Summer "officially" started this week with the celebration of Summer Solstice and here at the Lodge Chef Ron debuted his new summer menus highlighting the delicious fresh produce from the lodge gardens and orchards as well as wonderful local growers.  Browse our dining section (http://www.mthome.com/menus/) for sample summer dinner menus.  Lodging guests will enjoy new breakfast items such as our Huevos Rancheros eggs benedict, zucchini chocolate chip muffins and blueberry buttermilk cornmeal pancakes with whipped honey butter.  Evening appetizers may include new items like grilled crostini with local chèvre, rosemary, grilled peach and prosciutto or Argentinian chimmichurri steak crostini or watermelon, feta and arugula salad with balsamic reduction or perhaps burger sliders on pretzel buns with balsamic grilled onions and lodge made chipotle ketchup!  Mmmm.. loving summer!  Come on over and feast with us!
