Lunch In A Quaint Little Red Cottage~

 DSC_0818

Yesterday I had the most delightful and savory lunch with some friends (Karen, Dottie and Laura) in the quaint little red cottage known as ”Pickity Place.” This historical red Cape was the inspiration (illustrations) for Golden Books “Little Red Riding Hood” by Elizabeth Orton Jones.

The following is quoted from their site :

“Since 1786 our quaint little red cottage has graced the hills of southern New Hampshire, seemingly untouched by time. The enchanting cottage was chosen by Elizabeth Orton Jones as the model for her illustrations in Little Red Riding Hood (Little Golden Books, 1948). Today it is a mecca for gardeners, foodies and anyone looking for inspiration and relaxation.”

Each month their luncheon menu changes, the presentation of each meal is as delicious as it appears. They infuse each of their meals with fresh herbs grown on site.

This is the menu for March.

This massive old tree with it’s twisted branches really does look like it’s straight out of a fairy tale!, I can see why she chose this house. The picture below I had taken in a previous summer shows how big it is.

In the same quaint little town of Mason, NH is “Uncle Sam’s” house, yes there really was an Uncle Sam!
