At U-district farmers market, this cheerful, personable and warm hearted lady working the Hama Hama stand and I were chatting about their excellent quality of oysters. She recommended clams this week and they carried 2 kinds of clams, savory and manila. I bought both.
It was BEAUTIFUL today. It was around 50 degrees and sunny. Yes, SUNNY in Seattle. I am happy that I was able to have a relaxing Sunday. So, what I need is an easy but delicious meal on this relaxed early Sunday evening.
Combination of savory and manila clams, about 2lb.
Half of mayor lemon, peeled and sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
Pinch of sea salt
Little bit of white wine
I put the above in my favorite Staub cast iron pot and put a lid on and left alone for about 10 min over medium low heat.
Sliced baguette (from Tall Grass Bakery) toasted in a Turk iron frying pan to accompany that.
There, all I need is to sit down and enjoy this simple and relaxed dish with Archie. I even have a cherry pie from Janeli’s Alki Pie Company in the oven right now.
I can’t ask for a better Sunday night than this. I hope you all had a wonderful Sunday.
