Beaver Creek, CO

This past weekend some girlfriends and I headed up to Beaver Creek, CO for an annual ski trip. Lots of great food, fun and beverages. Lots of beverages of all kinds. Whenever I travel, no matter how short or far, I always get some kind of inspiration and I like sharing that with all of you. Hope this post inspires you all to plan a trip or great meal this weekend!

Our awesome lunch at Beano’s Cafe on the mountain included this crab cake sandwich on foccia. You can start drooling right… Now.

I started off dinner at Vin48 with a Moscow Mule. I cannot stop raving about this drink lately! My new obsession!

Amazing bruschetta with truffled ricotta, fig and onion jam…Let me repeat, TRUFFLED RICOTTA people, what more could a girl ask for?

And then there was the vino… Ahh sweet nectar of the gods.

Lobster gnocchi anyone?

Or maybe you prefer a wild mushroom and spinach pappardelle? Good choice Mrs. Lomax!

And what would dinner be without an espresso with the cutest raw sugar cube you ever did see?

Don’t forget to roast some ‘mallows at the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch. And say hello to the hotel’s mascot, Bachelor, a beautiful Saint Bernard. Yes, of course I found the only dog on the mountain. I love pups!
