On Wednesday night, I drove up to Portland Maine to visit my old roommate from college who was home from Hawaii for the holidays. Unfortunately, the weather was pretty terrible but i decided to make the trek anyway. It wasn't the safest drive, but seeing Lindsay made it all worth it!
After a late dinner on Wednesday in the snow, we woke up Thursday morning and headed to Old Port. Old Port is such a cute area in Portland. There are tons of really cute crafty stores with such affordable prices. And they have my favorite store - Stonewall Kitchen. I got tons of great last minute gifts there. We also headed to Coastal Maine Popcorn Co. They had tons of awesome flavored popcorn.
You could get several flavors but sweet and savory.
And look you can make meals out of the popcorn! haha
I ended up getting small bags of Maine Maple, Pumpkin Pie, Salt and Vinegar and Wasabi Soy.
After shopping for a few hours, we headed to DuckFat.
I had heard tons about this place on other blogs so I was excited to try it out. It's a really small restaurant with shared tables so we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table.
Once we sat down, we immediately ordered what they are famous for- FRIES!
We ordered three dipping sauces- truffle ketchup, chipotle mayo and garlic aioli.
For the lunch, Linds and her mom ordered the special salad with pomegranates, feta cheese and apples.
And I got the BGT Panini- Bacon, Goat Cheese and Tomato. It was awesome!
It was a delicious lunch but the best part was spending time with these two...
Oh... and we got some Mexican Hot Chocolate to go.. delicious!Duck Fat next time you are in Portland. It was great!!
I left Portland in the afternoon and met up with Dave to see The Fighter. If you haven't seen it, you should. First, Christian Bale is my favorite actor. Always has been and his performance in this movie is remarkable. It really is less about the actually fight and more about the interesting and dynamic relationship between tthe two brothers and the family. I loved it!
