Why did I not know this before???
Ok, I have lived in the same town in Maine for going on 13 years. I thought I knew all there was to know. There are great restaurants, fun parks, a great college, wonderful stores etc. I try to buy local when I can and am fortunate to live where I can walk to town.
Then, why is it that I just found out about a little store, about half a mile away from my house, that makes the best lobster roll that I have ever had?!? Really. There is no ambiance. It is a convenience store with a deli counter and the distinct smell of grease. I noticed the lobster trap Christmas tree during the holidays, but never gave the store a second look.
However, a Facebook post by a friend looking for recommendations for out-of-town guests peaked my interest.
So, when I had out-of-town guests this weekend, I gave it a try. What a great way to cap off the summer. So delicious.
Now, it might seem a bit odd to write about such a decadent food on an American Heart Association blog, but this lobster roll had just a hint of mayonnaise and lobster is packed with vitamins and protein. Of course, that is not the point. The real take-away is that even when you think you know a place, there is always something new to learn.
That is how I feel about working for the AHA. There is always a new and exciting medical advancement, policy idea or volunteer to meet.
So, if you want to get more involved in the advocacy efforts of the AHA, give me a call. Maybe we can meet for a lobster roll.
