Weeknight supper delight: September 2012

IT'S A SHRIMP BOIL!  Aka, total hot mess of delicious food boiled and piled on newspaper for us pigs to dig in and eat.  I had never heard of such a thing before, but, oh man, SO cool.

Okay, so this isn't technically a week'night' supper delight, it's definitely more a weekend thang.  But, I wanted to share some pics from my week on the water, and this dinner was SO fun and festive!  Jared's dad actually owns the house that we stayed in (how did this girl get so lucky huh?) and came down to stay the last weekend we were there.  We trekked to the neighbors for a bday bash, where freshly caught seafood and veggies were to be had! 

Basically, you throw any fish, meats, and veggies in a big pot to boil, spread them out on a large table when cooked, and sprinkle with seasoning.  That's it!

Here's Jared and I and miss Tootie basking in some good wine and the remainder of the sunset.

Ah........ twas a good day.



  1. So. Much. Fun!!!!

    I love how you just ate off newspaper. And that lake... wow! So beautiful!

    P.S. You are making me hungry... at least it is almost lunchtime ;)

  2. I had never heard of such a thing, either, but I can see it's pretty cool! All the food looks delicious! :)

  3. eegad! that looks so amazing! the view + the food, I am jealous. have you ever been to the crab pot in seattle? they do a similar sort of thing, but nothing that would beat a back porch on the water like that! gah. so very jealous. haha.

  4. Wow that's so beautiful- the scenery and the food!

  5. Oh my gosh..YUM. This is an awesome idea! And perfect for Fall! I might have to copy you someday. And just wanted to tell you that you have the cutest blog! I love your ideas!

  6. ring the article, and more importantly, your personal experienceMindfully using our emotions as data about our inner state and knowing when it’s better to de-escalate by taking a time out are great tools. Appreciate you reading and sharing your story, since I can certainly relate and I think others can too
