Sharon, and I and Sharon’s sister, Maggie, just finished dinner. Sharon thawed some spaghetti sauce she made a month ago, using copious amounts of vegetables she cleaned out of the refrigerator, it was that kind of sauce with lots of chewy vegetables. We were talking about what I was going to write for the post and Maggie’s thought was to talk about Halloween here in Vermont, with the widely changing weather. It was 65 degrees tonight as we entertained the trick or treaters who came by our house, with torrential rains falling on them. And we can all remember Halloweens past when we had icy rain flowing down our backs in small trickles.
Sharon cooked tonight. We share cooking duties, but with Sharon cooking at least 75% of the time, I must admit. My die hard rules of the kitchen, in terms of me doing my share toward cleaning up, are that it is always my job to empty the dishwasher. I do other things but its a hard and fast rule that I do the dishwasher. It’s also my job to empty the garbage and recycling. I try to do these things without complaint and expeditiously. It feels good to help always.
We are entering our yearly slow period, which is frustrating. If any of you are missing us you should stop by and get a sandwich or fish or something. We would love to see you.
A note about fish- because things are slow we haven’t been stocking sea scallops, but if you’d like some you can order a minimum of a pound delivered Tuesday or Friday.
Fish arriving tomorrow:
- Alaskan Cod, flash frozen at sea
- east coast halibut
- Sustainable Shetland Salmon
- Dayboat Haddock
- Icelandic Arctic Char
- 16/20 Wild Gulf Shrimp, fresh
- Pemaquid oysters
