Tonight we plan to have steamers, lobsters, corn and tomatoes again.
The disaster was a 17 pound aged country ham from Benton's. I wanted a proscuito type ham, which this was not. It required soaking for 24 hours i n water, changing it every 4 hours. The pig skin came off but the ham, which was supposed to be fried in 1/4" steaks was salty beyond belief. I discarded the whole mess. $80 down the drain. Their website gave me no information to know I should have ordered the aged ham instead of the aged country ham. Oh well.
I brought a good supply of wines to enjoy with the seafood and steaks.
Nighttime has us going to one of several places that serve delicious house-made ice cream with hot fudge.
Days at the beach in perfect weather add to the fun. Hannah and Thanny have a ball getting tossed in the waves at Nauset beach. My knees can't take the torque so I stay in the shallows and watch.
