We are amongst the many people that are lucky enough to have a family cabin in the woods in northern Minnesota. We just had a nice vacation there and here is a brief synopsis of our time at 11th Crow Wing Lake.
We arrived around noon on a sunny summer day. The lake was beautiful and as peaceful as ever. Here’s our view from the deck:
And Lady of the Cakes will be so happy to see food in this post ;) We decided to cook our dinner in the camp fire the first night. Here’s one of the fire builders at work:

All the store in Walker had was crystallized ginger. It was just a tad too gingery for me so I’m not going to make it again. But it sure looks yummy doesn’t it? (if I do say so meself):
