Lakeside Fisherman Supper

Father's Day Menu -- A Lakeside Fisherman Supper -- outdoorsy foods with flavorful herbs, seasonal produce with a little classic comfort food. 31Daily.com

Most of the men in my life love to go fishing, and they love lakes… they love the outdoors. In thinking about a Father’s Day menu, a Lakeside Fisherman Supper couldn’t fall too far from the mark. With this menu, we’ve combined outdoorsy foods with flavorful herbs, seasonal produce, and a little classic comfort food. Perfect for my guys.




Great Picnic facilities at Washington State Lake

We live an easy walk to a small lake with a fantastic picnic area, including the most charming stone-hewn and timber pavilion featuring a giant size fireplace. The lake is stocked with fish, the surrounding area is green and lush, the lake water is still and peppered with lily pads. If I was a painter, this would be my lake to paint. We love it for a quiet walk in the mornings, many swim its breadth… and most fish it.
