OK so I threw the cow in there for effect. But seriously, we ate from the Earth! Here are some details of the fabulous meals we had. One of my favorite parts of preparing these summer suppers was the group effort that went into them. Typically, someone would catch the fish, another would pick the crabs, someone would prepare and cook the fish, and yet another would cook the veggies. This results in an enjoyable meal knowing that all pitched in to make it a success.
If given the opportunity, I'm pretty sure my dad could pull a Cast Away and survive on a deserted island.
But I like him catching our dinner instead :)
I did just a little bit of baking while at the Bay. These lemon-glazed candied-ginger cookies were a hit!
A Blue Crab Tutorial
The Washington Monument (below top) is a male, aka "Jimmy." The Capitol Building (below bottom) is a mature female, aka "Sook." If the female had a slimmer Capitol Building, she would be immature and called "Sally" or "She-Crab" (as in She-Crab Soup!). Also, the female paints her fingernails (claws) red (see above).
