ON THE BACK BURNER

May10

Shrimp and grits! Sunday family meal that is requested most often. Today's shrimp were not my regular super market shrimp. They came directly from Alaska and were big and sweet. A boater gave 4 lbs of them to my son , frozen. I can't remember what kind they were but they had really hard shells that I had to use scissors to cut the shrimp out. Then they were filled with roe. That is something that I have never seen . I tasted it and it didn't have much taste. I think you would have to treat it in some way  to get caviar from it. The shrimp were large , about 3 or 4 ounces each. There was absolutely not anything left over from this meal. I always have trouble coming up with what to serve at our next family meal after I do a shrimp and grits dinner. To top it off,  my grandson's girl friend made her famous apple pie for dessert and I got a special one just for me. I'm going to eat it right now , in my pod. This way, I don't have to share !

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
