There's no exception when we travel. In fact, more often than not we end up with too much food. Whenever we get together we tend to trot out our favorite recipes...all of them.
We recently took a much needed trip to the mountains. And of course, several of our activities revolved around food.
First, we went to a place called The Partridge and the Pear. It's associated with The Christmas Store and the entire theme of the restaurant deals with Christmas. All their dishes have some basis in Christmas or Christmas traditions. Their food is AMAZING! And I highly recommend their sweet potato ribbons, their turkey and dressing sandwich and the pear cheesecake. In fact, PC and I forced the group to stop again on our way home to scarf down more sweet potato ribbons...they were that good.
Later that day we had another food adventure but you'll have to wait until Tuesday to hear PC's experiences with that. The story isn't to be missed!
Our last day we went to a cute little place called Desserts and More. Our table sat beneath a suspended lattice work covered in artificial vines, flowers and crystals. The place has a wonderful atmosphere and the food's pretty good too. And of course, with a name like Desserts and More, we had to try the desserts. Creme brulee, tiramisu and chocolate walnut fudge pie...you can't go wrong, right? They were sooooo good.
Of course all of this glutony doesn't even include any of the food we brought ourselves. Chocolate chip cookies (who would have thought we could polish off an entire Tupperware container in one night?), rice crispy treats, panini's, lasagna, white chicken chili, eggs, bacon and biscuits. We definitely didn't go hungry.
Is good food a part of your vacation experience? Do you look forward to trying new things when you're in a new place?
