Today was crabgrass killer day. Again a bumper crop in my yard that has to be put to rest. A good day to be outside this afternoon. Pleasant temps for a mid-August day. So I worked on my tan while spraying weeds. One of several chores on the agenda today. But to hell with chores. My mind is wandering to food.
Onto one of my favorite crustacean, the Maryland Blue Crab. I see the Governor has proclaimed Saturdays in September as Buy Maryland Seafood days. And they had a link to all the places you can get these and other seafood delights of the state called Maryland Crab and Oyster Trail.
There are few things as good as a fresh catch. Some rockfish, maybe smothered in crabmeat. Maybe some oysters Rockefeller. I’m not much of a raw oyster guy but fry or steam or broil those suckers and I’m in.
So this coming month on Saturday’s I think I’ll try to uphold the Governor’s wishes and support our local seafood industry.
Of course, complimenting our local favorites is always a good idea so why not throw the kitchen sink at it.
Nothing like a little seasoned shrimp, lobster with some drawn butter and scallops. Of course, those are well wrapped in bacon. So grab yourself a dozen steamed crabs before the season comes to an end and keep the Gov happy.
Random Thoughts of the Day
- For the first time in quite a while, there is a chill in the air tonight outside.
- I miss seeing the school busses on the road.
- Some leadership might be a nice change of pace.
- I miss getting on my motorcycle. It would always make me feel 10 years younger.
