I had enough; I hereby declare summer to be over. September 21st is less than a month away; that being the official end
of summer. However, I can’t wait. I have a busy Fall schedule and need to get started now.
The new Crop of the Week is potatoes. They are officially open for picking now that summer has been declared over. These
are new potatoes, they will not store for the winter, so do not pick too many. They are best cooked right away. Saute with
our leeks or red onions and sweet peppers.
Anyway, there is lots to pick now so make hay while the sun shines.
Regarding buffets, Jamaican night is this Wednesday, Vegetarian is on Friday, and the Cajun Dinner Dance is Saturday. This
Friday is the last Vegetarian Buffet and Saturday is the last Cajun dinner. The Jamaican Grill Night will keep going through
September on Wednesday September 5th then switching to Fridays (14th ,21st , and 28th).
I spent the past week at sea on Georges Bank testing a new scallop dredge. One of the by- products of my work is scallops;
large fresh sea scallops. We will be serving these on Saturday at the Cajun Dinner dance; pan-seared in the Cajun style. They
will be cooked to order by one of our Cajunized Jamaican chefs and the supply is limited. We will also be cooking up them
Frenchy Cajun donuts they make down in New Orleans that begin with a "B" I think.
We will be open Labor Day but will not be doing the Flea Market. We will then be closed on all Mondays and Tuesdays. Hope
to see you all at least one of these nights this week. If not I am back out to sea on Sunday (actually San Francisco this
time). Same difference.
