Damariscotta River Oysters 12ea.
Unsalted Butter: 2 Tbsp Divided
Shallots: 1 Tbsp Minced
Champagne or White Wine: ¼ cup
Heavy Cream: ¼ cup
Leeks: 2- white part only sliced thin
Honey: 2 tsp

Shuck oysters, place oysters on oven proof dish. I like to use muffin tins. In a sauce pan melt 1- Tbsp butter, add shallots, sauté until translucent. Add champagne and reduce by half. Add cream and reduce on medium low heat until thick. Melt remaining butter in a sauté pan and add leeks. Sauté until all the moisture is cooked off. Add honey and reduce until thick. Divide leeks among the oysters, sprinkle with fresh dill. Spoon a tablespoon of champagne cream over each oyster and bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes until browned and bubbly.
12/9 OPEN HOUSE: DISCOVER What Makes HARBORVIEW COTTAGE at The Lincoln Home A Unique Memory Loss Community
Discover what makes Harbor View Cottage a very unique Memory Loss Community in midcoast Maine. Join us at our Open House on Saturday, December 9, from 10am – 2pm, to learn more about our holistic approach to memory loss care.
Our safe and secure community at Harbor View Cottage is a home-like haven of professional and loving care for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive impairments. Specially trained staff engage each resident individually and personally promoting feelings of success and accomplishment, contentment and self-esteem, enrichment and engagement, appropriate to the level of each resident.
A high staffing ratio of licensed staff certified in dementia care, on-staff RN’s, and a holistic approach to medication management, ensures top notch medical support. Working in partnership with the individual, family, and physician, we develop a lifestyle plan that addresses each person’s physical, psychosocial and activity/recreational needs. Ongoing communication with families encourages family involvement and understanding of the program to enhance the life of each resident.
Healthy, well balanced home cooked meals are served around our dining room table. In the warmer months, we enjoy outdoor garden walking paths, and a lovely patio with views of the harbor. Our bus takes residents to fun and engaging outings in and around the beautiful midcoast. Each resident has their own Ipod, with music chosen specifically geared to their interests.
We have an opening for your loved one to become part of our family. Join us to learn more on Saturday, or call Steve Raymond for an individual tour, 563-3350. Please park at The Lincoln Home, 22 River Road, Newcastle, and we will transport you across the street, as parking is limited.
It is always fun when Stewart Hanley and his sidekick Pogie visit both his grandmothers, Olive Hart and Ruby Hanley who are living at The Lincoln Home. Having both grandmothers here together is a rare pleasure for all!
