Breakfast at Los Poblanos. Beet and potato hash with eggs and homemade turkey & fennel sausage. Accompanied by homemade chocolate pound cake, fruit salad, homemade granola, and organic apple juice. I felt like such an old lady eating my breakfast, reading the paper, basking in the sun. It was glorious!
Walked the grounds. Came across several peacock friends, the lavender fields, the gardens and the farm animals. They let you in with the goats and the chickens. I feel in love with the two new baby goats. One was 5 days old, the other one 15 days old. They’re like dogs – love being petted and scratched.
If you can’t tell already, I highly endorse Los Poblanos and will definitely be back. If you’re considering a trip to the Southwest come here! And bring me along in your suitcase!!
Sadly it’s time to leave for my next destination. It’s going to be a four hour drive to Cloudcroft. Gorgeous scenery along the way. Most of the time I’m driving towards snow covered mountains. There are ranches and farms, old abandoned houses, but mostly desolate, dusty land. Dont get me wrong, it’s beautiful. With the radio on and the window down, it’s an awesome drive.
Stopped at the world’s largest pistachio (I think it’s the largest). It called me from the side of the road. I had to stop and get a pic and picked up some green and red chile flavored nuts.
Drove up the mountain to Cloudcroft – a ski town. I’m staying at the lodge tonight, which is haunted by Rebecca. I’m eating at her restaurant later tonight.
Now I really am an old lady. I’m eating dinner at 5:30pm. It’s funny they call themselves “fine dining” but a guy’s wearing a camo hat in the corner. My food was good – chicken breast stuffed with a poblano chile and corn sauce. It was $26 though! How do these places get away with charging NYC prices? My AmEx card is working overtime this month.
Tomorrow I’m meeting K in San Antonio. I have a 10 hour drive ahead of me. Going to bed early tonight!
