6/20/14 Friday in Moody, ME (Moody Beach-TT/OW)
I spent the morning working on my blog. Some days I wonder if I should not do a daily one…. John spent it reading.
Ready for action after lunch: off to Portland, ME. We chose to take I-95 (including tolls) because the traffic made movement pretty slow on US 1 and that EZPass can spoil a person. Then the route our GPS gave had us crossing Casco Bay twice. First over the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge and next the Casco Bay Bridge. It was a drawbridge so of course we had to wait for a boat to travel through.
Another picturesque lighthouse of Maine; Portland Head and beyond it, Ram Island Ledge Light.
On our way home the bridge stayed down for us (Yay!). We made a detour to WalMart so I (Trish) could get my hair cut with the coupon that Susan had shared with me. John did some grocery shopping and it just worked out perfectly since he’d just returned from putting those groceries in the car to meet me leaving the “Smart Style” shop.
It felt like another big day (it took an hour to get to Portland), so we relaxed until supper. John fixed a dish he’s wanted for some time called Grandma’s Casserole (because she gave us the recipe). So simple: In a 9”X9” pan place 1 lb. Hamburger or ground turkey on bottom, then 1 can Cream of Mushroom soup, then ½-1 pkg of frozen vegetables, then the final layer is “Tator Tots”. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. We haven’t had this dish for ages because I can’t have potatoes. This time I indulged with 3 of the tots while John had a larger share on his portion. Yum!!!
Wonderful evening sharing around the campfire with Randy/Sheri and Bill/Susan.
