Vacations are supposed to be a break, but how can I let go of what I love so much! Food of course! FRESH FOOD! Like the kind I grow in my backyard.
The last time I went to Maine, we ate out and tried everything. This time, we ate in and cooked it all!
In the morning we hit up the local farmer’s market, where Ms. Cleaver knows a couple who quit their day job to start an organic farm. They were very excited since they just received permission to drill a well ( its the little things like irrigation, ya know). We bought some local cheese, salad greens and asparagus. Yum!
Then it was off to Harbor Fish Market, THE place for local seafood, located right on a downtown pier.
It was hard to know how to pick out seafood (I spent my whole life landlocked), but soon I made a decent selection of clams, crab meat, scallops and of course… a lobster. Mine was just a little one (also known as a chicken lobster).
Here is a picture of me shopping for shellfish.
This one I call foreshadowing.
To be continued…BraceKyle. You watch TV right? You know suspense.
I’ll be in touch soon!
