A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_8941First full day in Vermont we spend the morning at the spa and then decide to go up to the Cliff House for lunch. You have to pay to get up the mountain via the gondola. The cost is $25 per person, round trip, but if you are a hotel guest and you put the charge on your room, they give you a 20% discount.

IMG_8942They have sunny patio you can sit at, but we grab a seat by the window.

IMG_8934Because we are on vacation, and it’s lunch time, we use this as a good excuse to have a couple of cocktails. These have fresh strawberries, mint and cane sugar liquor. They go down a little too easily – and by the end of lunch we’ve both had 3 drinks.

IMG_8936I love coming up here for the cheese board – it never disappoints. There is a blue cheese on the plate, I normally don’t like the taste of blue cheese, but this one has the flavor of a cow’s milk cheese – really quite tasty. It comes simply plated, but we are impressed anyway.

IMG_8937I opt for the caprese salad since we are going out fort a nice dinner at Hen of the Wood later on that evening – so I try and keep my lunch light. I love the color of this dish, red and yellow tomatoes.

IMG_8938Such a great view of the resort (and beyond) from the restaurant. There are picnic tables outside if you want to bring your own lunch, and many people there have opted for a one way ticket for the gondola – opting to hike their way down.
