Runner-up & Ice Cream Pie

Rosie & Coach Robin Brasslett

My daughter is in the seventh grade at SedoMoCha middle school, and she is a flyer on the cheer team. On Feb 7th, in Howland, Sedo came in as the runner-up at the cheer competition, and on Feb 15th they placed 2nd again at a competition at Central Middle School in Corinth.
Needless to say, the team was VERY excited; they worked hard this season and improved tremendously even in the final days leading up to the competitions. Coached by (the great) Robin Brasslett of Dover Foxcroft, the team went farther this season than they have in many years, in spite of a few injuries and losing another flyer mid-season.
To celebrate, I took Rosie out for lunch, and told her she could bring a friend with her. When an Italian family celebrates, good food is normally involved! We drove north into Piscataquis County and stopped at Nor’Easter Restaurant in Dover Foxcroft.  We have eaten there before, the service is always great and the portions are wonderful for the price. I have never ordered anything I didn’t love. They are anxious to please. The owner, Seth Ostrosky, runs the business with pride and is highly respected for his support of the community.

Ice Cream Pie, Nor’Easter Restaurant

We ordered a few appetizers and a steak sub (yummy with a capital “Y”), and even though we were really full, a celebration would not be complete without dessert… which is really a treat for us because we don’t typically splurge like that when we eat out. I was craving their amazing  pumpkin crisp,  but it’s out of season. Looking over their menu, for under $4 per choice, we decided to order two desserts we had never tried before and share them between the three of us. Ice Cream Pie was the first pick, a heavenly blend of coffee ice cream, Oreos, graham cracker, something mysteriously crunchy and wonderful, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. OH. MY. WORD!!!!!

Strawberry Shortcake

The second choice was strawberry shortcake. All I can say is that the shortcake appeared to be a warm homemade biscuit filled and covered with strawberries, strawberry sauce and whipped cream. So dreamy! I could not get enough of either.

So, if you are ever driving through Dover Foxcroft and have something to celebrate… check out the Nor’Easter, and tell them the Chamber sent you.

Until next time, thank you for taking a Peek into Piscataquis!
