Kelly the Culinarian: Welcome to Vermont!

Welcome to Vermont!

With my safely packed bags I started the day very early in Chicago, leaving from O'Hare on the world's tiniest plane ever. One day, this thing hopes to grow up to be a plane. It had two seats on one side and a single seat on the other. There was a single flight attendant and they took my fancy Cabot tote from me at the gate because the overhead bins were miniscule, I was more than a little concerned.

Two mercifully short hours later, I landed in Vermont. It is breathtakingly gorgeous here! Regan of Cabot retrieved me from the airport and delivered to me to my hotel room without incident. Check out the view in this place!

Next up, a casual lunch downtown with the other bloggers on Cabot Fit Team. These sweet potato fries are the stuff of legends. I think the cinnamon sugar crust really pushed it over the top.

Next up, trying on all my new swag from Cabot! I am so in awe that I was selected for this opportunity and am feeling so very spoiled by the fine farmers and employees of Cabot. 
I look like a legit running blogger now (key word: look).

I used a little downtime to take a three-mile run around downtown Burlington. Our hotel is across the street from the start line, so I ran through the finish on my super speedy run. I don't know why I decided to run fast, but I was done almost exactly 24 minutes later.

I got myself reassembled for dinner and cheese grading at the South End Kitchen, which is a cool space created by Lake Champlain Chocolates. More on this later, but suffice it to say, I may have had a piece of cheese. Or 20.

Most of the planes I've ridden on are those tiny planes. It's pretty funny when you get to Ohare and you unload via the stairs and have to walk on the tarmac to get to the gate.

ps. I want cheese.
