This past weekend my extended family spent time together at our favorite gathering place, Bear Lake. The blue water always makes me feel younger than I am and reminds me of how much I love my family. I’ve been going there since the day I was born, my ancestors helped settle the area in the 1860’s. What about the color of this lake?
What family reunion doesn’t include food? We spent a wild and windy day on the North Shore trying to boat and jet skiing on Friday afternoon where we had lunch out of coolers. I brought a sandwich filling that turned out to be quite delicious and a perfect travel meal. The idea began from a cookbook loaned to me from a dear friend, Bonnie. The original recipe called for layering the ingredients like a regular sandwich, I decided for ease on the beach to make it into a filling. The basil mayonnaise that I used came from The Foster’s Market Cookbook as well. So far all the recipes I’ve tried from this book have been excellent, I may have to get my own copy.
We ended up eating the filling in some creative ways. As sandwiches, lettuce wraps and just as salads! If you do eat it on a day of high wind on a beach, remember to hold on the top of your sandwich it may blow away . . .
What is your favorite thing to eat at the beach?
