Missing the South....

Big Daddy and I spent our honeymoon in Charleston back in 1992. During that trip we had our very first Low Country Boil. It was delicious.

So, we decided to perfect the Boil at home, since SC was far away from Oklahoma.

So, over the last 15 years, we've pretty well perfected our
version on the Low Country Boil. Well, this is the first time we've made it since actually moving away from the South. And do you know, I actually couldn't find the spices I needed here in Kansas! They don't carry them!

Griffin actually loves seafood!

Marinne prefers corn-on-the-cob!!!

The big kids sat down by the pool.

A great meal was had by all!!!!!!!

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I live in NH.. never in my life have I heard of such a thing.. UNTIL I met my friend Wendy from LA... she moved up here 15 plus years ago.. and all she wanted for her birthday this year was THIS!!! So her hubby bought crawfish from LA and had it shipped to my home...

This yankee MADE a southern Boil.. ( the seasoning came with the crawfish)... she sat right down and started digging in.. I asked.. "does it taste like the south" and with food shoved in her mouth.. she said "mmmhuh"... I "doned" good she said!!! Ü
How FUN!!!!!
