    I've gotten it cheap. Real cheap. But you guys have to show me what I'm doing wrong in my own backyard.

    On another note, I still remember the week in 1970 when my dad came home with six bushels of scallops. He also brought me a present. A shucking knife. We had fried scallops, baked scallops, grilled scallops, scallop casserole, scallop omelets, scallop pie, scallop stew. By the time those things were gone, I wouldn't look at a scallop for years.

    By the way - a 3 1/2 puonder, baked stuffed, goes for around $65.00 in most restaurants here. Therefore, I stuff my own. About $8.00 - $9.00 a pound retail for that size.

    Scallops - yummmmm. This one will probably p*** you of Ken. That same fish plant - it was had three types of fishing vessels in the summer months that we were there. Swordfish, redfish, and scallops. As kids we were probably annoying as heck and most definitely in the way of the guys working there. They would give us burlad bags with either swordfish swords or full of scallops just to get rid of us. Sure wish I could bother somebody like that today.

    The best scallops I've ever had were in the PNW. The difference between fresh and frozen is incredible. They don't even taste like the same piece of monkey.

    Cape Cod. Best scallops in the world. So, what's the PNW? Pacific Northwest? That's Dungeness Crab Country!

    I was at some place out east (don't remember) for my first soft shelled crab. Most disgusting thing I've ever seen. "How do you catch these?" I asked. "We toss a line over the side with a piece of beef tied to it." "I hate to tell you this but you were using the best part for bait." Nasty looking stuff.

    Then there is the "mustard". Yeah right. Do I look that stupid? Don't answer that. Someone ordered a soft shell crab sandwich. Okay, I thought. I might be able to do that. Then they brought it out and it's legs were sticking out of the bread. My dinner that night was a pitcher of beer.

    I'd like to thank everyone for joining us this evening at Faster's Anonymous. In case you haven't noticed yet we have a nice buffet set up. Yes, LeaveThisLifeGuy?

    I once went seven minutes without eating.

    (scattered applause).

    That's great, Guy. We'll help you break that habit so you have a sandwich in hand all the time.

    Can I have one in the wilderness, too?

    (from the back of the room) Two or three if you want.

    They are yours. All of them. Lay out the newspaper. Take the little wooden mallet and BAM! BAM! BAM! Just watch the juice fly all over the room.

    Finally. A forum with people who are as warped as I am. Yes, I am home.

    whatever that cream cheese log-lookin roll is, I must have it. All today, things I'd never eat sound amazing! Just goes to show how spoiled I've become with food. Dunno if I'll make it ten, don't even know if I'll make it to bed tonight without eatin, but it certainly gives me a newfound respect for food, and just how psychologically dependent I am on it. I really am not hungry at all, but have terrible, terrible cravings. Watched a movie, no cravings, no hunger. Got home and the lady left for some business, cravings got terrible. All psychological. I'll beat it. But I might cry a little.
