T-shirt #231: MOODY'S DINER

This shirt is another one donated from my father (thanks, Dad!) and I thought it would be a good one to wear before the summer ends.

I don’t know how many times I went to Moody’s Diner ( in the summer of 1994, but it was a lot. I was a counselor at Camp Med-O-Lark (, and Moody’s was just a 20-minute drive down route 220. The food was delicious and the prices were perfect for the next-to-nothing salary of a camp counselor (My father and I went there when he came to visit me, and he liked the prices too!). The atmosphere and friendly service made it the perfect place to hang out after a long day at camp, and it was good to have a “non-party” sanctuary for those nights we needed to just relax. Moody’s was also where I first tried tartar sauce on french fries (I think I have Gary to thank for that?). If you haven’t tried, I highly recommend it.

A few years ago when my Aunt mentioned to me she knew about Moody’s, I told her how I loved going there that summer. She picked up the Moody’s Cookbook for me, and the nacho meat-dip recipe in it became a hit at parties I made it for. Now that I think of it, I should have my mother take a look at some of the desserts in it…I’m sure she would do a much better job than me!

So if you are in the Waldoboro, ME area, I highly recommend going to Moody’s. You will not be disappointed!


  1. I love Moody's! The food and memories. Wish it was close to Atlanta.

  2. It was a fun summer! You should make a road trip up to ME and pick me up on your way!

  3. Any vegan recipes in that book? ;-)

  4. I will have to look Ca, but guess what? I have not had meat in a week! I know that's nothing for you, but it's a lot for me! :)

  5. AWESOME!!!!! KEEP IT UP!!!!!!!!
    Have you noticed a difference in how you feel?
