Yeah, it's pretty special. We're on a lake near Yellowstone -- moose country.
Wow! Jealous...that is beautiful. Well for my wife and I, we settled in for a long day of motorsports, "The Greatest Day in Racing". The Monaco Grand Prix formula 1 race started us out this morning (we watched on DVR - too early for us to get up!). For that event, I made King Crab Eggs Benedict with hollandaise (is that redundant?) and mimosas, with some fresh roasted coffee. Moving on through the day, we then watched the Indy 500. For that event, it was burgers done SousVide with Cabot creamery clothbound cheddar, and Finch's "Threadless" IPA to wash that down. Ah.....another great weekend.
