Featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives...

Well, up early on Sunday Morning and after a hearty breakfast headed over to Dad's for some much anticipated gardening. After weeding and rototilling the Tomatoes, Master Gardener Dad and willing Student Mary Beth were plotting out which crops to plant next now the the Radishes were done. I moved on to picking the first of the seasons' Green Beans. Sure the work was hard and hot, sweat dripping off my brow, dirt on my knees and under my fingernails...but oh so fulfilling and satisfying. Later that evening as the sun was setting, I took that first sip of my refreshing Martini...shaken not stirred... reflecting back on the work of the day, I couldn't help feeling that my Mom was looking down and thinking...' ALRIGHT...WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH JEFF!?' ' be continued...(check out the garden photos on our Barking Dog Cafe Facebook page)

And as always, we have our award-winning Tucker's Nantucket Clam Chowder (Jeff's recipe, Jeff preparing it...enough said)
