I was up in Maine for Thanksgiving with my boyfriend (yeeep, he’s great!) and we spent Thanksgiving morning bopping around Acadia before our Thanksgiving dinner.
We were driving around the national park listening to NPR’s The Splendid Table that morning, when a caller rang in from Maine and the show’s host Lynne Rosetto Caspar instantly gasped, describing Maine as an evocative holiday place.
Nailed it Lynne! Maine’s coastline is all kinds of crazy beautiful, and sans summer crowds. We hit up Cadillac Mountain, Sand Beach, and Thunder Hole (which was quiet).
I tried to capture some of my Maine/Thanksgiving eats last week too.
The night before we left, I made pumpkin bars to take some to Maine and give some to my cat-sitters (with wine, they’re all things French!) and eat for a nighttime snack. Mmmmm mmmmm.
Lunch before hitting the road- and for most days that week! – was City Market’s Thanksgiving themed hot bar. The most perfect hot bar foods ever; if only it was a regular weekly rotation.
More Thanksgiving food!
Creamy lobster bisque.
Massive Maine diner breakfast. I had ordered one egg, one piece of bacon, one piece of sausage, and one pancake – yet it came out doubled….
Simple breakfast sandwich + tea while shopping in downtown Bangor.
We got home and have been eating split pea soup ever since for some fiber haha.
Happy December 1st!
