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.*
* Anatomy of a Murder was filmed in and around Marquette in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, which was also the setting of the novel by Robert Travers-- pen name of the attorney, legendary fly fisherman, and Michigan Supreme Court Justice, John D. Voelker.
