Happy Hanukkah Everyone

We lit candles, and I gave my kids their gifts, an Old Bay wool pom cap for Nat, and an Old Bay bow tie for Charlie.

They were absolutely thrilled.

If you don’t understand why my kids were positively thrilled to receive these gifts, you don’t understand Maryland.

Old Bay a spice mix developed for seafood, but it is really good on everything. (I’ve had Old Bay ice cream, and it was not bad)

It is the unofficial elixir and talisman of all things Maryland.

The recipe is fairly simple: salt, celery seeds, paprika, black pepper, cayenne, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and magic.
