On the long trek up to Crystal Mountain a couple months ago my Mom mentioned that she was in the mood for a pastie. For those not from the North, it’s like a meat pie with little veggies inside that usually comes in beef and chicken. It’s very common for hunting season. I joked that they “shoot vegetarians up here” but she was on a mission and I know that if a woman in my family is on a mission get out of her way!
Let’s talk tacos! I had such a perfect afternoon at Mama Lu’s in Traverse City a few weeks ago. The weather was around 75 degrees and sunny making it perfect to stroll through downtown on my first and brief visit to the city. Eating outside, being comfortable, enjoying the sunshine… sounds like bliss! Not to mention how scrumptious those tacos were.
WARNING: There are a LOT of pictures of Michigan’s Fall colors in this post. The pictures were so gorgeous I couldn’t help but share them with you in a blog post! My family and I took a road trip up to Crystal Mountain (not to far from Traverse City) a few days early for a summit that we were working and we had such a fun family mini vacation celebrating my favorite season in the perfect Michigan fashion.
