Today we are thankful for a son-in-law who likes to cook! Jamie planned and prepared an amazing seafood extravaganza last Friday night and it was delicious. He came over, pots and ingredients in hand ready to get started, and our mouths were watering to taste what he was preparing. Out came fresh cloves of garlic, lobster tails, shrimp, fresh parsley, linguine, butter, and grated parmesan as he got busy chopping, boiling, peeling and preparing. Pear salads were made and coconut shrimp was baked in the oven, along with scrumptious garlic cheese bread. I was in heaven having someone else do the cooking (while I helped entertain grandkids) and then being able to sit down and enjoy his culinary delights! Unfortunately I didn't get step by step pictures of our chef in action, but hopefully you will get the idea of how yummy it was. Thank you Jamie and Tara for sharing this special meal with us!

After filling our bellies with seafood we settled in as a family to watch "Up!" with the grandkids. It was a really cute movie and made for a nice finish to a fun Friday night!
