Margaret and Henry – mostly Margaret – review and rate soups and supper dishes from 8 months of this blog.
Henry and Margaret pitch in, taking us through some of the recipes from the past 8 months with their thoughts and ratings. Part I is mostly seafood dishes.
Dinner at home or in a restaurant shouldn’t be completely bereft of moisture, but sometimes it happens… also, a bit about quahogs and classic traditional brothy quahog chowder recipe I got from my grandmother.
What’s the biggest threat to the Maine gardener’s peace of mind? I polled my neighbors, and they all agreed…
There must be a language problem between those who have, and those who have not. Hard to say… but a spicy Tunisian dish called Kefta Ghan’ Mi Bel’ breaks down all barriers – one of my favorite dinners so far this year (my wife made it – thanks!)
Cutler says Maine Dems wooed him in 2011. Dems say their meeting with Cutler was wooless. Someone’s fibbing! Also, Rep. Jeff Evangelos weighs in on the real, surprise effect of Cutler’s candidacy on this race.
“No News,” an old vaudeville routine, exhumed and retold. Plus, a classic Manhattan – good any time of year, but not very often.
Margaret writes in with a story of doing something small for Henry without claiming credit for it, like moving the Dazey Swing-Away can opener back to its start position. Also, how she prepares cut green beans from a can.
Foodless this week – instead, dipping my toes into the Maine gubernatorial race and some thoughts on why the two challengers – Michaud and Cutler – are hacking away at each other and why it must end.
Jay Rogers of Local Motors breaks all the rules in automobile manufacturing: he’ll be the first in the world to print a car, live, in front of thousands. Plus, nice photos of sauteed soft-shell crabs, which I didn’t like that much as a dish (also a first for this blog!)
