An interesting and fun visit from my youngest son on Sunday.  He likes to go to the Black Rock Steakhouse and we went there for lunch.  We got a high round table and that was fun in itself.  Then we got the salad bar which included lobster bisque and the bisque had big pieces of lobster in it.  So good.  Plus we got broiled haddock with a baked potato and coleslaw.  Everything was perfectly done and just scrumptious.  What a very fun lunch.  My son is fun to be around and he is always coming out with stuff that makes me laugh.  One of the most enjoyable days I’ve had in a long time.  When I count my blessings, I count my two wonderful sons as well as my 6 grandsons and precious daughter-in-law.  Truly blessed.


I like the above outfit.  All basics and classic stuff that can be worn with several different outfits.


Maple creme brulee.  Now that is truly a Vermont dessert.  Sounds really good to me.


Then there is the Ver-monte Cristo which has Cabot Cheddar cheese, apple, shallots and sausage or ham.  Sounds good to me.


I think that it would be fun to go on an old fashioned picnic.


I love the idea of going on a bike ride and putting a picnic in the basket on the bike.

One time my gentleman friend and I took Rt 100 right through the center of Vermont.  It’s an old road and very scenic.  He has 4-wheel drive and we took a little turn off that only 4-wheels could maneuver and we went right down by the river.  We had a cooler with really good sandwiches, chocolate chip cookies, yogurt and ice cold water.  The view of the river was so pretty and there was a baby duck playing in the stream.  A cute little bird was chirping on a branch right by the window.  Almost magical.   Very fun picnic lunch and we had our bikes with us and we went up to the bike trail at Stowe.  There was a beautiful waterfall along the road and we took our photos by it and there was a person that was selling maple syrup on a little stand by that turnoff.  We got some maple syrup that was in a fancy container.  Just a beautiful summer day.


I like the idea of a salad in a jar.  It’s just fun to put the dressing in the bottom of the jar and then shake the jar for a nice salad.

Today it’s going to be in the 90’s and one of the hottest days of summer.
Good day to go to the beach if possible.
