When I was growing up we always had a “fancy” dinner mid Sunday afternoon. Normally it was some sort of roast with mashed potatoes, gravy and two vegetables. It really wasn’t much different from any other nights dinner-except for that extra vegetable.
Yesterday we had our Sunday mid afternoon dinner at Woodman’s in Essex. For a Sunday in July it wasn’t crowded at all. The Husband and I split the “down river” plate which consisted of clams, scallops, fish and shrimp. H & N split a baby shrimp plate. Everything was delicious. I guess the French fries and onion rings were the two vegetables.
If you find yourself hungry in Essex be sure to stop at Woodman’s. They say that is where the fried clam was invented and they really do them well.
