Priest Lake

We've gone camping with my uncle's family at Priest Lake for a couple of years.  This year, it worked out better for us to just go up for a day.  It's 2 1/2 hours both ways, but we managed to be there for around 7 hours.  My boys love the lake, so they spent most of their time in the water.  They jumped off the dock, floated on inflatables, and played trac-ball. 

My aunt prepared a wonderful dinner of quesadillas and soup.  She mixed up a filling of canned chicken, cheese, and black beans, and scooped it onto a flour tortilla.  Placed a second tortilla on top, and pan fried both sides in butter.  We weren't allowed to make a fire due to the burn ban, and it got pretty chilly after the sun went down.  The soup was from a dry mix, but after adding cheese, it was pretty good and very welcome for helping to help curb the chill.  My uncle made his 4-ingredient ice cream, and we had s'mores over a propane burner.  We contributed sliced strawberries and bananas for a twist on the traditional combo, something I'd been wanting to try ever since seeing the idea online.  I liked the strawberries better - tasted like a chocolate covered strawberry.  You can also skip the chocolate and just do the graham cracker, marshmallow and fruit.

Aww, thanks Katrina!! You're far too kind! I've been struggling recently with some flare ups, but I've felt pretty good most of the summer. I expect I'll be back to normal soon. :)
