Steve at What Do I Know? cooked clam chowder from razor clams (!!!) he bought at Costco. My bodyguard raved this last week, that when he was down in Fremont California last month, Costco was the only place that had decent seafood for sale, and at prices lower than they sell the same stuff here.
Steve also took a look at how the Anchorage Daily News relies on current players in our political future for their ad revenue. More on that in another post today, about how upset so many of us are getting as the Alaska media shows its determination to keep us the premiere low-information voter state in the USA.
Back to food.
The ADN's blog, AK Root Cellar, carries a link to a great film, called Your Milk On Drugs, that gives you more reasons to question how we can keep people in congress who are either in the hands of these corporate creeps, or have to swear allegiance to them the minute they arrive.
Celtic Diva is hoping to have a fundraiser-picnic to raise grassroots money to help her team get to the Democratic Party National Convention in Denver, the last full week in August. I'm going to be involved, offering up mucho Copper River Sockeye. More coming on this soon...
Erin McKittrick and Bretwood Higman - erin and hig from Journey on the Wild Coast Blog - will be coming to Anchorage later in the summer. We're going to start working on a venue for a presentation like the one they did last winter in Anchorage. Then, their talk filled the UAA recital hall to overflow. I'm glad the fire marshall didn't show up. But let's hope that when they present their story here again, we'll find some way to have a picnic. With food. Alaska food.
Ishmael Melville, who lives in the food paradise of Alaska - Kodiak - linked to a video that could have ended up a food video. It shows a Chocolate labrador retriever jumping into the water and swimming out about 50 feet, and then diving to apparently bite the tail of what appears to be a juvenile Minke whale. If it had been an Orca, there might have been one of the kinkiest YouTubes ever....
