Cheeseburger Road Trip

So who the heck goes on a road trip just for a Bacon Cheeseburger?  Oh right, me!  And my friend Ibby.  We have issues.

But if loving bacon is wrong we don’t want to be right.


Don’t worry, we didn’t dress up for cheeseburgers.  I just wanted to show off my New Years outfit for the twelfth time.

I ate healthy toast before we left.


Chibi got up close and personal in the front seat.


Obviously there was road caffeine.  Did you know that the Coco Cappuccino is actually the cappuccino version of the Cafe Mocha?  I didn’t. 


Yup, 1.5 hour drive to Nanaimo to meet my Mom and Uncle for lunch at Gilly B’s.  Home of my favouritest Bacon Cheeseburger on the island.


And if you are going to drive all that way for lunch you might as well get your fries turned into poutine too.


Thankfully Gilly B’s didn’t prove me wrong…Ibby agreed it was a damn fine burger (or at least he’s just really nice saying that!!)

Chibi and I bonded while devising a plan to steal Ibby’s truck.  We got sidetracked by the food coma and doggie kisses though.


Return trip cooookie.


After a pit stop in Chemainus to visit Mel and Ryan we headed back home.  It had actually been a few hours since food so I reheated a bowl of Moroccan Stew and settled into the couch.


I fell asleep about 3 minutes after laying down and didn’t wake up again until 2am when I promptly dragged my behind to bed.

Clearly road trip cheeseburgers make a tired Jaime.  Zzzzzzzzzz.

Cute name for a cute dog! I love road trips myself and I would say a burger plate that looks that good is more than worth the drive.

I tried to hit Gilly B's on the way home from Tofino yesterday, but they are closed on Mondays! :( :( :( We ate at Gina's instead. And now I need a burger date because I was totally psyched up for one!
