BEST SHRIMP ETOUFEE....ENTERTAINING FAMILY!
The darling and I had the perfect start to our summer.
We enjoyed a visit from his sister and brother-in-law
all the way from Mississippi!
It marked the first time of welcoming them to our Texas home!
They have both recently retired and have made the big decision to take to the roads and
travel in style!
This is their precious rescue dog, Sadie!
She is a real luv-bug and is always, always by their side!
This is their new Home away from Home!
let me just say....
this is THE most luxurious way to travel!
I think they are going to love
We all LOVE gulf seafood and took them to one of our favorite dining spots in Plano at Shops of Legacy....Half Shells! This put us in the mood for some good ole' Etoufee for the weekend! What a wonderful visit we had! Too short.....too long between visits! Safe travels Y'all!
It's going to be a busy weekend with gardening chores and some good seafood cooking in the kitchen! Ice cold beer and wine will be on the menu and a trip to Costco for some good ole' gulf shrimp! This is Darling's favorite etoufee and he certainly deserves a treat! So y'all enjoy your family this weekend and celebrate those moments of your life!
