I like letting a steamy mug of tea steep on the cold marble island.
They balance each other out.
Today’s Steaming Sunday is brought to you by the Maine Diner in Wells, Maine – home to some of the finest, butteriest, tastiest lobster rolls you will ever eat. They also provided a pressed penny for my collection, and I’m forever devoted to a place with a pressed penny machine. This is a diner where you wait a long time -but you do so cheerfully, because it smells like five hundred lobsters with your name on them are waiting in the back.
The place forces you to leave your cholesterol numbers at the door and abandon yourself to pure lobster pleasure. I can taste that juicy shellfish sandwich like it was yesterday. As a matter of fact, I wish it was yesterday.
All this steamy butter talk…I believe I feel a photo flashback coming on.
If you are driving the beautiful, rocky southern coast of Maine, do not miss the chance to enjoy lobster, Indian pudding, and heaven-sent downy white rolls with melted, salty butter at the Maine Diner.
The mugs are nicely hefty, too. Take one home, and in the cold dead of winter, you too can remember juicy, drippy lobster meat – and have your own quiet steaming Sunday.
