Big Jud's-Local Favorite

Every town has one. Maybe its next to the dry cleaner downtown, maybe a few miles outside of town, but it is the best restaurant you’ve ever been to. Around here we are very lucky to have a few of these types of restaurants, but there is one that soars against the rest. There are 2 in the area, sort of. One is located in Archer, ID the other in Ashton, ID. From where we live the one is archer is only about 25 miles.
What makes it such a memorable place? Well, let me just show you.

DBF decided that we should head up and enjoy a yummy meal out. I’m all for huge hamburgers! So instead of doing the logical thing he decides to order a double… that is 2 patties. 1 patty= 1 POUND of hamburger… So incase your math fails you that is 2 POUNDS of hamburger!! On one bun… Oh my goodness.

I have to say the bun that this monster comes on is just about the best thing I’ve ever eaten. They are sweet, yet salty.. my mouth is watering lol. We had to cut into slices like a pie!

DBF went to town, and regretted it later. But seriously, well worth it.

So for $21.00 we got a 2 pound monster, a basket of fries, 2 drinks AND 2 waffle cones. And we have a ton of leftovers!


  1. Are you sure their only 1 lb patties? lol They look huge! I remember seeing a place featured on the food network one time but can't remember the name. Maybe it was this place. They showed a group of people at a table surrounding this big burger. It definitely looks yummy! Wendell's check comes in today so I may have to do a little grocery shopping and plan a burger day!

    How are you? Its been forever since we have chatted. Are you on Facebook?

    Take Care,

  2. OH MY! I've NEVER seen such a big burger! ... and to think we Texans are always so proud of our our "bigger" everything. Well, it looks like Idaho has certainly out done us on the size of our hamburgers .. HA! HA!

    P.S. My son and daughter-in-law used to live in Mountain Home, ID & my dad lives just across the boarder in Montana ... what a small world!

  3. Mountain home is beautiful! It is about 3 hours from me, but I've been there often through out my life. Montana truly is a different state all on its own! Beautiful however!

  4. My husband would attempt to eat one of these by himself. I think there are some days he would succeed, too. ;)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

The winds of Change...

There came a time in our lives when our planning just didn’t make the cut. We recently moved in with family due to Chevy Man injuring his foot. I know a lot of you will understand that when you live paycheck to paycheck there just isn’t enough money to put aside for a rainy day. Now I am learning to pinch my pennies even harder than I did before. Chevy Man was in an accident on September 24th with a friend and injured his foot. The first doctors told us he broke his ankle and put him into a cast and on crutches for 8 weeks, with possible surgery. I was relieved that he wasn’t hurt more than he was, but what were we gonna do for 8 weeks!?!I called my Grandma and asked if it was alright if we stayed with her for a while. We were planning on moving to this area anyways at the end of the year so that just moved us faster and in a little less desirable situation than we would have liked. But I am so very thankful for my family. They are amazing.I packed all of our belongings into a 10x10 s…

[Guest Post] Summertime Blues

Today’s post is a part of the 20 something blogger blog swap. This post is written by Kelly over at Insert Clever Title here. Which by the way, why didn’t I think of that title?! It’s awesome, Kelly! She has a great blog and I am totally hooked. I have been reading it all day. She has a great writing style and outlook on life. I’m very excited to have her as my swap partner. This is the first every guest post here at Frugal Farmhouse, so I’m a little, ok a lot excited! Also when you check out her blog, you get to check out my post on saving money in the summer.

Something about summer has lost a bit of its magic for me. I don't know if it was the summer that I graduated from college, and was suddenly, jarringly thrown into the Real World, or if was something that had been sneaking up on me for years before that.Summer vacation doesn't exist for me anymore.It makes me both sad and, admittedly, a little bitter, to lose that sense of freedom. My reward for making it through all tho…
