Why, Pie!

This is a slice of decadent and lovely butterscotch pie from Butter Lovins in Cabot.  It is one of the finest examples I have found of  this sort of pie, and the first I've had in ages that included meringue.  Not too butterscotchy-y... more like... well, honestly, first thing I thought of was how pound cake batter tastes.  Good stuff.  And the crust is flaky and not sweet.

The little restaurant is a nice example of the local lunch joint -- cheerily clean and bright, small, a few bar stools for counter service and several country-style tables.  They have lunch specials (today it's Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, tomorrow Ham & White Beans, Wednesday Chicken & Dumplings) for $4.25 and a mean Chef's Salad, too.  But what people have kept telling me all about is the pie -- chocolate, coconut, whatever happens to be the flavor du jour, $2.79 a slice.

Just another great little place for lunch in Cabot.  You'll find it on the west side of North Second Street a few blocks north of the Dancing Baby sign.  Worth a drop-in.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
