Ok, it's not really camping. I'll have a King-sized bed, fireplace, and 2 1/2 bathrooms (and mayyyyyybe a jacuzzi bathtub! Crossing my fingers).
We'll be in the mountains of Virginia with some old friends and some new ones, and our agenda looks like this: eat tons of food; sit out and enjoy Wilderness; drink bloody marys in the daytime, cocktails at night; eat some more; play Twister; more bloody marys; and hit up some Virginia wineries on the way home.
We may even go horseback riding--these are the horses outside the Lodge to the left.
So far our menu looks like this (with contributions from Mr. Luz and Liza Jane):
Spicy shrimp creole with an arugula/goat cheese/balsamic salad
Smoked Gouda & Camembert cheese for a snack
Blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup and whipped cream
Asian noodle salad with multi-colored bell peppers and scallions
Greek turkey burgers on pita with tzatziki sauce and lemon/oregano couscous risotto
Liza Jane's homemade banana bread and blueberry scones
It's gonna be A.W.E.S.O.M.E.!
