Seafood Feast from the Gulf to the table

Yesterday my parents in law and son myself took a trip to Galveston Beach for a day in the sun and relaxation. There is a little market off the port pear called Katie's Seafood Market and I just love it. I shop there every time we go to Galveston and buy fresh flounder and shrimp or other fish. Yesterday we grilled the flounder and some of the shrimp, we made shrimp coctail with the rest of the shrimp. Check out meals for two for the recipes. Yumm yumm.

A perfect break

Once in a while you get blessed with a perfect break. The last 7 days were amazing. With this schedule of days or weeks away from home sometimes the home coming is sweet and sometimes it is not as smooth as one would hope. I wrote many times about the preparations that go into Mr. Right coming home in “He is coming home!!!”, I also wrote about the struggle to find a balance in “Folks we are experiencing turbulence due to colliding fronts” and in “Unclear try a different freq.”.  But what does it take to have a perfect break, what is the formula for a perfect week?
