Shrimp three ways –

#1. Marinate shrimp in lemon, olive oil and Old Bay Seasoning, for a couple hours. Soak wood skewers in water. Thread the shrimp and cook on the grill…

Dinner night one was grilled shrimp and cooked carrots and fresh sliced tomatoes.

#2. Salad – Panzanella salad topped with shrimp. Bread and tomato salad with cucumbers and onions and dressed with oil and vinegar and topped with shrimp.

#3. Shrimp Taco for dinner – I took the cocktail sauce and mixed in some sour cream and salsa and fresh cilantro. I used fresh corn tortillas heated up in a fry pan and chopped up shrimp and dressed with the sour cream mixture…

Meatless Monday

My favorite place to buy tomatoes is David’s Produce.IMG_1103.JPG

It has been around a very long time. Tomatoes are always the BEST! But they also have fresh butter beans and Lady Peas. Butter Bean are just lima beans basically. Oh and fresh Black eyed peas. They are all so yummy.IMG_1110

They have fresh eggs and butter too. All kind of veggies, carrots, squash, cabbage, vidalia onions, (sweet onions from Vidalia GA). IMG_1114.JPG

All kinds of hot sauces! They also have my favorite thing!

Good Deeds

Good deeds still exist. I went to the Home Depot to pick up some manure and soil for my garden. Good deed #1 – as I am picking up 50lb bags of manure, I had one in the cart, this man walks up and asks how many I am going to need, just one more, he picks it up and puts it in my cart.

Then, I get to my car, now I have 5 bags of soil, manure and compost. I put down paper in my back seat. I have a VWBeetle convertible. The top was down and I started loading the soil in my car. This young guy comes up and says “let me help you before I head home”. He helped my so much! Then he takes my cart and returns it to the cart corral. He didn’t expect anything from it, just being a super nice guy.

I hope this makes you feel better, it made me so happy!
