Portland, Maine!

6 May

Last night I went to Portland to see my friend Marie Moreshead perform at Port City Music Hall! Well, that wasn’t the only reason! I also went to check out a restaurant called Green Elephant.  The food was amazing!

Pat had the Veggie Citrus Spare Ribs

Marie had the Soy Nuggets

(please ignore the fact that I have not mastered my skills with Julie’s camera yet…)

And I had Steamed Veggies with Peanut Sauce

Of course we weren’t done yet!  There is always room for dessert!

We all split the Fried Banana with Coconut Ice Cream and Toasted Peanuts.  Do I even need to add a picture here for you to know how good this is?  Probably not, but I will anyways (:

We had no trouble here…

The food was a great success!  I really need to make a peanut sauce to keep in my fridge.  I am seriously peanut sauce crazy lately!!

After dinner we went to Port City Music Hall to watch Marie perform with opening guest Amanda Gervasi.  Both were amazing, but that’s a normal thing for Marie.  I don’t think I have ever seen her have a bad show!  Not possible!

Unfortunately it was too dark for my camera skills to get any pictures from the actual show, but those are a few from the sound check.  Yeah I’m so VIP.

After the show I drove home and ate my kiwi’s for fuel.  Falling asleep at the wheel is not a pleasant feeling!

Of course I can’t forget to mention my lunch from earlier in the day!!  I roasted some brussels sprouts with some carrots and put those with some left over sautéed summer squash, zucchini and onions over brown rice.  I could go the rest of my life with food like this!  If only I had more time!!


Thanks to my hosts (for letting me take a million pictures even while they were starving!)!!!
