What I Ate in Maine

 You have to eat blueberries in Maine, preferably inside a muffin from the Owl's Head General Store.

 It's best if you can eat it on blue dishes and mats etc.

 I did not eat these French Caramels at Sweets and Meats though temptation beckoned.

 Nor did I taste Sweet's refined thin Whoopee Pies. I hope I don't regret it...

 I didn't taste these Belted Galloways and have no plans to, but they are pretty...

 No exotic beet-chevre-walnut pizzas either at the Camden Farmer's Market...

 No cakes either

 But I did eat steamed clams last night.

 And at lunchtime, my favorite...

 LOBSTER! Lobstermen have to eat too so I was helping them out.

 A lobsteresque sketch...

Adieu fabulous Maine food!

    Your pictures just make my mouth water.

    Love Denise

  5. Carol, you beautifully captured those typically Maine coast fun flavors. In my opinion looking at them is as enjoyable as eating them, blueberries, corn & lobster~primary colored delights! Love that lobster painting even more than the taste! Wishing you a good trip home! Rita

  9. I cannot believe you passed up a whoopie pie for lobster. Gulp!

    I love your painting of Mr. Lobsteresque, though. Looks like he's got one eyebrow raised in a "You didn't eat the caramals either???" look.

    (P.S. I had to give Harry a bath on Saturday. You can read the whole sad story in today's post on my blog...)

  12. I always wanted to go to Maine. I finally made it to New York in July, my first trip out East in the States. I loved it! I am hoping to go to Boston or Montreal next but Maine looks so delicious!

    1. you can't buy just a slice...only the WHOLE pie so I had to pass sadly on Uproot

      I'm certain I came back with a few extra pds anyway -
      too many bluesberry muffins IMHO
