A Month of Orange: Lobster Roll
OK, I'm cheating, but I had to show off my lunch from our trip last month. I'm counting the toasted roll and fries as orange. We took a Holland America cruise from Montreal, to Quebec, to Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, to Bar Harbor, and finished up in Boston. It was great fun. Beautiful scenery, light houses, flowers, history, the works.
When we tendered in to Bar Harbor, the day was not very nice. It was cold and raining. Luckily for us, we had spent a week in Acadia National Park about twenty years ago, and had wandered up and down touristy Bar Harbor then, when the weather was warm and sunny. The weather being what it was this particular day, we ducked into one of the first restaurants we saw near the water, and I ordered this wonderful lobster roll with sweet potato fries and (to quote the young woman who served us) a "wicked hoppy" IPA. When I took this photo I had already polished off a cup of clam chowder so delicious and filled with tender clams that I wanted to purr like a cat.
There is nothing more to say. That lunch was just about perfect.
