Bye Bye May

Well, hard to believe but we are one month into our tour. We have seen so much yet we have a hard time believing that it was just a month ago we met with Michael & Emily Lee at Twig Farm! The cheesemakers we have encountered have been so generous and welcoming… and we are grateful to all of them. We have traveled 5500 miles, driven through 19 states and visited 15 cheesemakers… all in 31 days. We think this is impressive. Though in Dallas we were ridiculed for thinking a 10 hr drive was long! So you be the judge…
May Calendar
Here is our calendar for May. Not only can you see the stops (and who we stayed with) but also you will see some lovely CSS and PHP code that I used to hack my way through completing our site. Ouch.

We are now in New Mexico - making our way to Colorado. We are in catch up mode (some of the “catch up” is due to food poising by vegetarians in Georgia). So keep an eye out. We hope to have a flurry of posts for the lovely Southern cheesemakers we visited.

This photo was found on Rt 287 between Wichita Falls and Childress Texas. Did they know we were coming? Rock on cheese billboard!!

Cheese rig

Last week we got a hold of the CheesebyHandMobile. It was, of all places, in New Jersey. We wanted to have it for the entire tripMonkey but because of the lameness of Lease Trader, our paperwork took two and a half times as long as promised. So although it was fun for our friends to see us in a minivan, those days are over. Many thanks to our new best friend Kellie at Toyota Financial Services in Iowa- she heard our woes and expedited everything so we could spend last Friday at the DMV in New York City. Special shout out to the lovely couple who parted with their royal blue Highlander earlier than expected and wished us safe travels as we pulled it out of their drive. So far it has rocked Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia & North Carolina - keep an eye out for us…We are being lead by a stellar super hero monkey who also serves as our parking meter/toll road bank.

Everything to love about ME.

This trip to Maine was a first for both Sasha and myself… and we wanted to highlight a few things we loved.

1. Maine - Wow! What a beautiful place! When we first entered the state and saw that it was called “Vacationland” we laughed - but we get it now. I can only imagine how intense it is in the winter but in warmer weather the scenery is breathtaking. And with the abbreviation of ME. it creates many hours of word play fun… Doorman's Dairy Barn
2. Grape Nut Ice Cream - look at that photo!! That is true love! Sasha doesn’t even like Grape Nuts (something about how it feels like eating gravel) but when she saw it she couldn’t resist. And for me, a Grape Nut fan, it is amazing! Vanilla ice cream and Grape Nuts at 11am… Which brings us to:
3. Doorman’s Dairy Dream - Outside Rockland, ME. We were driving out of town and saw this oasis and knew we had to stop… Being a Dairy Dream it is all in white with just a window for service. A single scoop cone and a milk shake cost the extraordiary price of $3.75. WTF?!
4. D.A.R.E. - Anyone our age remembers D.A.R.E. coming to the school telling us of the horrors of drugs… Now if they had come in this smokin’ van perhaps we would have actually listened!! When I saw this I actually said “There are so many things right about this- where do I begin…”

Vermont finds

So here are a few things we found and loved in Vermont:
1. Fiddleheads. They are in season up here and wow are they amazing. First of all they are cool as hell tVermont Stopso look at. And they have a stunning taste - both crunchy and leafy, bitter and sweet. And up in Vermont they are all over!

2. Overheard in Vermont
“So your entree comes with a side vegatable”
“Great”
“So do you want peas or fiddleheads?”

WHAT? In the same grouping of the ubiquitous mushy pea is fiddlehead?! If we were back in NY we would only see these bad boys on the menu at the “fine” restaurants. But to see it at a diner was extra special. Which leads me to number three.

3. Wayside Diner in Montpelier, VT. It has been written up by the Stern’s in Road Food so we decided to swing by and it did not dissapoint. Nothing has been changed on the inside and the food was quite yummy.

4. One place we stumbled upon was Angelina’s outside of Cambridge, VT on Rt. 15. Along the road, facing a beautiful field of grazing cows, sits the unassuming Angelina’s. Known for their Italian food, they have a respectable list of pizza and calzones and buried at the bottom of the menu is “burger - $2.50″ and what a burger!! For those from the mid-west it was like a Steak ‘n Shake Steakburger. Chopped onions & pickles, little mustard and a grilled bun. I cried a little.
