i went to the movies with a friend last week. we talked about our upcoming plans. she said she was headed to plattsburg with some friends to eat michigan hot dogs may 21st. i said: »really? a roadtrip specificaly to eat hot dogs? » and she replied: »they’re that good. » she asked if i had plans for that day, and since i didn’t, they invited me to join them!
and boy, were those hot dogs goooooood.
i really liked the hot dog. the michigan/chili-meat sauce was amazing, just spicy enough, nice texture. so good.
in conclusion: clare & carl’s is worth driving to specificaly for the hot dogs & sweet potato fries. do it!

and in la presse, the biggest french speaking newspaper in north america.
they have another location right next to the lake: 2 dock street, plattsburg NY. it opens later in the season.
we stopped at the gas station before hitting the road again.
yes, i took a picture of some milk. 1hour and a border away from montreal, 1L of lactose free milk costs 1.49$US (which, with the current exchange rate, is about 1.55$CA). here? 2.69$CA. what a rip-off. seriously.
we did some shopping, then we stopped at target on our way back home. it was my first time there. i was happy to find some products we don’t have here:
pictured: sea salt caramel hot chocolate, coconut soda, and maple almond butter. the poppy seeds and cardamom (8.50$US for the bottle, which is a pretty good price) i took mostly because i liked the bottle they came in :)
i can’t wait to try that sea salt caramel hot chocolate. and the maple almond butter. omg.
after that, we spent about 2+ hours waiting to pass through customs (with about 115 cars ahead of us). but we were very happy about our day!
when are we going again?
