Winter vacation!!!

So last week we took a family vacation to Attitash, NH. and Providence, RI.  Here are just a few of our meals.  The first few days in Attitash we cooked our own meals in the rentals units kitchen.  Not too much to work with, only 1 frying pan and a really dull kitchen knife.  The last few days we ate out a lot!!  We have certain restaurants that we have to go to when we come to town. Ye olde english fish & chips, Kay's restaurant, and Wrights farm.  I'll get more into that when we get to those pictures.

2+lb Lobster.  You can't come to New england and not have lobster.  We got a great deal at $6.99 a lb.


So who doesn't eat lobster in New england??   My husband, thats who.   So I made him this steak.  I let the pan get really hot, for some reason I decided to add a little butter to the pan before the steak.  As soon as the steak hit the pan it started to smoke and before I could crack the window, the smoke alarm went off!  Not just any smoke alarm but one that can only be turned off by the fire department coming into the building and reseting it!! Yeah that was fun!!  And the steak was cooked perfectly!!

Who needs Red Lobster.  

The plastic tag in the rubber band means he's over 2 lbs.

So the first stop we make once we get into Rhode Island is Ye Olde English fish & chips.
So crispy and delicious.  
The second night we went to Kay's.  I didn't take a picture of the food but basically all the serve are sandwiches.  The napkin is the menu. The menu is on a napkin.  How ever you say it, its good.  Sean and I both had Corned beef with swiss cheese.  The are known for their steak sandwiches

The third day we had lunch at the Luxe Burger in downtown Providence.  We ordered a "build your own burger" on a sheet you mark off the things you want.  We both upgraded to Kobi beef,  I went for smoked bacon, aged cheddar and a tomato.  Sean opted for pepper jack cheese and bbq sauce and he got gorgonzola tater tots.  After ice skating it really hit the spot.  

And now I've come to Wright's farm.  This is the menu.  No one orders the steak. No one.  The place is huge (seats 1000 plus 200 in the bar!!)  They are only open Thursday - Sunday. It is normal for there to be a 2 - 3 hour what time.  Reservations are recommended.  
So the server really just takes a drink order and then starts brining food.  Your choices are Salad, Pasta shells with sauce, French fries, and Chicken of course.  

This is Uncle Rick,  He usually eats at least 2 chickens worth of white meat and he eats his pasta with no sauce.  The family goes there pretty much every week.  

This was our table aftermath.

I always go in the gift shop after dinner and get some fudge.  This was the Salted caramel fudge, it was perfect.  Thats poker $$ you see in the background.  

  If you're ever in northern Rhode island I recommend you check these places out.
