Bogs, Bikes and Bounty

Plan your next weekend now, enjoy a weekend of outdoor activity, and remember to bring your appetite!

Autumn is an ideal time to get out and enjoy all the natural beauty that lands end offers. Whether it's a hike or bike ride through Beech Forest to enjoy the ponds, marshlands or cranberry bogs, a bike ride among the dunes, a beach walk or finding that perfect spot in the dunes to catch the autumn sun a picnic can complete the outing. There are a number of establishments still open to cater to your dining-to-go desires.

While Angel Foods was the trend-setter in grab-and-go foods, and still holds its own with two locations, there are other options as well. East End Market Place, which evokes the feel of an old-world general store, offers about eight specialty sandwiches, as well as the option to create your own from a menu of breads, meats, cheeses and other fillings. Specialty sandwiches are all handmade, and range from classics such as meat loaf on wheat to a Thai Chicken Salad Wrap. I chose the Italian, which was a 12-inch-long, incredibly fresh submarine roll stuffed full of ham, salami, capicollo, and Provolone cheese with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, peppers and olives. This bountiful beauty was so large I had to share half of the sandwich with my housemate. We gave it two thumbs up! They also offer New England clam chowder or Portuguese kale soup for $3.95. My chowder was a generous pint container of fluid, buttery cream with a generous sprinkling of sweet diced clams. Itís a hearty accompaniment to any sandwich and a sure way to chase away a chill wind.

If you prefer vegetarian, vegan or organic options, youíll be delighted to find the variety at 141 Bradford Natural Foods Market. Their cold case showcases a selection of cold wraps and sandwiches such as Jamaican Jerk Tofu wraps, black bean burritos, and smoked tempeh wraps, as well as cold pad Thai. 141 also has a hot buffet every day beginning at 11:30 am, with a half-dozen choices. A recent visit offered up polenta with brown butter and sage, a luscious spinach and cheese lasagna, and quinoa risotto with baby Bella mushrooms, roasted eggplant, sage and thyme. You can also round out your meal with home-made juices and smoothies, fresh fruit, nuts and a variety of natural chocolates.

If your sweet tooth is your weakness, you can indulge your desire for dessert at Farland Provisions. Though I sometimes like to pop in for my fave sandwich, the Herring Cove (roast beef with garlic and herb spread, which also comes with roasted red papers), my greatest joy is the pastry case! They offer a wide selection of pastries, muffins, and mini-pies and have something to please any goodie-lover. Their Ultimate Pecan Streusel coffee cake is offered in a generous slice, with a crumbly, powdered sugar top, moist cake, and an interior filling of pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar and chopped pecans. Itís filling without being leaden, sweet but not cloying, and truly tasted like the ultimate in coffee cake! Their strawberry linzer bar is topped with crumble and slivered almond, and is dense and rich. Their raspberry cheese croissants are wonderful little 2x2Ē squares of flaky dough filled with raspberry jam and sweet cream cheese. These little four-bite babies allow you to indulge, but with only a wee bit of guilt!

Plan your next weekend now, enjoy a weekend of outdoor activity, and remember to bring your appetite!

And don't forget to go by and see Coco at PTOWN SCOOPS where ice cream is fifty percent off until gone!
