Eric, I'm so appreciating your island reports and nature observations (!). I will ambivalently post a food pic or two for your viewing enjoyment while eating MREs. 😏
I learned from DDIL1 today that her colleague and team who were able to fly to PR with a full plane of supplies, have reached a place called Morovis, an outlying town where she reported that they were the first support people to show up with supplies at all. The photos she sent were pretty bleak. I can't quite imagine how people survive for this long with such destruction and with no drinking water available. I'm glad we were able to support her effort by easily ordering medical supplies from Amazon. Relief services in a new age! Eric, if you were not in PR, I imagine you'd be in Napa. When will these disasters end!
We spent most of the weekend at Newfound and enjoyed our neighborhood lobster fest, including steamers, really big lobsters, corn on cob, and king crab legs. Many folks took their crab legs home since they were fill....us included.....ours came all the way home to MA. So yesterday, before we headed downtown to see the Celtics' pre season game, DH shelled all the crabmeat (his first time doing this ever), and I used it to make what promised to be a delicious crabmeat salad (he put it on a roll with lettuce); I piled it on top of green leaf lettuce. Visual aid below:
Well, sadly, as I took my first bites, I noticed that it was loaded with grit.....sand to be exact! Yuk! DH is not at all fussy about such things, so he also ate mine and I made another salad, and topped it with a piece of leftover salmon I had in fridge. Next time I’ll clean the crab legs. At least one of us enjoyed that sweet crabmeat!
Tonight I made a chicken veggie stir fry, which we had with farro, a red leaf lettuce salad, and a Whole Foods baguette. I bought the chicken at Whole Foods today (had not checked it out since Amazon allegedly lowered prices), and have to say it was the most tender chicken I have had in a while. Their produce was a bit less expensive than usual, especially the organic items, but it still qualifies as “hole in your pocket” compared to our other local stores. Dinner visual below with farro hidden under stir fry....
Carole, I make my own horseradish salad dressing, and am happy to share recipe if you are interested. I have gotten to the point of practically never using bottled dressings anymore.
Minus, popcorn sounded like the perfect “meal” for that hour. ;) I think of Michelle when we choose popcorn!
Welcome Sherry! I grew up with Swedish families in my neighborhood sooo many years ago. I always enjoyed their Santa Lucia ceremony at Christmastime, and their cookies and pastries, more than any fish dishes. ;). My DDIL is Persian, so I am familiar with their foods, tho never remember the names of the dishes.
Having beautiful indian summer temps here now....and loving it
