. . . But Not for Helen March 21, 2012

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

The cheesemakers down Route 153 purchased the old Fish and Game Club building in downtown Parts West and are busy with slow renovations. The community has begun to use the downstairs room. On Wednesdays, several of us hula hoop there.

On Fridays, in the late afternoon/early evening, there’s a local market—not exactly a farmer’s market, as no fresh produce is available. There are a few vendors with prepared takeout foods (dinner!), a couple of cheesemakers, a pickler (oh, her pickled eggs!), a purveyor of grass-fed meats, a jeweler.

Last week I bought a cupcake from Hadley. It’s syrup season (I bought a half gallon from her the week before), and this cupcake was filled with maple cream and topped with—wait for it—strips of maple-candied bacon. It was like a pancake-breakfast party in your mouth. Rhonda posted this shot of the delicacy soon after:

Amazing. It’s good that Tim and I split one.

Some mornings I really, really hate your blog. Or would, if I weren’t already so very green with envy.

I’d have LOVED it.

Yes, I will have to pass on the bacon cupcakes, but the hula hooping/not exactly farmer’s market make me a lovely spring shade of green with envy.

Hula hooping at the Fish and Game Club…so Vermont!

I would eat that cupcake.
