It’s been a while since I posted and I am trying to baby-step-it back in. Let’s start things the easy way. My breakfast from today: two eggs over easy, sprouted grain toast, and well-done hash browns from Hearty Kitchen in West Hartford. Oh, and a side of Mike’s waffle with berry compote. I respect any breakfast place that serves real maple syrup, and Hearty Kitchen’s is local Connecticut syrup too boot. They have a lot of kinks to work out in service, but the food was great.

I went to Fordham in the Bronx for college, and while I admittedly spent more time at the local diners and pizza places than I did in the bakeries and butcheries on Arthur Avenue, I’m pretty grateful my friend Matt still lives and works in the area and always picks up some of the good stuff on the way up to Vermont. Diners and pizza you can get anywhere. Paired with a nice glass of wine and a roaring fire and you’ve got yourself a perfect apres ski party. (Or, apres anything, really)
If you have not gotten your Christmas tree yet, this is the last weekend you can visit the the Smutnick Christmas Tree Farm in Pomfret. You should go. These pictures were taken last weekend when it was snowing and 16 degrees. This weekend it should be warmer and greener.

For some reason I never posted pictures from our excursion to the Quechee Gorge. I posted my recommendations for five good places to eat near the Gorge, and I posted about the Farmer’s Diner which is right around the corner from the Gorge, but I never posted these pictures of the actual gorge.
Now, you may not be able to hike this in snow–most casual hikers choose to not hike in snow–but you can certainly walk across the bridge over the gorge, and then go get some pancakes.
