4 Easy Summer Meals

Spent the weekend with friends at our family lakehouse, a beautiful haven outside of the city -- a space for laughter with friends, counting blessings, and many meals. When not floating & dreaming in the water we cooked fantastic late spring {early summer} meals: -----------------------------  Lakehouse Meals Dinner 1: Steaks (seasoned only with s+p), baked sweet potatoes with bacon & sour cream, spinach salad with blueberries & shaved parmesean. Breakfast 1: Scrambled farm fresh eggs with left over steak with salsa & homemade guacamole, strawberries. Dinner 2: San Antonio chile seasoned fajitas, sauteed carmelized corn off the cob, with green bell peppers and onions, + corn tortillas.   Breakfast 2:  Migas (scrambled eggs, fried corn tortillas, & lots of cheese) ------------------------- Lakehouse Loves ...sleep with the sound of lapping lake waves and cicadas. ...a full day of lakeside lounging and swimming, wine, boats, strawber
