Weekends and Seafood are two of my favorite things. This past weekend my family and I were treated to a seafood feast hosted this month by one of my sisters. Miss A and I took more pictures this time….
Okay so our hostess made more than a few, but we didn’t mind at all.
They were nice and toasty and really good.
Our hostess also made a Shrimp Calypso Pasta dish.
And she steamed a few crab legs.
You should have seen my mom crushing the crackers for the topping. She really had fun with it!
Miss A and my “baby” sister are measuring ingredients for the Cheese Garlic Biscuits. My little sister is wearing white…can you see her baby bump? I’m one of the organizers of her pending baby shower. I can hardly wait to share the details with you.
Miss A is such an awesome helper in the kitchen. She’s going to be a great cook.
The biscuits are ready for their turn in the oven.
These little gems were soooo good.
In that bowl lies my cole slaw sauce.
I live an hour from my sister, the hostess’ home. I was almost two thirds of the way from my home when I realized that I left the two bags of shredded cabbage I needed in the fridge. Ugh. I was hoping to avoid another trip to the grocery store.
But that’s okay. I did stop to buy more and I made the cole slaw which we used to top our Fish Tacos with. I’ve decided that the cabbage shreds I left at home will be used for making spring rolls.
These are the nice and warm tortilla shells we filled.
The Fish Taco fillings also included baha sauce, pico de gallo, taco sauce, sauteed cod fillets, cheddar cheese and sour cream.
For dessert, my sister wearing the baby bump and Miss A made a really delicious Pistachio Cream Pie. She uses almond slivers instead of pistachio nuts on the outside and creamy pistachio pudding on the inside. It’s actually a really good combination.
Finally, my mom shared her lemon cookies with us. These weren’t home baked, but they were delicious.
Oh…that green stuff at the very top was a Ginger Ale and Sherbert Punch. Miss A and I thought the picture of the foamy top was kinda cool.
After brunch, we received a lesson in crocheting by my “baby” sister. It’s almost Spring, but I’m making a scarf.
Thank You to our hostess for organizing such a beautiful day!!
