Today is my 53rd birthday, and I want to eat my favorite food. Seafood and fresh water food. Vegetables and fruit can take a break for one meal. So what kind of seafood do I like? I haven't eaten any that I didn't like. Favorites are shrimp, crawfish, crab legs, crappie, and channel cat. All of which I would rather catch myself, but I have too many things going on, and the crab legs part - you're not going to find me out on a boat in Alaska trapping them - I would have done it when I was younger though.

I like seafood prepared simple and quick. I like the taste of seafood - not spices.

I dont like spicy fish either unless I am bored to death.
Just a little salt and black pepper please.
I also cant stand the so called spicy fries.

Happy Birthday Salt!!!

Find a good seafood buffet and eat till you can't walk.


Mater, yes, I browned them first. That makes a big difference in flavor.

Worth, I picked up some Achiote powder to use in a rub. I also noticed they had a paste too. I think I'm gonna cook a chicken with a lime juice/achiote marinade for supper.

Happy Birthday Salt. I hope you get a belly full of seafood today. The only seafood I have tried that I didn't care for is squid.

Rajun, as always your food looks delicious!

I had something I've never had before last night and, considering it's a vegetable I don't really care for it was good! Roasted Radishes! Just tossed in a li'l olive oil and salt and pepper and baked on a baking sheet in a 400 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes. YUM!

Salt, eat as much seafood as you want! Birthdays come once a year and we only have one life to live! Hope you're b-day is blessed!

Rajun, as always the chops look awesome!

Salt, I was thinking of you as I made supper. Made mushrooms, sliced and pan fried in butter until crisp on the outside and tender inside, then sauteed some Tilapia filets in the remaining mushroom butter until just done, spooning butter over them as they cooked. A nice green salad and I was set.

I learned that going out to eat seafood is NOT cheap eaten. It has been years since we last did that. I'll cook seafood at home from now on. It tastes a lot better cooked at home too.

That sounds delicious! I've been wondering what to do with all the icicle radishes I am growing as a kind of cover crop. I've only eaten them in the past as a garnish on salads. I also like them fresh in the garden like a freshly pulled carrot. They have a refreshing quality to them which I enjoy.

Made my version of Italian wedding soup for supper last night. This weather is bi-polar. Another low 30's night last night. Already on the agenda for this fall is a kind of either removable or retractable greenhouse top for the raised beds we built last year. I used meatballs we had already made and frozen, some blanched spinach we had frozen, some homemade chicken bone & vegetable broth, some pasta, & a few spices to make the soup.

Long story.

Most of the time, when eating out, the seafood is often overcooked for my taste. And over priced, LOL, but then I have a very fixed budget.

The radishes cooked /broiled sound tasty. I want to try some turnips sliced and fried in a panko too. Supposed to be good, wonder if a milder radish, like icicle, would be good that way?

Anyone who has a HEB nearby and you like ham - I bought a 10.89 lb. Cook's ham for $8.39. They had a lot of them both butt and/or shank portion. 77 cents per pound.

You bring back memories of many happy days in the boy scouts eating cold pork and beans right out of the can plus some not so happy days in the Army eating cold rations right out of the can. Hand me another one of those green cans full of wonderful cold spaghetti with marinara sauce please.
