Pancakes and A Party

Today is Tim’s last day of work.  I can’t imagine what must be going through his mind, knowing that for the first time in his career he will be off for nine months.  We’ll be together soon when he flies to Bangor on Monday.

Polly’s Pancake Parlour in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire, was the first stop for Kevin and me this morning.  The restaurant has been featured in Roadfood and other publications, and its reputation is well-deserved.  There were so many choices, and that was just the pancakes – buckwheat, cornmeal, oatmeal-buttermilk and whole wheat batter with fillings like blueberries, pecans and coconut.  We decided on sampler platters, and I picked buckwheat with blueberries, cornmeal and oatmeal-buttermilk, all with pure maple syrup.  Fabulous!

One of the most famous fall foliage drives in New Hampshire is the Kancamagus Highway over the White Mountains.  Fall colors are just starting to turn, but I love the early mix of reds, oranges and greens.

Kevin and I made our way to Portland, Maine, this afternoon, where Jane’s sister Mary will join us tonight.  She arrived in the evening with enough food to feed the entire campground – wonderful Italian breads and cheeses, calzones and spinach pie, accompanied by Kevin’s wine selections.  The weather finally cooperated, and we could actually sit outside and enjoy ourselves.  Kevin leaves with Mary tomorrow, but tonight we party.
