Did everyone have a good weekend? I hope you had beautiful weather. We had gorgeous weather Friday and Saturday and then an ok Sunday. Friday night we had a laid back night hanging out with friends. I love nights like that! Saturday we woke up and got ready to drive out and explore Maple Weekend. Since Maple Syrup is the first harvest of the year there is a whole weekend for it in NY. Maple Farms all over the state open for tours and tastings and lots of good farm cooked food. Kev and me drove up north a little big to a farm called Nightingale’s Maple Farm. We meet the owner and his son and got a tour of the whole production. It was awesome!!! Its so much more advanced now a days- hehe. All the trees are tapped and lined together with tubes that collect all the syrup- no more pails. It was really cool to see all the syrup running thru all the tubes into the sugar shack.
After we spent sometime at the farm we drove into Saratoga to walk around and explore. What a cool town! I had never been there before but I am looking forward to going back a lot as the weather gets warmer. We ate at an awesome crepe restaurant called Ravenous. We ordered to share a Large Pomme Frites, the daily special crepe (which was a falafel in crepe form- MMMM) and then a dessert crepe with strawberries, nutella and powdered sugar. It was so delicious. I loved it there.
