Farmer’s Diner & Antique Mall

Breakfast at The Farmer's Diner

One last post about my Vermont weekend. Sunday morning it was still freezing cold. I had planned for us to go snowshoeing but I was being a baby—8 degrees at 10 am is just too cold to be outside. We headed over to The Farmer’s Diner for breakfast. I was totally impressed with their homemade english muffins. I would love to try making my own.

Next to the diner is a Cabot cheese store and Antique mall. I sampled a few cheeses but it was hard to get them down because I was so stuffed from breakfast. Greg kept telling how disgusting I was for even trying to fit anything else in my belly. But it was cheese and I love cheese. We poked through the hundreds of booths admiring all the treasures. I was amazed how patient Greg was being. I didn’t really find anything I needed but I did snap a few photos. So many perfect still-life compositions.

  4. My mother made her own english muffins. I didn’t taste a “store bought” muffin till I went away to college. Now I want to make them too. Hope you’ll post a recipe.

  5. Oh man, I only spent one year in the Upper Valley but these posts make me “homesick”! That tool booth in the antique mall hasn’t changed a bit in the 4-5 years I’ve been wandering around there.

    My best find was a set of Wedgwood Basalt espresso cups and a creamer/sugar bowl that I uncovered in one of the booths but then didn’t buy because they were fairly pricey. Ben got them for me for Valentine’s Day that year (our first year married)! I use the sugar bowl every day. You can see them here:

  6. All of my New Year’s resolutions last year were related to learning to cook certain things, english muffins, bagels and croissants among them. (I guess there was a breakfast theme?) I failed to achieve either resolution, so they’ve moved onto this year’s list. If you tackle them, please post the results!

  7. My parents went to the Farmer’s Diner and gifted me those mugs. Drink my morning coffee out of them each day and I love the sayings on the back.

    Love your blog by the way.
