    My husband and I got very sick from fiddleheads some years ago. I suspect I prepared them incorrectly. Now when they are available in local markets there's always a sign next to them saying to boil for ten minutes and then drain, rinse, and saute them for another period of time. I have not been brave enough to try them again. They do taste very good. The other night, veggie burgers and oven fries Last night, tacos

  6. Hahaha nope. I am a normal weight for my height and age. In an ideal world I would weigh what I did when I got married, but nobody's perfect. Perhaps I should have specified that it's not just me and my husband eating, our group has included up to seven people or as few as three, depending on the day. I typically eat 1/3 to 1/2 of my meal and then bring the rest home for someone to eat later--usually my husband or his brother. We also only eat one full meal a day while on vacation. Last night though, it was just me with my husband at Ceraldi. This is a very special restaurant for us. When you make your reservation they ask if you have any dietary preferences or allergies, and then the chef cooks the same meal for everyone in the restaurant, with modifications to accommodate everyone's preferences. I always ask for a pescatarian meal. I'm not strictly pescatarian but there's a lot of meats that I dislike. My husband has no restrictions. The meal is seven courses with optional wine, reserve wine, or soft beverage pairing. My husband and I did the reserve wine pairing since we were celebrating. They start everyone with a half glass of rose champagne while the chef explains the menu for the evening First course, Lucky Lips Loagy Bay oyster with wild seabed and spruce, preserved lemon. Paired with NV J-M Seleque Champagne Brut Nature Cuvee Solessence Second course, wild nettle rye bread crostino, Hillside Farm chicken liver mousse, pickled onion, Flora Chella flower, pink pepper, Halcyon Farm arugula. Paired with 2016 Francois Le Sant Sancerre Silex Rose The chef made my crostino topped with a nettle mousse Third course, Longnook Meadow Farm panisse, Surrey Farm radish, Great Hill blue buttermilk, Hillside Farm pancetta. Paired with 2013 Agricola Querciabella Batar IGT. My salad had the pancetta omitted. Fourth course, salt fish croquette (the fish was halibut) In the Weeds daisy greens, bagna cauda, In the Weeds chive blossoms. Paired with 2012 Chateau de Beru Chablis 'Clos Beru' Fifth course, spaghetti al barolo, MVM shiitake, Parmigiana Reggiano, garden sage. Paired with 2012 Proprieta Sperino Lessona Sixth course, Seawind Meadow Farm osso bucco, wild cedar and bay, fermented maple sap, turmeric risotto, garden gremolata. Paired with 2013 Allegrini Amarone Classico DOC For me, the chef offered the risotto with kohlrabi prepared in the style of scallops Final course, Snowy Owl coffee husk cookie, Chequessette Chocolate semi fredo, nibs and pistachio, paired with Pio Cesare Barolo Chianti Ricetta Exclusiva della Premiata Casa Vinicola I was struggling with fullness by the time we got to the risotto course and could only manage a bite of the dessert, but we took the rest of it home and my husband ate some for breakfast this morning haha! Everything was delicious. The oyster, the barolo pasta, and the salt fish fritters were my favorites of the seven courses. I hope to be able to go back for our 22nd anniversary next year :-)
  7. So shocking, so very sad.
  8. Tuesday we went to Ross' Grill in Provincetown. Garlic butter steamed littleneck clams--so delicious Shrimp caesar salad Tuna sandwich Codfish sandwich Yesterday we ate lunch at the Bookstore in Wellfleet. Drinks More steamed littleneck clams--these had a delicious herbed butter sauce. It was hard to choose a favorite between these and the ones at Ross' Grill Codfish sandwich Soft-shell crab Tonight will be a break from sandwiches and so on with a delayed 21st anniversary dinner at Ceraldi.
  9. Sunday we had lunch at the Pearl in Wellfleet. Fried calamari with banana peppers Clams casino Drinks Burger Fish tacos Blackened cod wrap Warm lobster roll Yesterday the weather was atrocious. Freezing and I think we got about 3 inches of rain. We only ventured as far as down the street for an early dinner at Mac's Shack. Halibut turadito Lobster toast Halibut with lobster mashed potatoes Whole chile roasted snapper with pineapple salsa
  10. Our final meal in Chatham before moving to Wellfleet was a lunch at the Impudent Oyster. Husband got a caesar salad with shrimp and I chose the scallop roll. Saturday we went to lunch at Winslows Tavern in Wellfleet. Roasted oysters with tabasco butter Scallop crudo Pear-apple salad drinks--a jalepeno-cucumber gin and tonic, and a summer in a glass, which is vodka, lemonade, and basil burger crab cake burger prosciutto, gruyere and fig jam panino Lobster panino Scallop and endive salad triple chocolate mousse Later that evening, there were more desserts from PB Boulangerie. A cream puff, snickers tart, raspberry tart, and chocolate tart

    That pasta salad looks really tasty. Care to share the recipe? I'm on vacation on Cape Cod right now. I made lobster rolls for dinner last night.
  12. dinner at Mac's Shack in Wellfleet Oysters Steamers with uni butter Hamachi aguachile Fried oysters Fish sandwich Fried clams Back at the house, desserts from PB Boulangerie. A Wellfleet Treasure, which is an orange flavored dessert, and a salted caramel brownie tart
  13. I toss mine into risotto when I add the rice at the beginning and fish them out before serving. They add a nice flavor to the finished risotto. I also put them into slow cooked pasta sauces.
  14. Another year, another visit to Cape Cod. I am in Chatham for work until tomorrow then back in Wellfleet for 10 days of vacation. Yesterday my husband and I had lunch at the Chatham Squire. Raw clams and oysters, and shrimp cocktail and a split plate of fried shrimp Dinner was at Pisces, a small seafood focused restaurant.

    Yes. A CSF for local fish. The goat cheese is a new option. There is a young girl located close to the fish share processing area and they are promoting her cheese as an add on as a way to help her start her business. It’s tasty
