Because after all the alcohol, we were in need of food.

.

I sampled heavily at the distillery while my other half was busy talking.

I sampled lightly and drank heartily at the Whippletree winery.

And now, I was ready for a late lunch. But sadly, late lunch wasn’t ready for me because every single restaurant we tried in North Conway New Hampshire on a Saturday afternoon in December was filled to bursting. Damn those hungry Christmas shoppers!

Wasting a good hour hopping from place to place to no avail, we said to hell with it and drove.

Through the White Mountains and over to Mount Washington.

The closer we got the darker it became, and we arrived at the Notch Grill in the Glen House just as flurries started to fall.

.

.

Thankfully they weren’t crowded and we settled in.

Hibiscus rose margarita …

.

With a view isn’t a bad way to end the day.

.

.

Crispy pork pot stickers with Thai ginger dipping sauce to share…

.

.

Followed by pan seared duck breast with apple rosemary jam, roasted fingerling potatoes and squash rings for me… baked haddock in white wine and buttered crumbs with mashed potatoes and carrots for the hubs.

It was all delicious and we were too full for dessert.

I was also too full to sit and watch a slightly out of date Christmas program on the bar television.

Andy Williams?

Ho. Ho. Hum….

🥴

  1. Weren’t those the same “whipple lights” hubby wants over the new pool table? Seems Maine has a thing for whipples, lol. (MY Spelchek does not want me to write “whipped.” Is it a naughty word?)

      1. Sorry. Just my bad eyesight. I saw the hanging lights a d the beam beside it, and my eyes interpreted as a whipple. I do things like that all the time even “with” my glasses on, lol!

      2. I have now reached the age where there are reading glasses in every room, and every phone and two in my purse because the husband is always forgetting his.

  2. You could have just stopped at McDonald’s. I mean, who wouldn’t take a Big Mac over Pork Pot Stickers with Ginger Sauce and pan seared duck breast with apple rosemary jam, roasted fingerling potatoes and squash rings. Geeze. Drink enough of those “Off Your Rockers” and your stomach would not know the difference.
