I do love food…

How much do I love food, especially when away from home? I can’t think of any better time than to try local produce; it’s fresher, good for the local economy and creates fodder for stories.

Our mother had a saying when dining out; ‘don’t order anything from the menu, that you can cook at home’; which when younger I thought crazy.  Why on earth would I subject myself to eating something I had never heard of. What if I hated it?  I’d be hungry, and out of pocket.

Fast forward a few years and yes, I should have known that mum was right (always).  Isn’t maturity wonderful? Her words are stuck in my mind, when selecting dishes from menus.

I do love my food, and always choose something new and different! A favourite place for food is a fabulous seafood restaurant in Seattle USA called The Crab Pot. My Stephen had researched this restaurant and knew exactly what he wanted to order, even before we left the shores of Oz.

The Crab Pot has incredible waterfront dining views, featured on the Travel Channel ‘man vs food’, very busy and no bookings allowed.  You may have to wait for a table depending on the time of day. Just do what I did,  head to the bar and enjoy their amazing Martinis and local beers.

The Pacific Clam Bake was to ‘die for’. Do yourself a favour and visit Seattle one day, you will not be sorry.

    My daughter and I had a frappe just the other day and we were both very ill! I think having alcohol in it is much more sensible! Kills the germs!!
