providing a thick meaty cut for the sandwiches. The sandwich was accompanied by icy cold Mountain Dew and topped off with tiramisu.

  3. YUM, now I really am hungry for breakfast. And, yes, I could drink Mountain Dew anytime! Plus, that bacon sounds delicious and I will be looking for it the next time I'm in town. Hope you'll stop by for a visit as I'm planning a give away in my next post. ♥♫
