The Side Trek – Forking Around Thoughts
As Rosh Hashanah dawns. Summer sun sets on Middle Pond. Can only hope for a sweeter year.
Last barbecue of the summer. And. It was delish. mAdBen joined for a conflagration of lamb chops, skewered veggies and roasted potatoes.
Dr. Husband the awesome grill man. Eat your heart out Joey3Sticks.
Speaking of which. Miley Cyrus’ rendition of Maneater sizzles.
Had a hankering for calamari. Headed out East to The Lobster Roll aka Lunch on the Montauk Highway. 30 people on line for take-out. Outside seating closed on a rainy day. So. Continued to The Clam Bar in Napeague. No waiting. Ordered fried calamari plus fish & chips. Delish.
Took our lunch to an old haunt. Asparagus Beach in Amagansett. Dr. Husband was a regular back in the 1960’s-70’s when the beautiful young set socialized on the sand standing up. Thus the nickname.
It’s really Atlantic Avenue Beach, but no one ever called it that. Anyway. It was pretty empty. And. There are signs about staying at least six feet apart. Quite the ironic twist.
The North Fork seems to have two fiercely opposing cinnamon sugar apple cider donut camps. We did our own taste test.
Harbes donuts have a more cake-like consistency with a darker dough.
Wickham’s are so wonderfully greasy that the paper bag is stained.
Dr. Husband is a Harbes fan. While Mrs. Trek is decidedly team Wickham.
