We wait all year for the Cider mill to open. I'm very happy to announce that it has reopened. But it's a Good thing that the best donuts in town are only available for 10 weeks....

Zegli take Acadia

We hit Acadia national park so hard this week, biking & hiking, that Mama ate as much crab as she wanted.  And what spectacular local Bar Harbor crab it was! It beat the lobster, which I wasn't expecting. It was finely shredded and succulent, and perfect in cakes, curried salad, grilled crab sammies. We have been driving all day, are away from the great ocean and back in the land of the lakes. At least I have Monahan's. Right?!

Here were a few highlights.
First lobster roll of the week at RedBarn in Augusta.

Even the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are special on vacation. Pb layered with fluff, Maine blueberry jam, sliced bananas & cinnamon.

Grilled crab and cheddar on whole grain. Preceded by crab Louis dip at Thurstons in Bass harbor.

Best for last: the Burning tree in Otter Creek. My kind of creative combinations of smart concepts and playful flavors led us back a second time. The above was a crab Napoleon: pappadum layered with spoonfuls of lightly curried crab salad. So wonderful!

Ummm, no!

I don't normally do negative blog posts. It's not my style. But this stuff is terribly atrocious!! DO NOT buy it. It bites your tongue and throat with an awful nail polish poisonous water flavor, with the added benefit of an aspartame aftertaste. 
A complete Waste of money and swallows. I took one sip and poured the rest down the drain, violently. I normally don't fall for the skinny girl rigamarole, but the end cap at Meijer suckered me. Damn!
