Brunch at the Lake

May 20th, 2011

The weather cleared yesterday for the most delightful day.  As I mentioned in my previous post, Jane of Blondies Journals and her husband are vacationing in Asheville this week.  Penny of  The Comforts of Home and I got together with her for lunch on Wednesday and all of us got together yesterday at Lake Lure for brunch.  The menu included items that I have posted before.

Here I am preparing the Mexican Benedicts.

You can find the recipe here.  We also had Potato, Tomato and Rosemary GratinTropical Fruit Salad and Apple Bread.

David served Mimosa’s and Bloody Marys.  Jane and Alan know our home town well because their cottage is on a lake a few miles from where David and I grew up.

The day was cool but pleasant.  Captain David loves to share the lake and it’s history with everyone.  Does anyone look bored yet?

This is the reason I enjoy blogging so much.  Without having my blog I never would have met Penny and Jane.  We had a wonderful day together.  Our husbands are pretty special too.

Thanks Penny for the pictures.  I didn’t get my camera out once.
