Weekend Wrap-up

This past weekend, we took a mini-vacation from our responsibilities and cats to return to Brightwood Farm for a weekend of goat-feeding and mild hiking. Following a couple tastings at the Molon Lave winery and the Old House winery, we ended up at the farm around 3 PM on Saturday. The farm has diversified since our last visit (about a year ago), and now includes a small cow, two new herding dogs, and plenty more chickens.

We spent the afternoon hiking on the "Back 40" and then rolled through several hundred Madison County speed traps on Route 29 to eat at the Bavarian Chef restaurant, a casual, jam-packed, yet classy place in the middle of nowhere.

I ordered the veal in mushroom, bacon, and cream sauce, with red cabbage and whipped potatoes, while Rebecca ordered the pork in a spicy, non-cream sauce, with carrots and potato dumplings. Dinner was delicious, and too filling to warrant a desert -- we weren't sure what to expect from a German restaurant, since the extent of my German eating experience includes hot dogs at Oktoberfest in Busch Gardens.

We woke up extra early the following morning to help feed the goats, donkeys, cow, sheep, ducks, and chickens, and then ate an organic breakfast ourselves, with fresh eggs and scones. Around noontime, we returned to civilization, and spent the afternoon doing laundry and watching Beginners.
