Amy writes: It's our first day of summer vacation together. Huzzah!!! I went off for a hair appointment and was due back around 12:30, so on my way out the door I half-jokingly hollered, "I expect lunch when I return!" When I returned, his car was nowhere to be seen. Where had he gone? Then...a text: Lunch extraordinaire < 3 min. I texted back: I'm intrigued.
When he came in, I heard pots and pans and rustling noises in the kitchen. I attempted to go in there, but in vain - I was uninvited. Not long after he delivered to the table sweet Maine steamers, perfectly steamed in a lemony broth served with browned butter. One of my favorite things. "This is only round one," he said. Hmmm...
Round two? A pound of crawfish. Oh yeah. Another one of my favorite things.
And finally? An entire Dungeness crab. Rare around these parts, indeed. But he managed it somehow. And it was delicious.
I think it's going to be a great summer!!!
