Roadtrip bites: Marion's Pie Shop

This post has been a long time coming, I realize, but better late than never, right?  As you all know, a few weeks ago, Dan and I went to the Cape for a little getaway.  On the way back, we stopped in Chatham (whoa, that's a rich town) at a friend's suggestion (thanks Jess P.!).  She tipped us off about a LOVELY little pie shop that, really, might be worth the drive from Boston all on its own.  Behold: Marion's Pie Shop.
We picked up a seafood pie for dinner and it was utterly divine.  It had lobster (big, fat, juicy chunks, nothing wimpy here), scallops, shrimp, and cod all bubbling away in a cream sherry sauce and encased in the most tender, flaky, buttery pastry crust I've ever put in my grateful mouth.  In case I'm not being clear, it was a sublime act of baking.

To keep it short and sweet, I'll skip to the moral of this story: If you find yourself within a hundred miles of this place and you don't stop, you're missing out.

so psyched you made it there! the crust is so unreal that it makes me even less inclined to attempt it myself after several amateur/failed attempts. i ate a **whole** small pie to myself after a marathon training run in chatham
