Blooming Onion Bread

We had company at the cottage for the long weekend.  My favorite sister and her hubby, and my niece and her hubby came to celebrate the Queen's Birthday with us.     Every year, we try to will the early arrival of summer, but it turns out to be a clean-up weekend... You know what they say, many hands make light work.   While Saturday was a cold, windy day at the cottage, Sunday was a beautiful sunny day.  A perfect day to tackle the flood cleanup.  With six of us working at the long line of debris left by the flood, it only took an hour to get it raked and moved into the woods.     The gardens got checked over, and perked up... a few transplantings, and a plan to do more work next week.  You can see lots of pictures here on Michelle's blog.

The water is still very high, but the lake was calm enough to get the kayaks out last evening.  To us it looks funny putting the kayaks in by the cement blocks because the normal water level is a good 15 steps out.  It's hard to imagine that there is so much excess water in the river system.

While it's not exactly BBQ season yet, that didn't stop us from having some great food.  For our two suppers together, Michelle and Scott brought a fabulous lasagna with all the fixins....and my sister made a huge pan of cabbage rolls and made fresh rhubarb cake... I'm going to see if she will share her recipe with us.

Something I saw on Michelle's Pintrest was a yummy looking recipe for a blooming onion bread.   I bought all the ingredients to the cottage and Michelle prepared it last evening as our appetizer.   I have to tell you, that this was so easy to make, and it was so delicious.  Here are some pictures that Michelle took as she made it.  

Score the sourdough bread and add slices of Montery Jack cheese
Add a couple of chopped green onions, and drizzle warm butter and poppy seeds

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, and then enjoy warm.
