Monroe's Sugarin', Barton VT

It is our yearly passage of Spring to visit our friend's Sugar House up in Barton VT. Steve and Terri Monroe have become good friends of ours. Their Sugar House has been featured here on the blog on several occasions, and every visit is a very special time spent with some very proud Vermonters!

This year we were accompanied by Miss J, Steve, and Ryleigh. I love sharing all of our Vermont traditions with the newest generation of our family. xxx

The Sugar House is a very busy operation during the boil, but it never ceases to amaze me how well the whole operation a fine oiled machine.....they work so well together and always know what needs to be tended to at the exact minute.

We were treated to a delicious dinner during our visit. The Vermont hospitality never ceases to amaze me! Now, let me first say that I am not a big fan of hot dogs. BUT.......Terri  boiled the hot dogs in maple sap......NOT syrup.....but fresh sap....and then put them on the grill for a few minutes and served them on toasted rolls. I have never in my life tasted anything so amazing!!!!
She also served us her homemade chili. Oh we were very happy visitors!!!! :-)

And the dessert!!!! Good Lord the deliciousness of the dessert!!!! There is nothing, and may I repeat nothing more delicious than a warmed raised donut dipped in freshly boiled maple syrup fresh out of the boiler. Not even chocolate is better than this. AMEN!

Thank you so much for such a fun evening to Terri, Steve, and Josie!!!! Good company, a hot dog cooked the Vermont way, homemade chili, and a beer. It doesn't get much better than that!!!

Praying that the weather allows you many more boils this year!!! xxooo
