Yesterday to welcome our arrival to Ellsworth, Jon's aunt bought about a dozen lobsters. For the five of us. Today, Bruce turned the extras into the chunkiest chowder. And then Jon's aunt made vermouth chicken, baked salmon and we cracked open the remaining oysters from Glidden Point. Naturally, she asked us with mild terror, "Is this enough? Do you guys want more food?" 😂❤️
Today we visited an oyster farm, where we learned a little bit of the journey of our favourite bivalve. We shucked, slurped and took swigs of our Muscadet (we forgot to bring cups). The air was calm and smelled sweet and just a bit briny, like our oysters. It was pretty much heaven.
Another day, another roll. This is the browned butter beauty from @eventideoysterco 😍I was skeptical of the steamed bun, but it was perfect, the fluffy crumb soaked up every bit of lobster juice and nutty butter drippings
