Photo of the Day-Lake Champlain

March 19, 2012

Just a short word first…..the localvore movement is active here. Tonight we ate in The Skinny Pancake, a crepe place that must have had about 50 dishes on the menu…..all using local meats, cheeses, eggs, veggies and fruit.

Could see the Adirondacks across the Lake but no signs of Champ, the lake monster.

Tomorrow, leaving early to get to a noon appointment at a college just north of Boston…..lobster is the plan for dinner. *G*

    Oh! I am so, so jealous!

    One of my favorite things about living in VT is that many people don’t even think about the fact that their choosing to eat local is political or trendy… it’s just the way the food system makes sense!

      Yes, not only is the food fresher and more nutritious, but there is growing evidence that there is less likelihood of any food tainting as well. So it is healthier in many ways! We used to be a agrarian society and ate locally…usually our own farmyard produce. But it was considered a step forward when we were able to get “fresh” foods from foreign places. It is needed for items like pineapple and coffee, but for hte most part we can get our tomatoes and much else within 100 miles of home.

    Gorgeous photo! Makes me a bit homesick: growing up we spent summers on Lake George.

      A few years ago we crossed the southern part of Lake Champlain on a ferry and went to Fort Ticonderoga….we drove along the lake on the Vermont side….beautiful countryside.

        The crazy thing is, for all the summers I’ve spent on the Lake, I’ve never been to Fort Ticonderoga. All our time was spent hiking, swimming, sailing, etc.

        It’s a small fort with a very huge role in the start of this country…check it out one day when you are back that way.
