Truly, the list is too long for one post. I will say that our personal favorite for burgers since childhood has been Clyde’s in the Soo and St. Ignace. Our favorite pasties are from Jean Kay’s in Marquette, although (also in Marquette) Vierling’s white fish luncheon is regal, and the Casa Capri has pretty much divine (or should I say heart-stopping?) pastas (my fav is “lasagna on a cloud”) and garlic bread fried in butter. However, on our roots tour of da Yoop last summer, we had two wee ones along who preferred the hit-and-run method of ingestion (Where did Amé go?), so we hit a lot of grocery stores and ran right out to the camper to eat much of the time. (Where did Amé go??) Still, we did corral the girls a few times, and they were particularly cheerful about Pooh-bearish Elevenses when they included …shall we say… a smackeral of something sweet from a bakery. 🙂 Speaking of bakeries, our favorites are Babycakes in Marquette and Mackinaw Bakery and Tea Company in Mackinaw City. Although all of our restaurant experiences were memorable and fun, one of my favorites this time was our dinner at Tahquamenon Falls’ “Camp 33,” where every last one of us thought our food was exceptionally good. Of course, it took a while to prepare everything, and so there was a lot of “rock, paper, scissors” going on (and other games) to keep the girls occupied, but once the food arrived, both the girls chowed down like there was no tomorrow! On course, Daddy’s food tasted the very best, which makes sense,
since we all know that Father Knows Best…right? I think our heavenly Father knows bests too. He not only knows where to go for great food, He knows just what we need all the time and promises to walk with us throughout our lives, if we’ll just hang on! How about it? Shall we let God drive and trust him to provide great food
…and everything else we need?
“Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”

“There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god. I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt:
open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it” (Psalm 81:9-10).
