Paella in the Boatyard
OK, the author of this blog, pictured above, had a milestone birthday on May 31, (and Harold's birthday was June 1) so we had a stellar party with the most excellent paella cooked by Davis Griffith of Marblehead. We also had steamed clams dug the day before by Harold and Alden, and homemade baked beans and ham supplied by Carol Fulleton (whose secret recipe is sought-after by the finest Marblehead cooks according to a recent story in the Dawn Bucket column in the Marblehead Reporter). There was also corn bread, roasted vegetables, chicken wings (thank you Lily from California!) and many other delicious things to eat. It was a great party and people traveled from Chicago, Ct (thanks Wendy, David and Jo!) and everyone made a great effort to come while likely giving up other Memorial Day plans so it was a great day and all of the friends and family who came made it a very memorable one. Thank you Pam, Deb, Mom, Dad, and Harold for the kayak!! I love it. Oh, and Deb and Michel outdid themselves with the most awesome cakes. All we needed was a sudden microburst and a green sky and it would have felt like Harold's 40th...a few years ago...if only I could turn back the clock! Thank you, Wendy Upton, for the photos!
