AND we’re back….

Hi there. Been awhile. How’ve you been?

We took a couple days to recover from our eating frenzy in SF but we’re happy to be cooking and back on track.  I don’t have a recipe for you today but I have some lovely food pictures of the weekend we spent in the Hamptons with our great friends.  Happy Birthday Melissa!

About 20 of us rented a mansion for a Big Chill-esque weekend (I’ve never seen this movie but apparently someone dies, hence the get-together…thankfully that wasn’t the case for us but because of the storm, this house was the perfect setting for a horror film so there was the potential for a kinda “big chill” on our hands…).  We had a BBQ/Pot-Luck Thanksgiving Dinner on Friday night. Saturday night  The Clam Man of Southampton came to the house and created a good ol’ fashioned clam bake for us complete with oysters, lobsters, steamers, mussels and baked potatoes.

The best thing to do with a group of late 20 somethings/early 30 somethings (besides totally age yourself in your own blog)? Flip cup, charades, Jenga and Beatles Rock Band.  Man, I’m really setting us up for some gore.

An unreal baked potato cheese thing - who made this??? I can't remember...

  1. What a great way to spend a BDAY!! All that food was ridic. I think you forgot to mention the oysters that your amazing husband shucked!

    Best weekend ever! We ate so well! Crucial to success of the weekend: there was always something laid out on the big island in the kitchen. Leftovers, a special pre-meal snack and hot beverages kept the momentum for the group of revelers.

  3. This looks so fun! And the food looks amazing, too…
