Provincetown, The "Outer Cape" and Wellfleet Too

Recommended Posts

Absolutely beautiful. The food AND the view. I was planning to be back in Boston this fall and was going to make a trip out on the Cape, but life intervened and it's not going to happen. Sigh. Maybe next year.

Groan. So gorgeous. My caprese salad is good, but it can't touch that.

It's beautiful, and makes me envy your trips anew!  The Cod Reuben brought me up short, though. How was it?  Did the cod stand up to the other parts of that sandwich?

It was very tasty,  Cod is such a mild fish.  I don't normally enjoy cheese with fish, but in this case, it was acceptable.

 

I have not looked at my Oysterfest photos yet, but here are some from a takeout dinner on Friday night.  Marconi Station BBQ in Wellfleet.  My brother has been trying to get us to go here for years, but we always want fish.  He took advantage of the fact that my husband and I were the last people out to Wellfleet and got takeout for dinner.  It was late and I was appreciative.

 

Brisket

There were sides of mac and cheese, slaw, cornbread, and baked beans.  I only had a piece of fried chicken.  It was very different than the fried chicken I am used to, with a thicker coating.  It actually reminded me of this broasted chicken that a local to me grocery sells (Roche Brothers). I prefer my family's recipe, which is marinated in buttermilk and hot sauce and then lightly coated with seasoned flour before frying.

Sorry about the delay on the final installment.  We had a power outage that led to some connectivity issues until my husband had time to restore our network.  Oysterfest day one was a bit of a bust.  It rained really hard, and it was also incredibly crowded.  We could not even get near some of the food tents.  We did manage a few things.  

 

Clam cakes

Baked oysters

And then went here

For this

Then we gave up and walked back to the house.

 

We ventured out later that night for dinner at Mac's Shack.  Oysters
