Every year, I look forward to our annual family trip to Lake Tahoe. We as a family have gone out to Tahoe once a year to ski in the late winter/early spring for many years now. My mom stopped joining us a few years ago, as she no longer skis, but she always sends sweet treats with my dad, which we love. (This year, she sent homemade Cowboy Cookies, which were dee-lish! — I’ll post the recipe soon).
I love going to Tahoe, but man, is it hard to get to. Two flights and then a an hour or so drive up the mountain to get there once we land in Reno. Thankfully, my dad is so sweet to send us a stylish, roomy ride!
My favorite restaurant in Tahoe is the Sage Room at Harvey’s Hotel and Casino. It’s dark and fancy and even though we only visit once a year, the staff members always remember my dad and are so friendly. My favorite part is that everything I order is prepared table-side! There are many other things on the menu, but I never stray from the Caesar Salad, Steak Diane, and Cherries Jubilee because I like getting to watch them make it! This year, Craig was extra adventurous and ordered the Antelope. I tried it (yay me!) and it was really good — not gamey, but more like red meat, and a little sweet.
Last day of skiing — we took the lift to the very top and skied over from California to Nevada. Such a gorgeous view of the lake on one side and Reno and barren landscape on the other.
