The Farmer's Diner
Has it really been almost a month since I've posted? Oh my. The end of the school year always catches me off guard, a few days last week I was not home until 9:00, but I am happy (and truthfully, equally sad) to say that I am finally on summer vacation.
A couple of weeks ago, amidst the June bustle, we took a weekend drive and ended up in Quechee, VT. We did a little antiquing (I found a piece of the depression glass pattern I collect! Yippee!) and then went to the Farmer's Diner, a place I had been longing to go since reading about it in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.
The whole premise of the restaurant is that most of the ingredients are locally sourced and organic when possible. Food from here...what all restaurants should be. I had an omelet with tomato, feta, and spinach and home fries that knocked my socks off. We will be going back. (And I will be buying one of those mugs).
