The day after Easter

With all the hype Easter gets the day after is over looked by many. But let us not forget that Monday is Dyngus Day. Before moving back to Maine I lived for a brief stint in Buffalo, New York where the worlds largest Dyngus Day celebration takes place. What could be more fun then a holiday that involves whipping people with pussy willows?

Grilled Asparagus and Portobello Mushrooms

Such a quick and yummy dinner: grilled asparagus and portobello burgers. The mushrooms were marinated in olive oil, garlic, onion and balsamic vinegar to give them a little extra kick. I forgot the buns when I went shopping, but bread from "Daily Bread" in Levant, Maine worked out just fine. I didn't see a website for Daily Bread, but you can follow them on facebook:

Grilled Veggies

Veggies marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, basil, salt and pepper, then cooked on the grill. Served over couscous with a green salad on the side. So yummy! My mouth was doing the happy dance!

Family Circle and Madder Root

We'd like to thank Judy Prouty at Family Circle for choosing our folk bird napkins to feature in her "At Home with Judy" column. You'll find it in the May 2011 edition (on page 28). We just picked up a copy last night! Woot! Woot!

Doughnuts and Road Trips

For us, doughnuts and road trips go hand in hand! One of our favorites is Willow Bake Shoppe in Rockland, ME.

Though, Congdon's in Wells, ME serves up some pretty sweet sweets!

We've got a hankering for another trip soon!

Signs of Spring...Again...

Ok, despite what it seemed a few days ago when the snow was falling fast and furious, it really is starting to feel like spring in Maine.

Barbecue Tonight?

...or not! The forecast predicts 7-11 inches of the wet, white stuff before things settle down. Happy April first! Guess I'll be waiting a bit longer to try out my new grill.
