  1. The dunes on this part of the Cape are quite tall and steep. If you tried to tumble down them you might break your neck! At the public beaches, the towns usually help to grade a pathway down the dune, packing the sand to make it safer for people to walk on, and also preventing too much sand from tumbling down to the beach and eroding the dune. Here is an example of a legal dune path at the public beach to the right of our rental house. Some people just run down the dune anyway, but if the cops see you you will get a ticket. We had to sign a waiver promising not to walk on the dune that t
  2. We skipped dinner out last night in favor of scrounging in the fridge, so no pictures. This morning I made a four-serving frittata using up some of the stuff that I brought out from home. My farm share is delivering to Cape Cod this summer for seasonal residents, and one of the drop-off spots is a fish market in an adjacent town, so we will have even more fresh veggies when I pick that up tomorrow. This frittata has mixed greens, chive flowers, spring onions, and asparagus from my farm share box, plus grape tomatoes, swiss cheese, and a little bacon that was cooked and already in the fridge
  3. There is a rope to hold on to. Walking down the dunes is illegal except on designated paths because of erosion. Ceraldi is still in business! He opened for the season last week. This year he is serving coffee, pastries and pizza in the mornings as carry out in addition to the usual dinner service. We are heading over to check that out at the end of the week. Yes, we usually stay in Wellfleet. Our repeat rentals are direct from the owner. We do not ever use AirBnB for various reasons. Sometimes we use the agency weneedavacation.com or local real estate firms to fi
  4. Did you see the story about the lobster fisherman that got swallowed by a whale out here the other day? Crazy! He is the guy who gets the lobster for our favorite restaurant out here, Ceraldi. (For anyone who did not see it the whale spit him out and he is bruised up but OK). Yesterday my niece and I took the stairs down to the beach. They are...challenging. There are 95 of them and some of them are angled backwards. Yikes. Here is the house on the dune. I am expecting great muscle definition in my calves at the end of this tr
  5. Hello from Wellfleet. I am back at the beach for the next two weeks. This time we are staying directly on the ocean side. Here's the view Winter storms erode the dunes on this section of the Cape quite badly. A few years back, a single storm took 30 feet off this dune further down the road. This house is currently set about 25 feet back from the dune edge. I'm estimating it will be lost to the ocean in 10 years or so. There is no room to move it back further from the dune edge as some owners do when erosion happens--the front of the house bas

    Dinner 2021

    Eggplant and bell pepper stir fry with Thai basil and scallions and rice. The sauce was fish sauce, lime juice, palm sugar, garlic, and ginger. I had to use regular basil for the garnish because I put all the Thai basil in the stir fry. My nephew hates fish sauce so he freezer dived and had a tray of black bean enchiladas and cilantro-tomato rice.

    Dinner 2021

    Miso salmon with noodles seasoned with oyster sauce and maggi sauce. The vegetables added were napa cabbage and choi sum, with mixed mushrooms cooked in sake, soy and mirin added to the adults' bowls (no mushrooms for my niece). I chopped up an entire large head of napa cabbage and an entire bunch of choi sum and as usual the greens cooked down to nothing. Next time I am going to cook a wheelbarrow full. My fish hating nephew had leftover Indian food from the other night.

    Dinner 2021

    The kale is a mash up of two Meera Sodha recipes. The base is the sauce from her Bombay Eggs recipe, minus the eggs and spinach. The rest of it is her paneer kale saag recipe, except without the paneer because I already had paneer in the other dish. Both recipes are readily available online. It was very tasty, and used up two bunches of kale (and then of course I got more kale in my CSA 🙂 ) Last night, a very brown meal. My nephew has been asking for homemade pupu platter food since his crustacean allergy means he cannot eat at the local Chinese-American restaurants. Here is

    I did not take pictures on Monday or Tuesday. Monday we got Acadian redfish in my fish share, which is my least favorite fish other than pollock that we get. I made it into Thai flavored fish burgers. They were not enjoyable. My niece ate the whole thing, but commented that the texture was like chickpea fritters, and that about sums it up. My nephew ate the leftover fried chicken from Sunday. Tuesday I made salmon laarb, which everyone but my nephew enjoyed. He hates salmon so I made him pork laarb, but he only ate a few bites, claiming that those flavors are "not his favor

    Fried chicken. It was good but the bigger hit was an arugula, feta, and watermelon salad that I did not get a picture of. I also made a pan of cornbread.
