Last week, it was brutally hot. Even here on the east end of the island, the humidity was wicked!
We have had a break in the heat, and I hope you have too!
I met my dear friend in Hampton Bays for lunch. We opted to sit in the tiny room inside, there was a wait for a table outside.
It was cooler inside, but with the door open, the flies were annoying. Can you tell I never wanted to go camping? :)
This is the Shinnecock Canal. You have to cross over this to get to the Eastern end of LI where I live. You can see the bridge in the first picture.
The restaurant is called The Canal Cafe, how clever!
I had read the reviews before I went, and some diners mentioned plastic utensils.
Umm, no. I don't like plastic, so I brought utensils for the two of us. The waitress got a kick out of that. She explained that being on the canal they were limited in their pump out, and paper products saved lots of water.
I had a shrimp sandwich and my friend had fish and chips. I know people who have had their lobster salad sandwiches at $22.00 . They said they were great! Maybe I will go for that next time, on a cooler day and sit outside.
I wanted to join Yvonne for On the Menu Monday, so keeping with a nautical theme, I bought these...
and made this.
Chicken Salad in a boat of lettuce, celery and carrots.
I roasted seasoned chicken breasts and cut it into chunks. Add a splash of oj, powdered mustard, chopped onions and celery, mayo, s and p and some parsley.
Serve it in a boat (from CTS) of lettuce, carrots, etc, and give it a pickle slice eye.
Hope you are staying cool!
Thanks for stopping by. I am also joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday, albeit, late!
