Crabcakes, scallops and shrimp, oh my

And that's not even mentioning the lobster.

I always feel like I have to get in a year's worth of delicious (and cheap! at least by Israeli standards) seafood every time I come to the US, and let me tell you, New England is one heck of a place to indulge that particular obsession.

Jay's sister is here for a few days with her husband and new baby, so to give my mom a break from the kitchen we did the cooking tonight. Jay went a bit crazy at the seafood counter of the supermarket but he did such an amazing job grilling it all up that all that was left over was a skewer or two of grilled shrimp. I really should write down what he seasoned it all with before he forgets because it was delicious.

Tomorrow we're off to a local rib and music festival on the top of a nearby mountain - good food, good music and good photo ops - what more do you need?

Life is good.

Have I mentioned before that I'm really loving this vacation thing? Do you think my company would keep paying me if I stayed on vacation all year long?

If you find a company that will pay you to be on vacation then do remember your old pal won't you? I'm really an excellent vacationer and I'm sure I'd be a good fit for such a gig.
