seafood weekend with the Eides

oyster lover's table

If it wasn't for salmon, I think that I would have gone hungry this past weekend. The Eide family pride themselves on their love of the culinary bounty of the sea. Labor Day weekend was a seafood indulgence extravaganza: oysters, crab, mussels, clams, shrimp and salmon. For a couple of old Norwegian siblings, it was oysters for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Now, I love the sea as a setting for recreation (sailing), but my tastes for it's produce ends with salmon and maybe a little crab and clam. We spent the weekend at the Cain Lake cabin. Saturday night we got grimey at the Skagit Speedway; a different experience for an old salt like me. It was a lot of fun, especially the final race which went through several restarts because of endless crashes. Bjorn and Jenny joined us for much of the weekend, and Anna and the girls came by on Sunday. We wrapped up our weekend with a visit with my mom and a trip to the outlet mall for back to school shopping.
