Foodie Heaven

The workamping season has drawn to a close and the folks fired up the cracker barrel and rolled on down the road. The coach was especially interested in getting mobile.

We weren’t too sure about our “house” suddenly rocking and rolling on down the highway after being stationary for 5 months. Ree especially. While us boys snoozed, she just sat and panted and jumped at every noise.

After a short stop to top off the fuel tank and a longer one to refill the fermented grape supplies at the New Hampshire rest area/state liquor store, we arrived at Lake Champagne Campground in Randolph Center, Vermont yesterday. We stayed here last year and loved the views. This year we are in the upper row with no one on our patio side.

Even better than the views are all the great food places the folks go to and take us to. Vermont is known for maple, apple cider, and cheese. We already have some Neighborly Farms feta in the fridge, along with some Cold Hollow cider. We know there are more edible souvenirs coming soon, too. Hopefully some of my favorite food in the whole world, cider donuts…

The weather has definitely turned “crisp” here in New England. Last night, Mom made Risotto with Scallops she bought at the fish truck in Maine (a pickup with some coolers that parks at the local ice arena and sells the freshest seafood ever, including $3.99/lb lobsters). Tonight she’s making Italian Sausage Soup with a tweak (cheese tortellini instead of plain pasta) and some herb and cheese focaccia.
