We decided to spend Dave’s last week before school in Vermont with my parents. Having only seen the town of Waitsfield under several inches of snow, I was pleasantly surprised at how charming it is. I had made it my goal to cook a lot while in Vermont, to get back on track after our California trip. That said, we did eat out a few times to explore the local offerings. Our first full day there we had a lovely lunch at The Green Cup.
We took a table outside (Kuma was with us) and I went inside to order. I was about to order a sandwich, when I saw the frittata of the day sitting on the counter. Filled with potatoes, tomatoes, and leafy greens, it called out to me. It did not disappoint. I am used to frittatas with a higher ratio of eggs to vegetables, but was happy that this one was mostly potatoes and greens.
Everyone else went with hot pressed sandwiches. My mom had the Thai style shrimp, mint leaves, cabbage kimchi, and chili marinated radish. From bite one she could not stop raving about it. In fact, my parents went back a few days later and both got this sandwich. My dad ordered his go-to: chicken salad (not pictured).
Dave had an avocado, Vermont bacon, romaine lettuce, and tomato sandwich. Do you see Kuma’s head? Always begging for food that dog; finding him in this photo made me smile.
We ended the meal with another treat I saw when I was inside: a hearty slice of peach cake. We all shared it, though Dave and I did the bulk of the cake eating. It was dense, buttery, and just what I wanted. Savory and sweet, I can’t have one without the other.
