The Pakatakan Farmer's Market is at the Round Barn in Roxbury, NY. It's every Saturday from 9am - 2pm. You have to get there first thing for the best selection. Craig Thompson and his Shandaken Bake often sells out in the first hour. It's a 30 minute drive from where we are, but totally worth it on this beautiful day.

I've never taken the train before and to my surprise they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner in the dining car. They even take reservations. For lunch I had the Angus Burger with Potato Chips and a Pickle. It was pretty good and sitting next to strangers allows for a moment to hear about peoples coming and going. Those moments are rare these days. I liked it.

We're back in the Catskills and just in time for Jason's Birthday. We brought him Prosecco and Saltwater Taffy. He made us Bruschetta on homemade Bread, Pasta with Tomato and Basil from their garden and a baked Berry Cobbler for dessert. Amazing... All of it.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire world. I've stayed in Ptown every summer for the last four years and The Red Inn is what I look forward to the most. It's the best New American/French cuisine on the beach with an ocean breeze and sunset. We all had Kettle One Martinis, extra dry with Olives. It gets the party started. The appetizer is always the Lobster Fondue. Decadence! This time my entree was the Double Cut Pork Chop with Asparagus, Baked Mac and Cheese and a side of Mashed Potatoes. Bill had the Cod with Green Beans and Roasted Potatoes. Fredrik had the Lamb Chops with Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes. For dessert was Crème Brûlée and Pecan Pie. As usual it was a beautiful experience.

It's just that... Heaven. This place is thee destination for brunch in Ptown. There is always a wait, but well worth it to get in where the service is fast and friendly. Fredrik and I had the Eggs Benedict. I also got a side of Corn Beef Hash. Bill had the Bagel Plate. Mid Week Morning Miracle.
