Frozen Seafood

It's the end of January, and it's colder than ever in Maine (where I live). There is still plenty of snow on the ground, and we have at least another whole month of winter to look forward to (or be depressed about).

I have lived in Maine my entire life. I grew up here, and decided to stay in-state for college. Living in "Vacationland" is really nice; summers by the ocean are beautiful and the fall months are gorgeous. I can tell you, though, that the winter season is not the reason tourists flock to the state.

(here, two reasons why I love Maine)

One great thing about Maine, though, is that fresh seafood is always available. In an attempt to beat the winter blahs, I braved the freezing cold temperatures (it was 0 degrees, at most, on Saturday) and picked up some fresh seafood in order to try one of Martha's dinner recipes.

The meal was a pasta dish with fresh sea scallops. The picture doesn't really do the seafood justice, but they were the most tender and flavorful scallops I have ever had! A side of homemade french bread (recipe courtesy of Rachel) was the perfect complement. Overall, a great weekend meal!

Maine in the winter isn't so bad after all. I may have frozen outside on the trip to the store, but the seafood was certainly fresh!


  1. I'd like to visit Maine someday. I know they've got a snazzy writer's workshop there in the summertime.

  2. I've been to Maine only once. The view was perfect and those seafoods are totally fresh!

    I see you've just started this blog! I wanna know more so I'm following!
