Our penultimate vacation dinner was one of multiple pastas and salads. Fresh clam pasta about which Drew said “Am I overdoing it with the clams this week?” And everyone replied “No!” Pasta with the Drews’ home-jarred sauce (with or without sausages) and the Drews’ pesto on the side, in case you didn’t have enough pasta-topping options.

Somebody made delicious garlic bread, and I don’t know who it was.

My mom made two salads, a sweet and a salty. The sweet salad had golden raisins, blueberries, feta and orange. The salty salad had arugula, tomatoes and lemon zest.

Also there was a hurricane.

In other tumultuous news, The Steady Table is moving in a week and a half. After 14 years as New York City residents, we’re moving on—eeek!

More on this later, but just so you know, it might be a while till I post again. We’re only giving ourselves 9 days to pack up.
