Afternoon at Good Intent’s New Cidery and Tasting Room

Last year I posted about a great meal that we had that was made better with Good Intent Cider.

Good Intent Cider got even better because this weekend they opened their tasting room at 167 South Potter Street in Bellefonte, Pa.

And of course I got a sweatshirt before I left because I love a good hoodie and I’m sure it won’t hurt if there’s another person out there wearing their gear.

Two-Potato Latkes

We went to Philadelphia for the Thanksgiving weekend to visit our families.

Wednesday night was the first night of Hanukkah so we made potato latkes for dinner. My mom had both baking and sweet potatoes and we found this Cooking Light Two-Potato Latkes recipe for the ingredients.

We opted for the not so light but more traditional cooking method.

goodintentbackThere are still a few more nights of Hanukkah but the latkes are a great side dish any time of year.  We even warmed the leftovers in a pan the next morning and made an egg hash for breakfast.  And if you are in Gettysburg or State College, definitely try Good Intent Cider.
