Restaurant Review: MATCH Eatery and Public House

Dinner in Canada, on the water, how can you resist? MATCHEatery & Public House is one of our new favorite date locations. Located just across the blue water bridge, MATCH’s menu is jam packed with some amazing food. We’ve given dessert and poutine a try, now it’s time to talk about entrees.
Typically I won’t order a Caesar salad at a restaurant, one of my friends makes amazing homemade dressing and it’s hard for anyone else’s recipe to compare that is until now. The waitress said that their Caesar salad was like none we had ever tried before, so of course we had to order the Hail Caesar!

Hail Caesar! Features hearts of romaine, creamy Caesar dressing, roasted grape tomatoes, confit garlic and grana padano parmesan cheese, finished with a balsamic reduction and the king of croutons. Hands down this was the BEST Caesar salad I have EVER had. I highly recommend ordering it if you love Caesar salads!
Bacon Mac n’ Cheese Dog features a bacon wrapped Nathans dog with spicy catsup, topped with cheesy mac & cheese on a butter toasted bun. You guys, this was delicious!
Of course, when a restaurant has pizza you have to try it. We went with the So-Cal, because it sounded unique and if you’ve been following along for a while you know we like to step out of the box.
So-Cal Pizza features cheese sauce, spicy ground beef, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, fresh jalapenos, red onion, fresh grape tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, tortilla hay, sour cream and key lime. Definitely a delicious and unique flavor explosion, that you’ll want to try.
I am now ready to go back for another Hail Caesar!

By the way, the view is amazing!

Travel Diaries: Dunes Waterfront Resort

For most of us, when it comes to travel a clean place to stay is critical and one with a lake view is even better. During our recent trip to Silver Lake Sand Dunes located in Mears, Michigan we stayed the night at the Dunes Waterfront Resort in the heart of Mears. While we visited during the last weekend of the season we were still able to do some fun things around town, as well as hit the dunes – which you can view here. Despite the rainy weather the view from our hotel room was absolutely gorgeous. Don’t forget to check out the Sand Castle Restaurant across the street for a delicious meal.
Amenities include:
Private beach with dock
Indoor heated pool and hot tub
Sun deck with tables and chairs
Video game room
24-hour front desk assistance
Walking distance from Silver Lake activities
Coffee Maker in room
Lakeside rooms available

Summer of Eighteen

[sunsets on the water]
I am the girl that as soon as Labor Day weekend hits I pull out my UGG boots, leggings, dark nail polish and oversized sweaters to put myself in full fall mode. This year, not so much – you see I had one of the best summers that I have had in a really long time thanks to my amazing boyfriend. Despite the fact that school took up a lot of his summer availability we were still able to squeeze in plenty of wonderful moments together. I can’t thank him enough for all the moments we shared this past summer. Over the course of the last few months I have shared some of these moments with all of you, and thought with temperatures dipping low it presented the perfect opportunity to get reminiscent.

A, I cannot thank you enough for all the fun I had with you this summer. I will cherish the memories we created forever. I don’t think either of us is ready for the fall, however I cannot wait for all the fall memories we are about to create. P.S. I cannot believe it’s already been over a year since THIS date happened and changed everything - and is definitely a night I could never forget. xo
