Thank you Scotties. We used to do the gulf thing, but haven't done it for several years, and I really don't want to see it after the big spill. Your mom is one lucky lady to have that access. Good chicken, beef, pork, and freshwater fish are easy enough, but the ocean critters are hard to get fresh. I've been considering a trip to the eastern seaboard just to eat seafood this Autumn.

So - Mo's is a family tradition...I think for everyone in the state. You can buy the concentrate fresh frozen in many grocery stores all over. Amazing? No, not really. People buy it like crazy. Note the comments below re lamb.

PS: add salad shrimp to the chowder and you have Slumgullion. Add Dungeness crab and you have heaven in a bowl. Much as I love Salmon in most of its forms, for me it's all about Halibut and Dungeness Crab.

Oh, and by the way...here's a link to Mo's recipe:

http://www.food.com/recipe/mos-clam-chowder-270792

Can't get lamb here either, except in the largest butcher shops. I asked a guy in the smaller place close to where I live and he said they don't carry it cause people don't buy it and to keep it on hand for an occasional purchase was so expensive for him, he couldn't afford to do it. There are neighborhoods here and there with an ethnic population of the right mix that it will sell more regularly, and I guess that's what it takes. I think it's a damn shame, lamb is a favorite of mine. Guess who's the only one in the house that will eat it. Yup.

Also Scotties22, if you're not up to making your own chowder...just order it online...or the tuna! Note the recipe section on her website as well. Pretty good Cioppino recipe.

But here's where to order the chowder. God bless the Internet.

Take off set for first thing in the morning.
Had a poop storm of a day that culminated with my truck not starting. Tracked down a badly worn grounding strap but it was 10pm by the time I got it repaired.
I will never get my shuriken back at this rate. Rolling Eyes

Take off scheduled for this afternoon.

BH, I've tried to concentrate and making my own. Both come out okay. There is just something about sitting there with the garage door rolled up eating a huge cannon ball of soup and watching people pass....makes it too great to try to make at home.

We like the places they have at both the Taft Dock (So. Lincoln City) and Devil's Punchbowl just North of Beverly Beach. The Taft one is good cause you can fish for crab off the dock and if it's 'on' you can fill a big pot with water (indulge in the appropriate amount of bickering regarding the proper mix of fresh to salt water for cooking) and get a driftwood fire going and cook 'em there on the beach (note: ALL beaches are public in Oregon, and beach access cannot be blocked by private construction) and if the fishing isn't so hot, there's Mo's.

Ahhhh, beach cooked crab, a baguette with fresh Brie and a bottle of ice cold beer. That spells summer to me.

Well came to view and see what was going on and ended up drooling so bad my pipe gurgles like the one for bubbles. Have to try that chowder soon. Have some cans of clams on the shelf.

Grill/smoking is one of my enjoyments. I like to pick up those whole pork loins on sale and process them in this: http://www.bbqaddicts.com/grills-smokers/char-griller-grills/cg013.php It can really put out the smoke and the temp with the attached firebox stays low.

I used various marinades but lately just salt it the day before and then wipe of the salt residue. I have apple trees and use that exclusively. It is a sublime smoke. I don't smoke it like I would a shoulder. I smoke and either remove to later finish in the oven or leave it until it would normally be done. It isn't for meal fare as much as cold sandwiches. I slice it paper thin and mound it on a nice piece of buttered bread or roll. Ends up being cheaper than lunch meat and vastly superior. I used to do them on a Weber but it finally just fell apart and I got this.

The best ever for me is Lake Trout. There were any number of fish stores that sold lake produce. They are hard to find these days. Lake trout is white meat but almost as large as smaller salmon -- very delicate. Again a simple salt rub instead of adding flavor. It is so delicate and heavenly with just a mild, fruit wood smoke.

I too love lamb and chops on the grill are sublime. The mention of cost is right on but meat prices in general have soared. Instead of tasty meats we get ethanol for the cars. One of the last slaughter companies around in Chicago specializes in lamb and there are some tasty bits when one splurges a bit. But, even the secondary cuts are pretty pricey.

So, tobacco and now food and grilling. What are you sinners going to lead me astray on next. Wines? LOL

Don't get me started on wine. We are finishing the basement this year and this was the first thing that was finished.
Completely wrapped in moisture barrier, cooled and humidified and that is an exterior door on it. It is it's own little micro-climate inside our house. Needless to say my husband is a little anal about his wine.....and cigars.





The second picture shows our collection of Sam Adams Utopias.......yummy. We've opened one bottle. It's beer, but really it's like congac. Good stuff.

Here's the humidor....

Both 'fixtures' look stellar.

Is the Sam Adams brew something like Barleywine? Portland is a major brewing hot spot and the region in general is strong in that regard. A large number of brewers from large to the local craft brewers do one or more batches of Barleywine every year. Heady stuff. I usually go for the crisp IPA's in the Summer (or a good ol' Coors longneck) and in the Winter it's Imperial Ale, the stronger the better. It's amazing how the flavors change as the Imperial changes temperature down the bottle.

But the converted antique humidor cabinet has me thinking hard. We have an old curved glass curio cabinet about the same size that would make a great one. Hmmm.

BTW: I think your blade is due in today!


And another BTW for your hubby. Show him these or just buy them for Father's Day...stainless steel 'corn forks' the are REALLY sharp and make the absolutely perfect cigar nubber. And at a dozen for under ten bucks ya just can't beat 'em!

http://www.leevalley.com/US/garden/page.aspx?p=57159&cat=2,40733,47775,57159

Also great handouts for his next cigar party!

It's not like Barleywine at all. It's really wierd stuff. It is beer, techincally. But, it is thick and syrupy and has all the characteristics of a good Brandy or Congac. They brew it with a special champaigne yeast and the alcohol content is through the roof. If you ever run across a bottle you should try it (mind you they run $150 in the store if you are lucky enought to find one when it releases every two years). Every once in a while I will find a restuarant that has a bottle on the shelf (but again, we are talking crazy expensive places that like to charge a mint to eat there).

A funny thing happened to me today.
I got home from a rough day at work to find three suspicious packages on my doorstep.

At this point I am going to assume it is friendly fire and hunker down....

It appears that I am in the same boat. Here on the left coast we call it "duck and cover." That's what I am going to do. affraid
