Road trip out east

During the past week, I've had the opportunity to travel to Cooperstown, New York and enjoy some of the local eateries that are found in the mountains. While many of the establishments are following along with the rich baseball tradition that is in the area, we also visited a few that did not.

Our first stop was to an establishment that was called "Redneck Bar-B-Que" located on State Route 28. It offered both indoor and outdoor dining and had a nice variety on the menu. They make their own sauces and sell them to take home if you'd like.

My wife and I both ordered the pulled pork sandwich which came with fries and slaw. My son ordered the chicken breast sandwich with the "Dr. Pepper" Bar-B-Que sauce. We all enjoyed the meals although my son found the sauce a bit too spicy for his palette.

Bacon wrapped chicken fillets

Doesn't adding bacon to almost anything make it a little bit better? Last night we had some chicken fillets, wrapped in bacon and marinated in an Italian dressing. Put them out on the grill over a medium high heat for about 10 minutes. They were served with a tossed salad and cheesy garlic bread. A very nice meal without a lot of work.

Grilled Salmon

Here's a quick and simple way to fix salmon. I had a 1 pound salmon fillet. I have a spray bottle which contains infused olive oil. Lightly coating the salmon and then sprinkling the fillet with freshly ground black pepper.

I put the salmon into a grill basket and placed over a medium high heat on my gas grill. The grill basket is a great way to keep fish from breaking apart on the grill.

Spreading the green

Over the weekend, I had a chance to get into the garden a bit. I have some perennial plants such as hostas and day lillies that need splitting. I dug up a few of those along with some purple cone flowers and white spider wort and added them into a small garden I have started off the deck at our weekend campground estate.

We enjoy the time to get away and relax. With the newly added flowers, it will feel a little bit more like home.
