ac and i have been relaxing in catskill, ny for the past two days and i wanted to share some photos from sunday night’s outstanding in the field dinner. the dinner was the reason we headed upstate and it was such a phenomenal event. we all arrived around 3pm and spent the next 6 hours drinking wine and eating delicious food at a HUGE long table by the creek.
we had amazing bread from sullivan street bakery (that’s jim from sullivan street’s dog, henry, in the photos below), local trout, local blueberry ice cream, and some seriously delicious fresh salads with lettuce and edible flowers from mountain berry farm. unfortunately the farmer who was hosting the event never showed up, but we all had a blast despite the absence. we didn’t end up in the creek like some guests, but we did end up heading home with new friends from our little “table family” and a tummy full of amazing food.
*a big thank you and “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” to my mom, who got ac and i the tickets for sunday’s amazing dinner. love you, mom! xoxo
