Bread this week

Rosemary Olive Oil – made with bread flour and a bit of freshly milled white whole wheat for a little more flavor and texture. Fresh rosemary from the garden and olive oil to make for a nice tender crumb and a nice crisp crust. A great all around bread – $5/loaf

Black Pepper Walnut- made with a nice mix of flours, bread flour, fresh milled whole wheat and rye. A fair amount of black pepper and toasted walnuts give this bread great flavor with just a bit of peppery bite to it. Would go well with all sorts of meats and cheese – $5/loaf

And for pastry this week – a special Halloween treat!

Pumpkin Brioche: A brioche full of fall flavors – rich brioche dough full of eggs, butter sugar and honey then flavored with pumpkin puree! As well as all those pumpkin spices that make pumpkin pie so delicious – cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.  – 2/$5


Last week we stayed at a very comfortable B&B a few miles south of Annapolis, on a little peninsula called Arundel on the Bay. Anne Arundel is also the name of the county which includes Annapolis, also the Capital of Maryland. They are named after Lady Anne Arundell , who at the age of 13 was married by arrangement to Cecilius Calvert, second Lord Baltimore.

Mostly it was sunny and warm, with daytime highs in the mid-seventies, cooling toward 60 at night. Everything was still green, in the lovely light shades of the area.



We planned to stay in a little cottage near the coast. Arrived at 0130 after a delayed flight to find a completely unacceptable accommodation, and wound up at an unlikely motel in Bucksport, Maine perched on the water with a great view of Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge. Even on a rainy day the view is soothing and still showing lots of fall color…(click photo for larger view)



more fall color near Blue Hill







Any trip to Maine involves lots of “chowdah” tasting…
