fall food interlude

It's my raison d'etre.  To create a life that revolves around the people you love enjoying a meal and each other around a table.  It always looks good!

We were kindly invited to spend the last long October weekend in Maine where it's about family, friends, fun, and food.  Nothing beats a great group of people getting together in an environment that is so enticing, inviting, inspiring and then cook & share a meal together!
 The seaweed from the lobsters!!
 The lovely table. German potato salad, local salad, roasted beets.
 prepping the table.
 A toast.
 runaway (Maine) lobster.
It was gourmet, but local, simple & delicious.  Tables were pushed together and new friends were made.
For the interiors buffs: the home is simplistic perfection.  Minimal farm house from early 1700s with unfinished walls and great antique rugs throughout.  The kitchen is the real heart and this long table in the middle of it is a great gathering place.  A long walk in the woods to the lake the next day helped to prep us for the next meal.

Can't wait.
