Twenty four hours in Eden

We got back a bit ago from our 24 hour mini vacation visiting our friends, Janet and Bob, at their beautiful home on Anna Maria Island. They truly have created a slide of Eden here and we thank them for sharing it with us.

This was a guys' cooking time. Bob had lunch ready when we arrived. It was a lovely salad with shrimp, sugar roasted pecans greens and fresh mango with a raspberry dressing and cranberry scones! Oh my taste buds were doing the happy dance. We ate out on their loge ( I think that what a lanai on the Med is called) and the view is breathtaking. While it was hot and humid in the front of the house, the Gulf breezes were a delight where we wiled away the afternoon. Their darling daughter, Becca, headed out right after lunch for the airport to get to her new school for classes starting on Monday. It was good to meet her and she sure takes after her mom!

Soon we put the guys to work on supper and to amuse Janet and myself, Janet made us frozen margaritas in her industrial strength margarita maker.

I'll post food pics of our co-chef cooked meal later today. I need to go admire our garden as we got RAIN!

Oh well that all looks yummy indeed! Now my husband doesn't cook but he has come to fancy himself quite a food photographer since he took pics at the fancy fishing lodge last week (fishing and food pics)for them to use on their new website and in other promotions. He even got paid! (Well a $700 discount off his bill). so I do think we will just have to come down there and let hom take pictures some time...don't you think!
