And now it's Tuesday.

This weekend I went to Maine. I've shown you my parent's house before, back in July, but this time it was girls only. And it rained..... all weekend.

Except Saturday morning, before we took off on a shopping extravaganza in Freeport, which is when I went out and took some photos. Isn't this stone duckling sort of creepy?

The people who owned this house before my parents were really into ornamental fountain grasses, which is cool because look at the neat colors they turn in the fall!

Saturday night we went out for dinner, my mom, Alyse, mom's friend Barb and Barb's daughter Christy, and me. We went to the Frog and Turtle.

We had a 7pm reservation, and we didn't leave until 10:30. People, if you are in southern Maine and you want some damn delicious food in a relaxed and cozy spot, you could not do better than F&T.

We started with a cheese and charcuterie plate with house cured pickles, and moved on to mussels and salads and rabbit tart and crepes with ratatuoille and meatballs served stroganoff style and cheesecake. Yum. And man, did we have FUN.

I've got no recipe (again) today; I've actually spent most of the day on the couch after spending yesterday sneezing all over my cubicle. You know how you lose your appetite when you have a cold? Yeah, sorry about that. I'll be back to the kitchen soon enough, but in the meantime, have a good week, everyone.


  1. :) The pictures are a welcome and refreshing substitution for a recipe .. you really have an eye. What kind of camera do you use? I just adore your shots.

  2. Thanks, Rochelle! I use a Nikon D50 digital SLR, which I sort of lucked into. They don't make the D50 anymore; I think the D90 is the most like it of the current Nikons. I've never used another SLR, but as I learn how to use this camera I'm liking it more and more.

  3. I'm a Nikon girl too .. I have a D70s, and I agree .. learning makes it all the more fun. :)
