I was reading a recipe in the New York Times magazine today for fried razor clams, and it made me hungry. I don't know the difference between a razor clam or any other kind of clam--I just know that it's been a long time since I've had lovely hot fresh fried clams. Not since I moved from northern climes, at the very least. So I got ambitious, and the recipe seemed simple enough, and visions of frying my own damn clams were dancing in my head. Then I got to this part:

"Rinse the clams thoroughly, then shuck and clean them. (For help, go to www.razorclams.com.)"

First, the name "www.razorclams.com" is perhaps the most awesome url on the entire interbunny. And to think, they just lucked into it. Second, now that I've seen what goes into cleaning razor clams (or rather, what goes out of razor clams in the process of being cleaned) I'm pretty sure it won't be happening en mi casa any time soon.

Ever seen a crystalline style? Well, have ya? (Picture No. 5)

Thanks Lauri!
That's a great diet aid! Those pictures have made me lose my appetite. If I get hungry again I'll go back for another dose.

Re: Thanks Lauri!
Yeepers. That's what those pictures gave me.

I hope you survived the Great Evacuation of September following so closely on the Great Evacuation of August (any more house guests?).

I will be needing an avocado margarita this Saturday. Are you available?

Re: Thanks Lauri!
Give me a call about the margarita...i'm up for one...or two or more. In keeping with your appetizing food theme...here's a link for you. It made me laugh anyway.

Tried to send this message via e-mail but it bounced back. I must have an old address. Sorry to get off topic...this is about Hurricane Katrina.

here's a link to a guy who I think tells the story like I've been hearing it.


Things are still bad over there. I feel so sorry for so many people. Family and friends.

That looks suspiciously similar to some of the surgeries we do at my vet. YUM!
