Citrus Shrimp ‘n Pico Salad

I had several leftovers that inspired my lunch meal.  Every once in a while I get a wild hair and just need a new flavor.  Mike had brought home some Royal Red Shrimp — they are a local gulf shrimp treat.  Royal Reds taste like a combo of shrimp and lobster–I think they are AMAZING!…

Green Juice Baby … Yeah!

  My Go-Go Green Juice  I adapted my Green Juice from Joe’s Reboot Mean Green Juice.  I used his original recipe as a jumping off point for my own.  I really enjoyed watching his journey.  I even thought about doing a juice fast, but I just crave meat too much, and, sadly, I need protien…

Chillin in the rain.

All my company has left the beach … as I sit typing the rain has arrived in full thunderstorm force.  I love listening to the sound of the rain and the waves crashing on the beach.  The gulf has little surf except in stormy weather.  I live two blocks from the beach and get to…

It’s busy @ the beach

Life has been one more blur since mid-February. I’ve been from Bham to Florida. To Bham to Two spots in Louisiana, then back to Bham. Followed by a swift return to Florida. I am in the middle of our spring break family/friend shuffle at the beach. I’m loving life and all the folks in it.…

Blowin’ Raspberries at Cha

😜😜😜😜😜 Yeah, You read and saw that right.  I am blowing raspberries and making special noises with my mouth towards snippy people.  Understand, I am only makin’ faces at you if you are a person who feels the need to police the actions of others.  I would really like to slap you senseless.  Seriously–it is…

Happy 26th Anniversary To Me!!

I wrote this the day after my anniversary, February 20th of 2014.  Somehow, I forgot to post this.  I guess I was lost in my four days of bliss with my beloved and then I dashed off to Louisiana to visit family and friends.  I have been lost in life.  Enjoying the people I love.…

Sunny Day!!

I went out for a ride, looking for my neighbors … we took a short ride together yesterday … hoped to catch up with them today.  I had a UPS delivery and then a visit from the Jehovah’s Witness folks that kept delaying my getting out the door.  I was sure I missed them.  So,…

Pumpkin & Bacon Soup

Originally posted on Things My Belly Likes:
and I used to think soups were boring..shame on me! Pumpkins are strange beasts in the Caribbean. Forget the cute, round, orange version so beloved by kiddies on Halloween. The Caribbean ones are oblong, green and stripey. Oblong, see?! Once you get past that, they’re pretty much the…
