TFH!

I was out of cheese and ham. This meant a grocery trip and then of course, visit the American Legion. Cuddily said she would be there after baking fresh fish that she got from her neighbor fisherman.

Raindrops and Rainbows

You can take the Mediterranean diet too far, especially with the wine consumption. The noodles are OK if you are burning up the calories, but otherwise they will put on the pounds. So you are left with antipasto, not much else, salad? Chicken Parm? Yes, the chicken parm is probably in itself pretty [...]

Prejudicial Treatment

The excitement of a new baby in the family had me receiving phone calls from all over. The common denominator is that we talked about the weather and food. That makes me hungry and start planning to cook. Cuddily suggested we go to Sysco in Pocomoke to see what wine selection they had there and also [...]

Cap'n Granpa

The Memorial Day weekend was coming up and it is a big deal in Crisfield as well as most of the rest of the Chesapeake. It is the traditional beginning of the summer season. All the boats are launched or commissioned, lots of activity in the marina, motors started up for the first time in a long time, [...]

Cap'n Overboard

The awful jobs get done last. The Atomic Four was waiting for me to pull off the cylinder head, but there was an emergency job, sort of, the mainsail cover was torn and exposing the sail to U/V, very bad.

The Return of Eloisa

Cap'n Chef Andy | Like Summer, in February
Eloisa turned up in the boatyard without any advanced notice which I found annoying. We decided to have food and drink later. We went to the Southern River Walk which had their wonderful clam chowder as soup of the day, but Robert and Steve from the boatyard insisted on going to the gas station restaurant. It was chilly so we had a table with a charcoal grill in the middle, maybe something that once was in a Japanese barbecue grill. Geoff and Karen, the phd chemists, were there but left shortly after we arrived.
.
The special was perogies in garlic butter sauce. I used to have perogies at our favorite restaurant years ago in Pasadena, Maryland. The perogies we were served were bland, not bad, but not tasty. I thought about that clam chowder we had missed.
.
The next day we decided to go to the beach like we did last Spring, but when we got there fog was rolling in, thick fog. Eloisa was talking about oysters and we had passed a restaurant called Shuckers, they must have oysters. We returned there and I had a seared ahi tuna poke bowl with wasabi dressing, Eloisa had some oysters on the half shell and a bowl of seafood gumbo. We shared a bottle of rose wine.
.
We shopped for ingredients for cream of chicken mushroom florentine soup and the next day I made it, this time without adding tomatoes. We sampled the soup on the pandemic porch while Doc of Doc's Chop Shop and Komputer Ken gabbed with us. Doc is rebuilding a gyrocopter. They declined the soup. Geoff the chemist bicycled through the boatyard and we had a chat. He also declined the soup and said he had to leave to cook dinner.
.
Eloisa left to take a nap but she played with Blue, her black cocker, at the park with a pond that has a sign "No Dogs". She returned after I had washed the soup pots, etc. Let's go to Southern River Walk for Happy Hour. We snuck in back with Blue and had a couple pinot noirs. Geoff and Karen, the phd chemists, came and sat with us. I asked Geoff if he had already cooked dinner and he said no, wanna come over for dinner? Yes, of course.
.
Geoff is a great cook and he got out some seafood and pasta, made a fantastic sauce and poured liberous libations of wine. It was so much fun.
.
The next day we had dinner of soup.
.
The next day we went to the beach. We made sure to stop at the ice cream shop. Then we ended up at the Sandbar, an accommodating beachside bistro. I ordered a bottle of rose and a poke bowl. These Hawaiian items are appearing on more and more local menus.
.
I renamed the beach "Zen Beach". It was very warm for middle of winter, mid 70's. The beach was not crowded but full of people, dogs, one surfer dude that turned out to be a surfer girl, a flyover of a motored parasail. Blue would scamper over the sand to get a ball knocked by Eloisa and her Wilson tennis racket. We knocked off at 3 and took the long slow way back to St. Marys.
.
We opted to stop in Southern River Walk again. A musician was setting up his equipment. When will he play? Eloisa said when we leave. And it did happen that way. During Happy Hour the house wine is $3 a glass.
