When escaping from NYC our get-a-way was this lovely bed & breakfast The Clark House in Palenville 2 hours drive from NYC. The little shop Circle W Market I wrote about here was next door…very convenient. Stayed here a couple of times and had such a fantastic stay. Michael and Christine are the hosts and they are the best. Michael made this amazing breakfast for us…cream cheese omelet I have copied many times after….sooooo gooood! Had a picnic in their huge garden I took a picture of here. Love this place!

discovering our city | rosendals trädgård

dining outside

dining-out-01 dining-out-02 dining-out-03 dining-out-04 dining-out-05 dining-out-06decided last minute to eat dinner at the park. so easy to pack up whatever you have and go outside. the weather: a little summer rain here and there but that just made it more hyggeligt (cozy) as we say in denmark. the food: brown rice salad with avocado, green lentils, fresh dill and spanish salami…(want to make this quinoa salad from cannelle et vanille one of these days), egg tortilla with sweet potato and onions, knäckebröd, olives. dessert: a berry crumble pie. and check out our view…water and greenness. and then a few pictures on the way back and of lovely doorways. dining outside is the best!
