  1. I used to make the enchanted broccoli forest recipe all the time to bring to family gatherings where I was the only vegetarian. Nobody else ever ate it haha. I'll have to look inside to see what else I used to make when I get home. The recipes you mention do not sound familiar to me. We were able to get parking in Provincetown, so we had dinner at Ciro and Sal's. It's Italian, which is my nephew's favorite type of food, and he's only home for a month, so we are catering to his tastes this month. We sat outside in a beautiful garden area, surrounded by flowers. Drinks. My sister had a Pompei, which had vodka, lime juice, and pomegranate. Husband chose a lemon drop, and nephew had a black Manhattan. I just had sparkling water, which they only had in a huge bottle, and they brought it out at room temperature with no ice, which was annoying. For starters, we got two orders of fried oysters And a pesto bruschetta topped with tomatoes and eggplant The oysters were tender and creamy. None of us liked the bruschetta that much. Everyone chose pastas for their dinner. Niece got carbonara My sister had a spicy calamari spaghetti. Everyone tried it but me, and they all agreed it was very spicy (in a good way!) The calamari was very tender. Husband had spaghetti with clams, which he enjoyed My nephew chose bolognese. He said the one he makes is better haha. I think he uses bison out in Montana. I chose a ravioli special stuffed with wild mushrooms in a pesto cream sauce. It was good but kind of small. That's an appetizer sized plate in the picture. I think I would have liked one more ravioli. Niece and nephew got desert. Tiramisu for the nephew Cannoli for the niece My sister, husband and I went for kiddie sized ice creams from Lewis' Homemade while waiting for the fireworks. I chose mint oreo, and the other two had salted caramel Here are some bonus fireworks pictures The weather is overcast today so not sure what we will get up to, but food will definitely be involved!
  2. We are back in Wellfleet for the week. We are staying at a kind of crazy house that used to be a camp for girls at the turn of the century. The building that we are in is the only remaining structure, and it used to be the camp counselors' dorm. It's been updated and expanded over the years, but still has some of the original stuff from the camp, which I'll show at some point. The house is filled with books, and has a cookbook shelf. Here's a picture of that: I own three of these at home: Fish Without a Doubt (very good), Food and Wine Pasta (have not cooked out of it for years, but their tomato sauces used to be my go to recipes) and the Enchanted Broccoli Forest (I have not cooked anything from it since college, but still have it for sentimental reasons) Here is a menu on the wall of the kitchen. I think that the american cheese and peanut butter sandwich on offer here is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard of. We had dinner last night at Mac's Shack, our traditional start to every visit to Wellfleet. Halibut turadito Jalepeno yellowtail sashimi Spicy tuna mango martini My sister, niece and husband got sushi for dinner. Toro poke bowl Big kahuna roll Maki special. The outside was toro with roasted pineapple, and the inside was hamachi, avocado and cucumber. They got two of these rolls. My nephew tried a piece of the yellowtail and a maki roll but they were not his favorites, so he got some Mexican street corn to start. Then he ordered clams and mussels on sun dried tomato pesto fettuccine. It turns out that he is not a fan of mussels, but he did enjoy the clams. I had salmon with a poblano cream sauce, corn pudding and tomatillo corn salsa. This was really good. my husband filched some. After dinner we went for ice cream. The line was very long! This morning my sister, niece and I got up and walked in to town for the 4th of July parade. We stopped by Winslow's Tavern for some coffee and yogurt-granola parfaits Some parade pictures What is great after a parade? Gelato! My niece opted for an affogato (no picture). My sister and I got raspberry and coffee We have dinner reservations in Provincetown this evening. Parking is going to be a challenge, so we will see if we actually get to eat there!

    Nephew is home for a month, so he got to pick the dinner menu. We made hummus and falafel from Ottolenghi's Jerusalem, plus flatbread and a chopped salad. My sister made the muhammara in the front of the picture. The sauce on the falafel is a spicy tahini that I had in the fridge from making cauliflower shawarma a couple of weeks ago.

    Yum, I have not made fish chowder in a while. I am surprised you wanted chowder yesterday. It was so very hot! Sandwich night: tomato, fresh mozzarella, and pesto

    Where is everybody? 😀 Last night, pork stir fry for my niece and husband, and chicken stir fry for me and my sister. The check on my husband's plate is the stuff my sister snuck on there because she said i gave her too much chicken 😂

    We had sandwiches last night too. Nobody could decide what they wanted, so I just made BLTs.
