The countdown for eating perhaps a little more mindfully will begin soon for many of us. I have to say I am not tired of party food, holiday food, excess and variety. I just love it. Home sweet home tomorrow night for me, and kids of various ages watching the ball drop from our Casco living room television, and this is one treat we’ll enjoy. Not quite as good as my niece Alicia’s, but it’ll do until she parts with the recipe. It was next to her equally delectable buffalo chicken dip on this table, and didn’t last long.

We miss our wonderful Migis Lodge kitchen in the quiet months from November to April, but we see the days getting minutes longer now, so our first function in the spring is a tiny bit closer. If you are looking for a 2012 lakeside Maine wedding venue, or a productive group meeting in a charming and restful setting, Robyn still has a few dates left. Give her a call at 207-655-4524 and see if you can work something out!
I will take a brisk walk around the Lodge tomorrow and take a few pix as 2011 comes to an end. Happy New Year to you all, and we look forward to welcoming you in 2012!
