Golden Harvest | Kittery, Maine

With the return of the Spring weather here on the seacoast – I’ve found myself venturing out of my routine a bit more regularly.  Maybe with enough practice I’ll have a new routine…this particular afternoon brought me across the river to Maine in search of a chocolate cake, which I was able to find at Golden Harvest.  As I’m sure many already know – this is one of the seacoast’s true institutions when it comes to groceries and fresh food.  I remember first coming here as a little kid with a friend’s mom on summer vacation and hating the fact that I was sitting outside staring at a bunch of vegetables.  Fast forward 20 years and here I am picking up some fruit for lunch, some cake to deliver as a surprise…and the character of the building is still very much true to itself.  Something I’ve always appreciated about this spot…go check it out sometime and grab some food for a picnic at your favorite outdoor destination.

Flatbread Company | Portsmouth, NH

If you’re a fan of organic food…and pizza….do yourself a favor and get to the Flatbread Company on Congress Street right now.  This great establishment has some delicious pizzas with all sorts of unique toppings…(well, more unique than your average pizza joint).  Fresh salads, good beer, and a cool atmosphere all make this a spot I don’t get to often enough…and everytime I finally get to have a meal there, I remember how much I enjoy it.  This shot is of the kitchen area where you can see the brick oven that cooks the deliciousness into each pie.
