This was the question that was asked by my mother every day when we spoke. We both enjoyed talking about food.
She passed away in 2006. I miss someone asking that question.
So this is where I will tell whomever what I am making for dinner.
I have a couple of food blogs that I follow. One of my favorites is the Proud Italian Cook. Whenever I see the email notification in my mailbox of a new post I know my eyes will be treated to delightful and very delicious looking photos. The most recent post was Easy Clambake on the Grill.
I had to try it. The shrimp were on sale this week and so were the clams. Once the prep was finished the foil packets were ready for the grill. They were on the grill about 15 minutes when Chris popped his head in with the news that we had run out of propane. Yeah, it was low but thought we might have enough for one more night. So we popped packets on a cookie sheet and put them in the oven. I had been baking cookies so it took no time to heat it up to 450˚. Not sure if that was the right temp but I was taking a guess. They took longer than the time on the recipe. We checked twice to see if the clams were opened. Finally, they opened and we enjoyed a delicious dinner. I used Old Bay spice for seasoning. The shrimp was fantastic. Still too early here for the corn but we will try this again in a couple of weeks when the local corn is on sale.
The recipe is the perfect amount for 2 people. I could put the recipe here but I think you should check out the Proud Italian Cook blog. You will not be disappointed.
