I know it’s not technically summer yet…but hey…if mother nature wants to eliminate the winter, I am happy to start my summer travel series early!
Today’s adventures find my sister, Debbie, and I headed to parts of Vermont we had not previously traveled. Our trip was planned around a suggestion to eat at Simon Pearce in Quechee, V.T. (details on that to come). Woodstock is the closest “city” to Quechee, and there seemed to be a lot to do there. So plans were made, we hopped in the car and headed 2.5 hours north.
But wait! We can’t head out on a road trip without planning a mid-way eating stop. A couple hours into googling every city along the path, I found it! Bavaria German Restaurant in Hooksett, N.H. Who knew Hooksett, N.H. would be a mecca for traditional german food?
Our lite snack consisted of Käsespätzle (Spätzle with cheese gratin and roasted onion served with mixed salad), a side of sauerkraut, a side of red cabbage, and a side of cucumber salad. Let me just say that this was not a quick to go. We were in the restaurant for about an hour. It was totally fine though. The bartender was friendly, and sitting inside the restaurant reminded us of sitting in our Oma’s house (which is a good thing.)
Every single mouthful lived up to Oma’s standards…and that is saying a lot!
