For breakfast today, @meganfaye made a Dutch baby.  I ate my piece with butter, maple syrup & powdered sugar. Really good. #capecod #breakfast #baby

Tonight for dinner I made seared, local, wild stripped bass with tabouleh & tomato fondue. @meganfaye actually made the tabouleh; it was delicious. #capecod #local #seasonal #seafood #summer #food

Didn’t catch any black sea bass today but caught a lot of these porgies aka scup. They are still good eating. Plenty of fish for dinner tonight. #capecod #fishing #summer #fishingface

Of course I ordered lobster twice in one day. Had to get the whole lobster. I ate it with my hands. It was filled with roe too. Yum.  #capecod #summer #dinner #seafood #lobster #food  (at The Summer Shanty)

Just eating some steamers. Wash, dunk, eat, repeat.  One of my favorite Cape Cod summer activities. #capecod #summer #seafood #food  (at The Summer Shanty)
