Seafood Saturday

13 Feb

 

According to my mother, when I was a toddler I loved shrimp. Loved them to the point of eating an entire popcorn bowl of them while spending the afternoon with my dad on the couch. Today, I can’t really picture myself doing that. I don’t hate shrimp, but I wouldn’t sit with a bowl of them. A few as an appetizer, sure. I go no further.  Then, there is salmon. I didn’t start eating salmon until about 2 years ago. I found a great pre-marinated kind at Publix. They’re  fresh filets, not frozen, and are pre-marinated with a bourbon sauce. They are delicious cooked in the oven and served with rice and asparagus. Yummy. But, even salmon I can only stomach once in a blue moon. It can be too fishy for me.

 

So… you’re wondering where I’m going with this. {I do have a point, I swear} My affinity for seafood is not very strong. Like I said before, I can stomach it … but I wouldn’t eat it every night. Tonight, however, I’m in a full-on seafood mood. We’re having mussels in a garlic/white wine sauce. Mmm, the joy. I’m going to serve them with a ton of french bread {I can’t get enough bread} and we’ll probably snack on some Port Salut and dry salami … oh gosh, and don’t forget the wine!

 

I’ll try to get some pictures up for you later tonight! Hope you are all having a peaceful and restful weekend & enjoying the snow {Seeing as how 48 states have snow right now, I’m betting on the chance YOU have snow!} … Chat again soon, friends!

    Actually all 50 have at some point this week, bc Hawaii has some really tall mountains that have snow on the tip-top. Hope you enjoyed my message haha I was a little over-excited. To the point where we when we got to the ice skating rink and were turning around to go home (long story), I begged to get out of the car to play in the snow, was given permission to do so but just for a second and to stay close, I bolted out (forgetting to shut the door) and took off across the parking lot to my other Southern sisters who were as enchanted as I was. haha
