The Catskills offer an abundance of activities. Camping is a favorite of ours and as much as we love campfire cooking, a night of dining out always fits in the schedule. Kenneth L. Wilson Campground is just six miles away, Woodland Valley and Devil’s Tombstone are short drives away. Get the best of both worlds: dining here and camping there. Dogs are welcome on the patio.
Being calendar challenged, I thought last week was the end of the $10 specials. Not so! Seriously, I can’t keep Peter’s birth day straight.
This week’s $10 specials are:
broccoli quiche, pumpkin, grilled portobello-
braised pork stew, cheddar biscuits-
garlicky chicken, challah bread stuffing.
Plus seasonal menu.
Serving from 5 pm, Thursday through Sunday.
The seed catalogs started coming earlier than ever, well before Thanksgiving. Each greeted with rousing ‘It’s here!’. Contrary to the shopping catalogs that were merely glanced through and tossed into the recycle bin, seed and garden catalogs stay around to be poured over again and again. Agonizing over choices with the desire to grow them all, space is limited, so the beds are drawn out on paper, assigned a crop, scratched out, joined with another crop, re-assigned until it seems a garden perfected. Seeds are purchased all before mid- February when the leeks are planted. The excitement of seeds arriving is like getting the presents wanted when one was a kid. Then it’s back to the drawing board with flurry of changes and trips to local garden stores to check out more seeds and bulbs because it’s never perfect. The optimism of a new growing season is the epitome of a new beginning, confident that this year will be the best. Hope is never dampened by drought, heavy rains, weeds, blight, insects, slugs and other thugs.Ultimately it is all about cooking and eating, garden to table, organic & fresh.
