Happy Monday, my friends! I took this quickie iPhone shot of Portland's Back Cove over the weekend, and I thought I'd share it with you this morning. That's the old B&M Baked Beans Factory in the distance, where they still make those cans of brown navy beans that I grew up eating for Saturday supper and, honestly, still love heated up with a little mustard & molasses on a slice of whole wheat toast.
From baked beans to lobster bakes, our little city has always done comfort food right, but in recent years, Portland (that's Portland, Maine, not Portland, Oregon) has made a name for itself as one of the top foodie destinations in the country. A friend has inspired me to write a post about Portland's incredible restaurant scene, so I'm working on one that should be up very soon.
