A Quiet Summer

How was everyone’s summer? Ours was more quiet than normal. But yet it went by fairly quickly! For the past six months, we ordered dinner out maybe 2 to 3 times a month. But we are avoiding restaurants even outdoors. Except for our one day trip when we went to the river and then enjoyed dinner at our favorite summer dining – Old Man River! We love their marinade chicken sandwich that is very thin topped with mayo, tomato, lettuce and pickles. So darn good!

We spent some time sitting by the river just enjoying the ducks and the beautiful summer day. We went on a Friday when the park was not too busy nor Old Man River!

Old Man River converted their parking lot into a seating area – as many local restaurants in order to meet NY requirements. I actually liked sitting out in the parking lot since it was roomy. It is definitely a tough year for restaurants and many businesses. Several of our local restaurants never opened up again and for sale signs are going up. It is sad to see. Luckily I have a job where we are still working from home. In the upcoming weeks I have more recipes to share that we have been enjoying over the summer and other views from our windows! Stay safe everyone! Happy Cooking and Baking!
