Lots of Flounder are beginning to show up along most passes on outgoing tides. Curley tail Gulp along with shrimp has been the ticket bounced along the bottom. Come get you some before they move.

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE

Here at the lodge we still use many of the original recipes that Martha Shaughnessy (the boy’s mother) started here over 30 years ago. We serve her special version of prime rib at least once a week.  It is probably the most popular of all of our kitchen goodies. Well………….maybe Gumbo and Bread pudding are right up there with it. Check it out and serve it to your friends or give me a call and Marsha and I will bring some wine and join you. Enjoy

MARTHA’S RIBEYE ROAST

  • 1 – Whole  Ribeye roast without ribs
  • 2 – Table spoons of flour
  • Salt to taste
  • Lots of cracker pepper

Let meat sit out until it reaches room temperature. Preheat oven to 500 degrees (no less). Liberally sprinkle salt, pepper and flour on fat side of the meat. Place in a large pan with 1 to 2 inches of sides, fat side up. Cook in preheated oven 5 minutes per pound and then turn off oven. DO NOT open door for 2 hours. Meat will be rare in the center and more done on the ends. Slice into steaks and serve hot with carrots, creamed potatoes. A crisp Caesar salad is always good with this meal.

Let us know how you liked it.


My thought – “Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God”.

Have a GREAT week and remember “Ya shoulda been here Yesterday”
