Burlington Vermont, Cheese and Beer!

The drive from Montreal to Burlington is only about 2.5 hours. Kat opened leftovers of Quebec cheeses and duck confit. She made us each bite sized snacks that were delicious and greatly appreciated. The leftovers didn't get thrown away and she didn't even fall asleep in the car!

Checked into the Sheraton and the kids were ready to swim.

Burlington has a long pedestrian street lined with sidewalk café and live music venues.  All the food looked and smelled good too.

As with most everyplace we visited in Vermont, everything on the menu lists the local farm where it was sourced from. We ate at the Farmhouse Tap & Grill.

We also had a "sweet caroline"  cheese from Lazy Lady Farm that had a lovely stink to it!

chicken wings vermont 

Kat was most excited about the chicken wings.  They tasted so much like chicken! sure, they SHOULD taste like chicken. But we're so used to chicken wings that have no real chicken flavor outside of the sauce and salty seasoning applied.
