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.
