#cooking #food #logcabin The lighting from the sun setting behind the cabin was incredible as I grill a steak on the campfire with a side of potato fries, peppers and onions. It's great to be cooking outdoors again with my dog now that spring has finally arrived in my neck of the woods. Cali, our golden retriever, watches intently as I barbecue a striploin steak to medium rare while ducks and geese fly around the cabin and land in the stream. Seasoned with garlic, pepper, salt, onion powder and fennel, the meat and huge serving of vegetables is exactly what I needed after a long, hard day working on the log cabin. As the sun sets and a full moon rises through the trees, I light the lanterns and retire to the cottage for the night, ready to get up and continue giving the cabin a facelift. Tune in tomorrow to see part 2 of this week's video, where I continue working on the exterior of the cabin and then talk about the importance of making sacrifices and working hard when I was in my twenties and thirties in order to fully enjoy freedom in my forties and beyond.
