When in Alaska…

…Gotta have them WILD Alaskan salmon.

When I was vacationing in Alaska last summer, I took advantage of eating wild salmon as much as I could. Yum! Nothing like wild fish in a variety of dishes.

Wild salmon and wild rice pastry from The Roadhouse in Talkeetna, AK. This was pretty good. I’m a huge fan of wild rice. I had to try it!

I loved this small town of Talkeetna. There’s a sense of community there, which I cherish.

Honey lime salmon salad from the Grizzly Bar & Grill at the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge. I also ordered a chicken noodle soup, which was homemade.

I loved this lodge. The scenery was beautiful. The featured image above is a few of a creek next to the lodge. It really felt cozy, like I was camping in the wilderness. The air was crisp and brisk.

I also enjoyed this lodge, too. We got to see the Northern Lights one night, too. It was beautiful. Nature is truly amazing.

Go to Alaska if you want to experience some spectacular nature. You will have a greater appreciation for it. I know I did.

Today calls for π!

It’s 03/14- Happy Pi Day!

Pi, 3.14 (π), the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. This brings back memories of grade school… Haha! Oh, math… how interesting and complex you are…

There’s a website for Pi Day! http://www.piday.org/learn-about-pi/

Well, to celebrate, this day calls for PIE!!! Yum! I made a no-bake strawberry-cheesecake pie, topped with strawberries, blueberries, and grapes. Oh.my.goodness! It was so good! I made it for my boyfriend’s birthday the other month (can you read the blueberries above? Haha).
