A favorite summer tradition of mine is the clam bake—which doesn’t involve baking, but a labor-intensive process where you dig a hole in the sand, get a fire roaring, then douse it with salt water to steam seafood and seaweed on the piping-hot rocks. Since most of us can’t just light up anywhere we darn well please, this recipe captures that breezy, briny spirit from the convenience of the stove. The directions look complicated, but they’re really meant to be more of a loose guide than a must-do—the most important thing is to throw in the things that need to cook longest first.
#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.
