Weekend at the Cottage

9 Sep

Muskoka Lakes

My boyfriend and I spent the long weekend at a friends cottage in Muskoka Lakes.  Although we didn’t get the weather we had hoped for it was a great weekend. When the sun did decide to make an appearance our friends took us out on the boat. Some folks tried their hand at wakeboarding but the weather conditions made it very tough.


Some folks were old-pro’s!

The Pro - Wakeboarding in choppy conditions

I on the other-hand chickened out and decided to go for a little tour around the Lakes on the Jet Ski instead.

Our friends had close to twenty guests at the cottage and everyone arrived armed with lots of food and drink. We all brought a meal to cook, so as you can imagine it was non-stop eating all weekend!

Homemade Pizza

The kitchen was always in use once someone had finished serving brekkie, the next group were in to make a start on lunch. Some of my favorites meals…..eggs and pea-meal bacon, chocolate chip pancakes, homemade pizzas, the cold meat & cheese selection, spaghetti bolognese with home-made garlic bread.

But the highlight for me and my boyfriend was on the last night… We ate peaches & cream corn on the cobs that were cooked on the open fire and our first ever BBQ beer-Can chicken. I have to say it was so yummy!

We spent a lot of time down at the boat house, the deck opened up onto the lake & it also had a hot tub so needless to say it was a popular hang-out spot for all the guests!!

The last evening we lit up a fire in the fire pit in the the garden & we ate and drank into the wee hours of the morning!

It was a perfect way to spend the long weekend but now its back to reality….
