First stop was “Burger Barn” in Jeffersonville for a “Samuel de Champlain” burger. This isn’t any crappy Mcburger. It’s a succulent, grass-fed beef burger topped with shaved prosciutto, creamy Camembert, tart Chapin Orchard apples and homemade maple mustard and worth every nickel of the $8 price. Bonnie had the “Ethan Allen” (with Cabot sharp cheddar, grilled apples and homemade cranberry-garlic mayo) and Ellen had the Garlic Burger. Out of this world. They are closing for the season on October 18th so make a trip before then. It’s worth it. It’s just across from Cupboard Deli & Bakery where Route 15 meets 108, is a small structure that shares a sometimes-muddy driveway with Ace Glass & Windows and Cambridge Cutters. (Read the review in Vermont’s Seven Days from which I liberally stole the descriptions.)
Then up through Bakersfield and west through Fairfield (home of Chester Alan Arthur, 21st President of these United States) ending up in Sheldon Junction for a creemee at Devyn’s. A $1.50 “baby” size is enough for 2 people!! And they are creamy! Chocolate for me. Black Raspberry for Ellen and incredible Strawberry Shortcake for Bonnie. Yum! And well worth the trip.
Beautiful day. Wonderful drive. Fantastic company (Bonnie & Ellen). Then cut the grass.
Damn I love Vermont!
Tomorrow back to work.
Hey Chris S. … got your boots all ready for your trip to Chile!
