“Summer fun is connecting with family and friends, good food and having FUN!!…Letia

A few months ago I was sweetly reminded of the seafood parties I used to give years ago and how it would be so wonderful if we could partake in one again; this time a little smaller!

I thought about it and said; “You know what…why not!” A superb idea, got planned and then held just this past weekend! The most important part of the party of 14, everyone had such pure enjoyment in eating the good food and spending time with each other! Which definitely made a great mix of food and conversations and a lot of laughter!! On Saturday we started with:

  • 6 dozen Maryland crabs, cooked in beer, crab seasonings, chili peppers with parboil bags of chorizo sausage and red potatoes!
  • Fried flounder fried in a lite cornmeal batter
  • Fried tilapia in a lite egg Cajun batter
  • Fried shrimp in a lite cornmeal batter
  • Cold penne and prawn shrimp salad; with spanish olives, red and yellow bell pepper with cherry tomatoes
  • Cold chucked corn salad with fresh lime; with specs of cilantro and avocado slices
  • Crab rangoon
  • Cheese platter with crab cheese dip, smoked gouda, brie, goat cheese, salami, mozzarella, honey, strawberries, grapes and flavored crackers.
  • Strawberry shortcake <delicious>
  • Peach Ice Tea, Beer and White Zinfandel

There was more food, more eating and then some more food! Then the next day, yes Sunday it was hot dogs, pork & beans, chips, swimming in the pool and watching SPIKE TV episodes of Bar Rescue with Jon Taffer; leaving us to wonder whether we all could be becoming bar owners! LOL!

Well, I hope this post made you hungry and thinking about the rest of your summer. Is it going well or you just haven’t had the time to even think about having a summer get together? Well maybe, just maybe I might have changed your mind! There’s a few more weeks left! If yes, I would love to hear about it! 🙂

Thanks Oni for suggesting the party! Everyone had such a good time!!!!!!! ❤

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mothers Day

Sending a big ole’  Happy Mother’s Day greeting to all mothers, mother figures and woman who have taken on the role of being a mother to someone!

It is wonderful to take a day, once a year to celebrate YOU!   Your job never ends, daily tasks seem like a walk in the park and you some how keep it all together!

Happy Mother's Day

As I reflect on being a mother also, it has been so rewarding and yet remarkable!   Something about watching out for someone else, makes you stronger!

Then there’s those memories of my Mom, Gilda – which makes me giggle inside and out!

It’s a wonderful gift to be a mother to someone who seeks your opinion, receiving calls of  “I love you” and those other calls which start off with “Ummm, I have something to tell you”!   🙂

Nevertheless, your job consists of multiple tasks and memories to fill up a whole room!  It’s so good to receive feedback, through gestures of love (great for the soul).

So enjoy your day and take a moment to take it all in!

Happy Mother’s Day!!!!

Ps.. and it’s not too late to get some flowers for Mom!  You still have time!

Yes, you can do the Black Friday shopping sales and the football game tonight is going to be great! Here’s a day we spend with family and friends, all the traditions set in place.

I LOVE this day! Here I am this morning walking Manolo and the smell of cooking is in the air from the houses with their doors cracked open!

The Macy’s Thanksgiving parade is going to start in a few hours and I will be serving dinners around 2 pm today!

The tone is set, I have a feel good attitude…. all with the anticipation of knowing my belly will filled later on! 🙂

Wishing everyone a wonderful Happy Thanksgiving!

Letia
