Day 231 LocalrootZ Project (August 22, 2010)

Herb Roasted Viking Potatoes
Manchego/Capherlilli Omelet
w/ broccoli, kale, peppers, garlic & shallots
Oatmeal Toast

A wonderful breakfast/lunch after another great night of sleeping in our own bed.... slipping back into the East Coast time zone took a little longer than I thought it would !  Anyhow we are so happy to be back to Maine food.  Now that summer is winding down I am gonna get a little stricter with my beer consumption...limiting myself to just a couple every Sunday (football day).
Today I was happy to choose a new Allagash Fluxus 2010

A fantastic stout brewed with cocoa nibs and aged in bourbon barrels which creates a smooth,
dry stout that leans more on the refreshing side rather than the
mouth coated creaminess of other stouts on the market !
And at 10.3% alcohol you don't need too many....

Sliced Toast

Day 221-229 LocalrootZ Project (August 12-20, 2010)

Pacific Northwest Vacation !

What a wonderful break from the east coast.  Cassi and I have not really been out of Maine for 4 years so it was nice to have some exploring to do with our eyes and mouths.  We ate so much smoked salmon and enjoyed many treats as you can see above. Some highlights included Pike Brewing Company, Skagway Brewing Company, Fran's Chocolates,  Rainer Cherries, Truffle Mushrooms, Escargo, Smoked Salmon, Smoked Tuna, Alaskan Butterfish, Blackberries, Piroshsky's Russian Bakery, Pacific Oysters, Local Salmon Shashimi, Rock Lobster... and more.  So many highlighs to list but we really really enjoyed the Pike Market Place in Seattle, as well as downtown Victoria, British Columbia !  Important news... I proposed to Cassi on the Victoria waterfront and se said YES !
We are now engaged and will be sealing the deal sometime next summer....
