Lobsters and Shrimp and Soup...oh my!
E is in his element when he knows we have people coming over for supper. He has spent the day tap dancing around the kitchen in his little size 14 Crocs creating the most amazing Carribean Black Bean soup...a dollop of sour cream on the top and a few cilantro springs for presentation and ooh ooh...the perfect accompaniment for what Suzie and Justin brought over last night to share...fresh caught Fl. lobster and shrimp right off the boat. And, they cleaned and cooked them for us too! Justin fixed the shrimp on skewers with a blend of Jamaican spices and the lobster tails with a garlic aioli and we chowed down. E had finished off the meal for us with his infamous apricot brownies. (these are the ones the Book Club girls fell in love with when the meeting was at my house) I figure roughly about a gazillion WW points last night but sometimes ya just have to give in to the temptation. I wouldn't have wanted to insult our guests now....
We're off to the Green Market in Dunedin today. I just love looking at all the pretty veggies ad we are out of tomatoes. Tonight is the crop at Ruban Rouge. Local gals, check out Lisa's blog for some news: she is moving the crop room back into the store and has the back room filled with 75% off stuff to clear the way for new product! This is the last crop in the crop room. Meeting a couple of pals there.
Hope your Friday is a good one!
