A Whole Lotta Crunch

We Found The BEST Ever Granola!

It’s soft, fresh, delicious and made right here on  Cape Cod

A Whole Lot Of Crunch

Recently, we visited the Bass River Farmers Market in South Yarmouth and tried A Whole Lotta Crunch  Don’t let the name fool you! This is not old box store granola AT ALL!  Just FRESH, MOIST, DELICIOUS Granola! It is the best we have ever had and worth a visit to the farm market or better yet just order online from wherever you are!

A Whole Lotta Crunch is an all natural, wholesome snack.  Have it mixed with berries and cereal, create your own  fruit and yogurt scrumptious parfait. We even sprinkled some on top of a sliced banana for breakfast, or just munch on some plain as a snack or late night  treat.

Oats, Dates, Raisins, Sliced Almonds, Wheat Germ, Cinnamon Dried Cranberries, Shredded Coconut  are just some of the Yummy ingredients that make this product absolutely Yummy!  Do we dare mention it’s good for you too!

Owner Valerie Stone has created a niche for her products and with some luck and perseverance Kids Muchin’ and Crunch Granola will be in Whole Foods in the near future! In the meantime you purchase the product on Cape Cod or by ordering directly through her website.

MIDNIGHT FARM Vineyard Haven

We have visited Midnight Farm several times over the years and loved the atmosphere and mood of the store. This year we found out they moved to a space across the street from where they had previously been.

Midnight Farm

Midnight Farm  is a HOME store that represents Tamara Weiss’s passion for all things beautiful, textural, organic, reclaimed, hand made or unique. Tamara travels the world and gains inspiration from the artists, musicians and friends she meets along the way, including her friend and business partner, Carly Simon. Tamara and Carly have been lifelong friends. The store was named by Carly Simon who also penned a poem which led to a children’s book called “Midnight Farm”. 

Midnight Farm

The shop is big on comfort and style. Tamara Weiss carefully curates the unusual selection of goods:  furniture, bedding, art as well as clothing, jewelry and shoes for women, men, and children. 

Midnight Farm

The store pays homage to Vintage textiles from Morocco, India and Turkey sit side by side with luxurious silk bedding, candles, perfumes, books and treasures for the HOME, BODY and SPIRIT.

Midnight Farm

Specialty foods like local honey, sea salt, spicy kale, organic small batch granola, bacon jam, chocolates, and the ever-present mango lime salsa are some of the delectable foods one might find. 

Midnight Farm

You’ll also find copies of Tamara Weiss’s book  “Potluck at Midnight Farm”. Released in 2002, the cookbook style guide gives over 100 recipes  from potluck dinners hosted or attended by the author. PotLuck at Midnight Farm

Lobster Pot Provincetown 1

The Lobster Pot Provincetown MA

Appetizers, Lobster and More Overlooking The Provincetown Harbor

Recently, we visited The Lobster Pot Restaurant in Provincetown.   We had some great appetizers and lobster and of course wine! Owner and Chef,  Tim McNulty has established an exceptional menu, service and atmosphere for the restaurant. Luckily, our recent visit was before the busy tourist season to come. So relax have a glass of Cabernet or a Lobster Pot signature cocktail! 

Lobster Avocado Cocktail

Here are a few appetizers we recommend  next time you decide to take the ride to Ptown!

Lobster Avocado Cocktail  – Meat from half of a 1 1/3 pound lobster, diced avocado and mango, sweet pepper vinaigrette and tarragon mayo. This was delicious!

Soft Shell Crab

Soft Shell Crab – breaded and fried served with garlic butter on parmigian toast. The light salad toppings and light creamy dressing were a unique added top off to this dish. Perhaps we should have ordered two!
