A Michigan Dinner



Of course, there are compensations for living in the Upper Great Lakes.

Tonight, we had whitefish on the grill and sweet corn; apple cake with whipped cream and a good cup of coffee for dessert. If one doesn't mind that the whitefish was from Canada, the sweet corn (probably) from Florida and the apples from Washington State, it was the perfect Michigan dinner.

Had Jimmy Stewart, Lee Remick and Otto Preminger stopped by after a long day on location, one might have thought our place was a shabby little roadhouse outside Marquette, circa 1959.*

Greg, you're making this native-Michigander-now-New-Yorker miss his old home state. I was just talking with my wife this weekend about great fish dinners we enjoyed in Michigan. I took her on a driving trip to the upper Lower Peninsula last summer. We even watched that good movie not long ago (for the first time) too!
