No, I said I want a Vermont country breakfast

We needed to get another early start today, as we had a full
day planned. Our first major stop was going to be in the White Mountains of New
Hampshire, where we planned a number of activities. Time and weather, would
dictate how much we could get done. But, in addition to these fun activities I
wanted to have a genuine
We got started sometime around . The sun is not up yet that time of the morning in October and tried to take a picture of two of the moon over the Trappe Lodge, but there wasn’t enough light for our point and shoot digital cameras.
We made a quick stop to try to take a sunrise picture or
two, but the timing of the sunrise did not coincide with a great picture taking
spot, but Margo still got one with some pretty orange clouds. Then it was back
in the car. The next two was
I ordered French Toast w/ real Maple Syrup, bacon, hash browns, and eggs, over easy. Margo just had French Toast. I have truly fallen in love with real Maple Syrup. Unless that is all that is available and I am dead set on pancakes or French Toast, I won’t be eating the fake stuff again. One thing I did find a bit interesting about my order. Because real Maple Syrup is much more expensive than the imitation syrup, it is rationed. When our order came out, they had a small disposable cup (called a soufflé cup, if you’re interested) with my little portion of genuine Vermont Maple Syrup. It is much too valuable (I say this in truth, not with tongue in cheek) to put a whole bottle on the table.
By the time we were done, I was just a touch disappointed with
the overall breakfast experience. Something was missing that I couldn’t put my
finger on. The food was good. The service was OK. Not bad, but nothing to
distinguish it either. It was probably unrealistic expectations. But, it really
didn’t matter in the end. It was still plenty good stuff.
