A Morgan's Must Have

It's the simple things in life, right? 

Local Honeycrisp Apple and Heirloom Kale Salad, Pecorino Vinaigrette, Black Olive Crunch

A super healthy and super delicious salad that you just must try.  And don't let the kale scare you away - you will love it after you have this dish!  Kale is my absolute favorite green, so to have it paired up with a honeycrisp apple -well, I knew the dish would be a good one but I had no idea it would be this good.  I savored every bite.  I tried to recreate the dish at home but no luck.  I'll just have to go to Morgan's more often.  Come to Morgan's any night and try it yourself - but hurry, you know the menu changes often around here!

Salisbury Garden Center & Interlaken Inn - centerpiece

Here is a photo of the beautiful holiday centerpiece you can create when you come visit Interlaken this holiday season!  As a special add-on to the "New England Holiday Escape" package offered the weekend of December 14th and 15th, Emily from Salisbury Garden Center will help you put together this wonderful arrangement that will certainly be the perfect addition to your holiday table.  This year take the time to create the perfect addition to your holiday table!

P.S. If you'd rather decorate a wreath, that is another festive option being offered that day!


Familiar Faces

Quilting Retreat at Interlaken CT

I suppose if I started blogging about 'familiar faces' I'd be blogging every minute of the day as Interlaken has a very very large group of repeat visitors!  In this case, these are two nice women I met last year at the Quilts & Treasures Retreat and who are back again this weekend for more "sweet" fun (the theme of this year's gathering).  They are just so happy to be here and do their favorite hobby all weekend long.  In fact, they come a day early to get a head start!  I love wandering around the room and seeing the beautiuful masterpieces everyone creates.  Deb and Pam, it was great seeing you ladies and I am already looking forward to next year!

Love is Sweet

Love is sweet, I totally agree. 

Interlaken Inn Fall Wedding Weekend Destination

Do you know what else is sweet?  The bride getting married today.  Her picture is at the end of this blog, and if you are a faithful blog reader (like she is) then you know it's very infrequent that I post a photo of the bride on her special day - definitely fate happening today with my faithful blog reader.

Although some of her friends and family members couldn't make it to the festivities because of Hurricane Sandy, they'll be here in spirit for sure.  This blog is for them today - a first look at some of the special touches Megan and her soon-to-be husband (actually husband given it's 5pm now!) have created for the day.

As you pull up to the main entrance, wedding attendees will know they are in the right place!

The cute sign that will welcome everyone into the wedding pavilion after the lakeside ceremony and the cocktail hour in the Vineyard room.

An eight foot table of pies! And right next to it is the "Love is Sweet" table , full of candy.  I told you the bride was sweet!  I would be hanging between these two tables all night...

Connecticut Wedding Destination Interlaken

Here she is!  Gorgeous.  You should see this dress up close.  What you can see up close though is her bouquet:

A picture of her Dad and her Grandmother - the perfect way to have those loved ones close at hand.

Even though your special day is here, Megan, I do hope you'll continue to stay connected to Interlaken with me!  And you know I'll be waiting patiently for professional photos from you. 

Congratulations Mrs. Aceto!  I hope your day is just as you hoped it would be.


"Homemade" Proof


A simple trip to the kitchen to grab a cup of Harney & Sons Earl Grey tea (my usual afternoon selection) turns into a major desire for:

"Homemade Butternut Ravioli, Brown Butter, Sage, Pecans, Parmigiano Reggiano"

Morgans Restaurant in Lakeville, CT

Chef Blake took over the prep table as he laid out the fresh pasta, filled each section with a generous dollop of pureed butternut squash, and then made several perfectly shaped raviolis.  Fresh from our kitchen to your plate in Morgan's restaurant - and just one of the many in-season selections featured on our nightly dinner menu.   When you get the desire to taste flavorful dish, just come on over.
