A Map & Menu Weekend: 11.14-11.16

Ogunquit Maine

While Michael was just getting back from a week in DC for work, I spent a good part of this weekend working myself. Saturday’s shoot took me to a new part of Maine I’d not yet seen before – Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. As it was a rather chilly day in November, I practically had the charming fishing village to myself. It’s easy to imagine how bustling and busy this area of Maine’s coast must be in the summertime, but I was pleased to experience it for the first time on a much quieter day.

After wrapping Sunday’s shoot in Portland, Michael met me in town for drinks at our favorite bar, Hunt & Alpine, where we were excited to meet Peter, half of the duo behind Maine & Loire – an extremely promising wine shop opening on Washington St. next year.

Having had to fend for myself in the kitchen all week, I was looking forward to properly capping the weekend off with a  delicious meal cooked by Michael, the real culinary talent at our house. He prepared this tasty butternut risotto recipe, as I happily resumed my place as sous chef… and resident pistachio snacker. Curled up on the couch with a bowl of my favorite comfort food and Michael by my side was the perfect cozy ending to the weekend.
