Yesterday was pretty sweet. My cabin got up early for farm chores, Tom and I milked Lola the cow (the two of us are becoming total pros at that). We had a breakfast of pancakes and although I love them, I would have preferred something I could smother in hot sauce. We went on a pretty nice hike on Mt. Megunticook; the view was absolutely amazing, and we were an hour late to lunch because none of us could tear ourselves away from that view. After we got back I read a book until 4:00 when I was on dinner prep. It was my dish crew’s week for activity and dinner and I had planned a Lebanese dinner followed by a flourless chocolate cake. I’m really pleased with how it all turned out (I’m a cook back home and cook a lot so it’s nice to have my family’s restaurant’s recipes do well outside of it). Afterward,s we had a Chewonki prom where we all danced the night away. All in all, a pretty good day.
