Two of my friends have birthdays in February and since it's almost Mardi Gras time, we thought we'd celebrate. HeRoos and I tried a new recipe recommended by Sandi.
Louisiana Shrimp Boil: Corn on the cob, onions, red potatoes, shrimp, sausage, grilled chicken. Everything turned out OK except for the potatoes. I overcooked them.
The fun part of this meal is that you eat it with your fingers- no utensils & one little plate for the sauce. The gang was a little hesitant at first but we all ended up digging in. We just threw everything on the table cloth and tossed it after. Easy clean up
This is what made the meal yummy and fattening. Lori whipped up a large batch for us. It tastes very similar to fry sauce.
HeRoos and I in the kitchen trying to be chefs. haha
We made Lime Ricky's: Grenadine, lime, & Fresca. S brought very tasty cupcakes to tempt us with.
Does BM look excited or what? He is such a serious boy but he enjoyed chewing on a lime and getting attention from the ladies.
Coconut Dream Cake. Get your minds out of the gutter people. ;)
Happy Birthday C & L and Happy Mardi Gras to everyone else!
