Working my way through some Indian recipes from a not very good book - an experiment in seeing what works and what doesn't. The night before last I turned my kitchen into a post-hurricane site with a

Ta. I must give this a try.

Thank you thank you. But doesn't everyone look better wearing a bath mat?

No grilling options this Memorial Day (and also, I can't drink), so I tried to make the best of things with a crawfish boil and some top neck clams from Aquabest, first-of-the-season squash, seen here in a chilled soup, and salad with balcony lettuce and Greenmarket tomatoes and (also first-of-the-season) cukes.

There was some excitement when the bottom fell out of the paper bag holding the crawfish, and they fell onto the kitchen floor and started wandering around. I yelled, the cat bit H in the leg, and the next five minutes were spent with me running back and forth to corral the increasingly agitated cat into one of the bedrooms, grab the antibiotic cream and the anti-itch spray for H's leg, and scoop the mudbugs into a bowl and then into the sink. Did I mention I also can't drink?

Anyway, everything came out pretty good, although the crawfish didn't take on much of the Old Bay flavor (I have no actual boil mix, unfortunately).

Chicken thighs roasted in the Cuisinart. Cabbage wedges roasted next to the chicken thighs. And one of the better potato salads I've made in the last couple of attempts - with russets!

A deconstructed version of stuffed grape leaves, Egyptian-style: ground lamb, brined grape leaves from our garden, tomatoes, rice, onion, lemon juice, and seasonings (including homemade dukkah), baked in the Le Creuset. Abundant garden berries for dessert.

You two continue to amaze and impress me.    Stuffing grape leaves is one thing; growing and brining them puts you on a different planet.

You should be impressed with N.  She's the gardener--I'm just the blueberry picker. 😉

Let us know if you ever find yourself down East Bay way, and we'll give you a tour.
