Weekend in Vermont: Eats and Activities

SL and I went away this weekend and it was glorious! My number one goal for the weekend was to relax and have fun. That said, I YOLOed real hard in the food department. Hard enough break my weekend down into two blog posts!

eats and activities

Friday – Dinner at Worthy Kitchen

We chose Worthy Kitchen for dinner on the recommendation of our inn keepers (more on them tomorrow). SL had seen this place on the drive into town and we were excited to give it a try. Worthy totes itself as a farm diner with upscale but affordable diner (no, I didn’t mean dinner) menu with all local ingredients. I knew we were in the right place when we walked in and it was packed! Always a good sign for a place with no table service. What? No table service? Yes! At Worthy you walk in, put your name on the wait list (because there will be one) and we can either get in the drink line or hop right in the food line.

Per the hostesses recommendation, we hopped in the short drink line to have a beverage in hand while waiting in the longer food line. This worked perfectly because right before it was our turn to order, the hostess let us know our table was ready.

SL ordered the Corned Beef Melt and I went with Buttermilk Friend Chicken (again). Like I said, I YOLOed hard this weekend. We also ordered a pickle vegetable plate which had pickled everything, including grapes. The pickled grapes tasted, well, like you would think a pickled grape would taste.

After devouring our meals and another round of drinks we left Worthy Kitchen stuffed and header back to the inn. Upon arrival there was a lovely display of pound cake, sliced strawberries and whipped cream. No part of me was hungry but I made a little plate of cake and strawberries and headed up to our room.

Midnight 10:37 pm snack!

Saturday – Breakfast, Skiing and The BEST Pizza

Staying at B&B/Inns in the BEST because of breakfast. Where we stayed had FULL cooked, amazing breakfast each morning. Upon arrival, I was asked if I had any food allergies (which I don’t) and I mentioned I am mostly dairy free but not allergic.On the breakfast menu Saturday was baked oatmeal and quiche and the inn keepers graciously made my scrambled eggs and bacon.

Saturday Breakfast

I didn’t take a picture of mine because scrambled eggs aren’t as pretty as SL’s baked oatmeal and quiche. And of course, there was coffee. After fueling up SL and I headed to Pico Mountain to spend the day on the slopes.


(Insert obvious “just the tip” joke here)

We skied all day then stopped by the Long Trail Brewery on the way back to the inn. It was PACKED so we didn’t stay long. But in case anyone was living under a rock and didn’t know what beer is made of, here you go. You’re welcome.

After a quick shower and change of clothes SL and I headed out for an early dinner at Pi Brick Oven Trattoria. I continued my YOLO streak and ordered the Paisano pizza. This pie came with Sopressata, local Italian sausage, bacon and oregano and it was EVERYTHING! It as easily in my top 5 best pizza every and I have eaten a lot of pizza.


Note: Yes, I am mostly dairy-free. I only eat cheese on pizza. Yes, pizza is my favorite food. Get over it.

I made SL try a piece and he LOVED it too. Loved it enough to have another piece and still finish his entree. I was impressed.

The night ended on a high note with freshly baked chocolate chunk cookies when we arrived back at the inn. I grabbed one, and then I grabbed another for good measure. Then I grabbed some mini eggs and my life (or at least my night) was complete.


Check in tomorrow for a recap of the inn we stayed in and maybe more chat about this cookie.

Have a great Monday!

Weekend Recap: I’m Old But I Still Have Fun

Happy Monday everyone! Similar to last Monday, the northeast is being battered by Old Man Winter and getting another foot of the white stuff dumped on us.  I just keep reminding myself that summer in New England can’t be beat and we are earning one hell of a summer this winter.

How about a quick weekend recap in some pictures and some words? Here goes nothing.

I live for fun leggings and wine (and furry slippers).


SL wasn’t feeling great of Friday night so we had to miss the luau/birthday party which stunk so I put on fun leggings and poured myself a glass of wine and posted up in front of the TV. Big night for me, I know.

At least we got to enjoy some of the white stuff.


SL kicked ass at work and his boss gave him lift tickets that we took advantage of on Saturday. It was chilly but not too busy so we were able to get a ton of runs in. If it were a competition I would have won skiing for the day because 1) I didn’t fall and SL did and 2) I went down a black diamond and didn’t cry or fall off the mountain.

Sunday breakfast = Green smoothie. Yum!

#SundayRunday. Actually more like SundayJogday.


I took this run quite slow and enjoyed using my Amazon Prime to watch old episodes of 16 and Pregnant. Please, don’t judge.

I got a veggie slicer attachment for my KitchenAid and went to town.

Sunday meal prep - veggies

I made zucchini fritters with the shredded zucchini but they weren’t awesome. I have some work to do on the recipe before I would even consider sharing it.

That pretty much sums up my weekend. Looking back, I feel like an old lady but now that I am 30, I guess I am an old lady. At least I can still conquer the slopes in my old age.
