Yesterday was world water day. We can be thankful here in Michigan that we have an abundance of water. Forty of Michigan's 83 counties touch at least one of the Great Lakes and we have over 11,000 inland lakes. Let's make sure we don't take our abundance for granted!

Toast N' Jams

Last weekend we were visiting my parents in Muskegon. They took us out to breakfast at the cutest little restaurant, Toast N' Jams. Unfortunately, I got there without my camera. :( It's not a huge place, but it's full of people and energy! It's got a cool retro feel, complete with a Route 66 mural. My husband and I had omelettes, which were both delish! My mom had stuffed hashbrowns and my dad had a belgian waffle with pecans. Yum! My son, well he had cocoa krispies...

It gets busy, so get there before or after the rush to avoid a wait. They're also open for lunch.

I've already decided that the next time we go there for breakfast, I'm trying the strawberry cheesecake pancakes!

OK, well, apparently I went through a time warp and lost a week! Sorry about that! I promise I'll be back next week with new posts!

The Cherry Hut has been serving hunks of homemade cherry pie since 1922, when James and Dorothy Kraker opened a roadside pie stand as an outlet for cherries from their orchard. Today, the hut in Beulah (pop. 363) is a full-blown restaurant famous for its cherry pie.

**I've had the pie, and it is delicious!!"
