What's for dinner . . .

After reading my post yesterday
you probably have guessed I'll be eating clams for dinner for a while!

After some online research I figured out how to prepare (aka safely kill them so as not to make oneself sick) the live clams.
Basically - I gave the clams a good scrub, a soaking, and then bath - over hot coals. Sounds like a Japanese onsen, ne?
Tonight I dined on clam fettuccine with fresh herbs from my "garden", tomatoes and onions.
I enjoyed this with some Grapetiser - a sparkling beverage I discovered in South Africa - and can now find in my local Kaldi's import food store. It was a fun way to celebrate tomorrow's big day!
