Island living wouldn't be complete without seafood -- clams, fish, shrimp, crab, & scallops. Last night it was fried fresh blue fish...a little salt & pepper sprinkled on before coating it with corn meal and laying it in the skillet. Country fried potatoes (with chopped onions, of course) and steamed vegetables rounded out the meal. Oh yes, also a glass of white wine...and ice cream & fresh strawberries for dessert!
I invited Amy, David, & Lachlan over to share the meal and conversation (they include me in their meals often), and that made it all the better.
As my grandfather said at almost every meal...We eat good in America! Lachlan sometimes changes it to We eat good on Ocracoke! I couldn't agree more.
