So this post rounds out my wonderful fun filled trip to Portland, ME. Sunday morning we were hungry, well pretty hungry and KT and I decided to venture to a well received brunch spot she had never visited before! Some ladies and a fellow blogger joined us and we had fun conversation and a good time.
The interior of the restaurant reminds me of a Spanish Hacienda or something! Beautiful decorations and the food was pretty colorful too, go check it out!
So I needed a reason to show off my Sherwood Gardens pictures and I love trying to be like Beth so here we go…
Kate and I wanted to go out to a nice dinner together on Saturday night of my trip out there. I think she picked the perfect place- Bresca . I neglected to get an outside photo…the snowy rain was coming down too hard! But here is a photo of their water and olive oil jugs- a round bottom flask! Wow I’m a chemistry nerd and I fully admit that. 😛
This place was pretty small (18 seats) and decorated in a simple and lovely way. I could tell that the chef was a woman (and a pregnant one too apparently!). The food was excellent and if I had a restaurant all my own, I would like it to be similar to this place. Go check out the exquisite pieces of art! (I mean food!!)
After the morning cheesemaking and vodka adventures in Freeport, we headed back to Portland and decided to go to a nice homey delicious lunch spot not that far away from Kate’s house! It was called Silly’s and it was fun! (boy do I sound sarcastic :P..) That’s what happens when you are bored at home all day and try to make yourself smile!
Boy it was overcast that day! But such is the end of winter. It was a nice brisk weather weekend, but it really made me feel like I was in Maine! Now go inside, get warm and check out our delicious food.
Well hello blogosphere! Sorry I’ve been gone so long, things are changing in my life and while they haven’t settled down completely, I am at peace again and can start doing the things that used to bring me joy. Like how this morning I ran 4 miles! Once I crested that long hill up Charles St and could see the view of Timonium, it was pure joy. The cut the cake challenge is basically at a stalemate for us, but I’m hoping that incorporating running back into my exercise schedule will help me shed some more pounds before the June wedding! So anyways, back to my trip to Maine! Lucky for me, I chose a weekend to visit Portland when there was a fun farm lesson in Freeport, ME!
This picture is obviously not from the farm, but from a vodka distillery we popped into after our farm lesson. Check out the cheesemaking adventure below.
