Tag Team Easter Dinner

Easter Dinner really was a team effort.  Leon did the crab legs.  Thirteen pounds in a turkey fryer with Old Bay.  Now how could they have been any better???  Love Old Bay.  WyoNella fixed roasted potatoes…garlic, salt and pepper and olive oil.  Yummy.  I made the spinach/red onion/ mandarin orange salad with poppy seed dressing.  And I made steamers.



5 lbs clams

2 cloves garlic minced

1 small onion chopped

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 stick butter

2 Tbsp chopped fresh tarragon

1.5 litter bottle of white wine

Cook garlic and onion in oil in large stock pot.  Add wine and bring to boil.  Add clams.  Cover and cook approx 10 min or until clams open.  Discard any that aren’t open.  Remove clams to large bowl.  Add butter and  tarragon to broth and heat until butter melted.  Pour over clams and enjoy with lots of crusty bread to dip in broth.


And because it was spring…kinda…made a cucumber salad.  Recipe is from Randy.  Thank you….thank you…thank you.


1 thinly sliced English cucumber

1 cup white rice wine vinegar

1/2 cup water

4 Tbsp sugar

dash of salt

1/2-1 tsp wasabi powder

Combine dressing ingredients and add cukes.  Place in refrigerator and let flavors marry…blend…meld.


It was a wonderful dinner and not much left.  Oh….and check out my Easter present.  I have never been much of an apron wearer, but got in the habit.  So WyoNella decided I needed my own to take home.
