I'm sharing my cottage experience to make you feel better about the long weekend no matter your plans. Because if you're going to a cottage, you'll be making enduring memories of special time spent with family and friends. But if you're not, you'll be saving yourself an untold amount of aggravation, revulsion, and cash.
The first long weekend of the summer season is almost here, and with that comes the start of the great pilgrimage up north to cottages, campsites, and the great outdoors. While you may not be able to avoid the stop and go of bumper to bumper traffic, you can avoid the need to stop for greasy service centre fare with some healthy snacks that pack up fast and travel well.
During a long weekend in Toronto, everything here seems to slow down, calm down, and allow for maximum staycation bliss. So, what's on my agenda? Breakfast. Well, breakfast bars to be exact, and these chewy tropical treats are just the thing to fuel me through a long to-do list. Plus, the recipe will leave plenty of leftovers to pack for the road, and snack on all week long!
