We've got deconstructed Swedish meatballs on the menu tonight paired with a Pinot Noir.

I love me some Swedish meatballs, but the meatball prep takes so long, presentation is low priority with only hubby and I, and I break the meatballs up anyway, so deconstructed is all around better. And the noodles get to soak up extra flavor by cooking in the sauce. Yum!

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Lobster and clam chowder dinner for the Mrs. and I, washed down with Crown and 7's. After a long day of traveling, completing with a bumpy 75 minute ride in a full 10 seat Cessna twin from Boston to Bar Harbor, I'm gonna sleep like a baby.......

You're lucky that I forgot to snap a photo of the hot, home-made blueberry pie with whipped cream and a scoop of vanilla!!

Blueberries are a pretty big thing here, wifey wants to do the blueberry pancake with blueberry syrup thing today, I'm campaigning for lobster omelets. Guess I'll get mine tomorrow.

They are VERY big up there. And very good! Find a winery and you'll probably get your hands on some blueberry wine.

@Johnd - you are an evil, evil, man!

Man I could absolutely MURDER that lobster right now.
It has been ages since I had one (last summer).

I checked with my local and they are going for 10.99/LB.

Oh well, there is always peanut butter and jelly (strawberry and NOT Welch's)
