CELEBRATING HIS BIRTHDAY WITH A CAJUN CRAWFISH BOIL



This was a weekend long celebration of
being "thirty-something!"


Time to go out on the town
and enjoy some night life!


Cocktails at the ice bar.......


Explaining a bad haircut.....


A really great daughter-in-law......
we talked about Big Little Lies over and over......


How about a beautiful Cran Cosmo?


Yum....
Brick oven pizza for them, meat lovers
and
for us, Margherita style!


Vino anyone?


Friday night lights


This is downtown Plano


Urban style town homes across from the 
entertainment pavilion


There's a full moon on the rise......


Saturday was a day full of activity....
preparations were underway for
a crawfish boil!
The darling sure looks happy
with this BIG NEW POT!


Preparing the appetizers...
OMG...these were amazing!


"What the heck are those?"
They stink too!
~Bo Bo


It's five o'clock....
spring Pinot Grigio time.....


I am going to make these for many more celebrations!
Creamy corn stuffed sweet peppers!


He even bought a new paddle.......


Cajun boil.....
there's a method to the madness.....


Now that's a big ole pot of goodness.....


Good lord....
looks like we are feeding an army...
shrimp and crab for me......


So glad these three could make the celebration!
This was a weekend of fun on a bun!
Almost makes it worth turning another year older...
fun, good food, cocktails, birthday cake
and
FAMILY!


I hope y'all stop by this week...
we are going to have so much fun with 
Easter and spring!
