It's November up here in Pure Michigan. Here's a sample of some of our Up North activities.
Cadillac's economy seems to be healthier. We enjoyed a great lunch at a new brewery in town, the Clam Lake Beer Company. I loved the new interior design. It even sported really cool bathrooms. The food was terrific. Maybe next time I'll get to report on the beer.
Since we won't be back up here until a few days before Christmas I've been forced to decorate for Christmas early this year. I'm not very motivated. I don't think I've ever decorated before Thanksgiving in the past. I have managed to work on two trees in the main living areas. The kids did a fabulous job on a tree in the basement. They were more into it than I was. Hopefully, I can play a little Mannheim Steamroller and finish decorating before we leave.
The highlight so far was when Sarah, my 16 year old, made hotteok (sweet Korean pancakes). She worked with a recipe from Maangchi.
She remained true to the recipe with the exception of substituting peanuts for walnuts.
Of course, we are waiting for November 15 when the air will be filled with sound of eager deer hunters sporting Blaze Orange.
