Greetings from Maine!
By Cameron Madge August 07, 2014
Greetings from Maine! As we roll on into August, we’re celebrating all the things we love about “Vacationland” with a Lobster and Clam Bake. From fresh lobsters and clams, to wild Blueberries and delicious desserts, Maine has a little something for everyone, so kick back with family and friends, and enjoy these
A “Berry” Good Breakfast
Grab some Maine Blueberries and treat the whole family to blueberry waffles or pancakes for breakfast with Stonewall Kitchen’s Farmhouse Pancake and Waffle Mix. For the maximum Maine effect, use Kate’s Butter and Real Butter Milk and top with Stonewall’s Maine Maple Syrup.
For something a little lighter, Blueberry loaf breads and coffeecakes are always a favorite! Pair them with any of Stonewall’s Jams or Jellies – made in York, ME – pour yourself a cup of coffee, and enjoy a nice brunch.
The “Maine” Attraction
Of course when it comes to Maine, it’s all about the seafood. Our Live n’ Kickin’ Maine Lobsters are the highlight of any meal. For something a little simpler – and less alive – our Chef Ready Lobster Tails are great for cooking out on the grill, without all the prep work needed for a full, live lobster. Serve either with our Super Sweet Butter & Sugar Corn for a delicious, Maine inspired meal.
The Lobster Shack is also in full swing, serving up our own, fresh made Maine Lobster Rolls. Check it out on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday between 4:30 and 6:30pm.
If you’re more in the mood for clams, our Kitchen’s New England Clam Chowder is sure to impress. Compliment it with some Oyster Crackers and a side of our Bakery’s Fresh Baked Corn Bread for a meal that will leave you and your family in a state of pure Maine bliss. If you’ve got a bit more of a DIY attitude, our Maine Steaming Clams are the perfect choice for any of your favorite clam recipes.
Mousse or Moose?
The Maine celebration doesn’t stop after the main course! Enjoy a slice of Maine’s official State Dessert by picking up one of our Bakery’s Wild Maine Blueberry Pies, and serve with a scoop of Gifford’s Ice Cream, made in Skowhegan, ME.
On the other hand, Maine’s official “State Treat” get’s some love from our Bakery, where an assortment of Whoopie Pies are available to satisfy your sweet tooth. Steve’s Whoopie Pies offer a wide assortment of flavors, including Red Velvet, Double Chocolate and more, or pick up one of our own Character Decorated, or Lemon Raspberry Whoopie Pies. Finally, if you’re family is absolutely crazy about whoopie pies, The “Big Whoop” – a cake sized whoopie pie – might be just what you need.
Come down to Roche Bros. this week and treat yourself to your own little slice of Maine, right in your own backyard!
