Memorial Weekend means cottage weekend. Since we have a new found love of casino buffets we of course stopped for lunch in Turtle Lake. Where else could we eat for $9.00 for all three of us? McDonald's? Suffice it to say that is not option.

Since we drove up last minute, we didn't plan any meals to bring along. Anchor Bar it is! We truly love Thirsty Pagan, but the burgers at Anchor are so, so good. And so d
