|Moms Clams Casino|
We decided against gifts, but of course ended up getting each other a few small things. I got mom some yoga paraphernalia and she got me cash!! Each bit of cash was with a letter with it's designated country (all the places I'm going this year)! It was a slow, relaxing morning - just chatting and sipping coffee. Then we headed to the movies and saw Ben Stillers', "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"....it was beautiful! The acting, the filming, the story, the *soundtrack*....it simply made you feel good all-over.
And as if that wasn't enough, we came home and mom cooked up a fresh-from-the-sea feast! My mom makes the BEST clams casino ever. You use big clams (we pulled these out of the mud at my dads "secret spot") and chop chop chop [or better yet use the food processor!].
-celery, onion, pepper
Season: fresh herbs, garlic
Bake in the oven on 375 til they're done. Boom. So good. Top with lots of fresh lemon juice and enjoy.
I'm feeling happy, healthy and well-fed and I'm at the airport now headed to Key West....!
