Option #2 would be a good choice. You could very easily incorporate seafood in this deal.
Don’t overlook dried salted cod fish, can make many a fine meal and appetizers with this ingreadiant, we even have it for breakfast up here.
Nothing much better than a Yankee pot roast or Red Flannel Hash.
Baked Beans goes with most anything. Of course there is always Yankee style corn bread. An old favorite of mine is Finnean Haddie, harder than hens teeth to find now though. Bad Thunder storm got to shut down for now. Chow Jim
