My dinner was a lobster tail, crab legs, 6 fried shrimp and 6 shrimp scampi with one of their crispy-skinned baked potatoes loaded with butter and sour cream.
Kim loves fried stuff, so he had a whole bunch of fried shrimp, bay scallops, clams, fish and French fries.

It's been a beautiful day, and very mild for this time of year. His kids did what they should have and my daughter came by while ago with a pan of brownies, so Granpa's chocolate urges will be satisfied. Right now, he's having a rum drink and listening to Jimmy Buffet.

So good.....
wish Kim a happy Birthday and a Yippee on his retirement Now the fun begins...

Constance, Happy Birthday to your beloved husband. My best wishes for a long, enjoyable, and fulfilling retired life. I hope you will now have plenty of time to smell the roses together and rediscover all the little things in life that inevitably are pushed aside in the hustle and bustle of work.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

Last night we just had good old turkey tacos, using ground turkey, a taco "kit" (tweaked with additional spices), & topped with fresh chopped lettuce & tomato, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, & taco sauce.

I'm in the southwestern part of Balto county.
I have found andoullie at Wegman's in Hunt Valley, but my local stores don't carry it. The andoullie at Costco is made of chicken, I prefer the pork product. Maybe I just need to shop out of my neighborhood

or maybe if you really want something special, go online, that's what I do when I want to get something special
