A Walk Around Lake of the Isles = Minneapolis Lakes & Summer in the Northland

This week I have read many recipes from the contributors to Fiesta Friday looking for some inspiration for the menu for this summers Pot Luck – Everybody Cooks.  There may be less people this year.  Sadly my dear friend Alan has moved away to Portland, Oregon. He is always a great addition to any get together because he is a story teller and all around fun person.

The recipes that are shared on Fiesta Friday are a source of ideas for cooking that are endless fun and a challenge.  Once the event happens, I’ll write up the menu and recipes.

Presently my head is swirling with recipes…

In the mean time, these photos I share with you of my walks around Lake of the Isles, in the heart of Minneapolis. It is one of four lakes next to each other in the city. I made a photo essay for fun. Here are just a few photos of what I found on my walks in June. Also enjoy a bonus Cherry Blossom Honey cocktail story below.

    Thank you for taking us on your beautiful walk and showing us the sites. The Canada goose family is so sweet – I usually just see them in the sky squawking like silly geese. If you are looking for pot luck recipes, you have certainly come to the right place. I am taking notes too for the entertaining that is ahead of me over the weekend and into next week. I look forward to seeing your recipes.
