Swai fish

My family love seafood. We have some type of seafood at least once or twice a week. So yesteraday I decided to try a different fish. We always indulge on talipia or salmon, so I decided to try Swai fish. I have to tell you its a very clean, crisp, sweet, flavor. The texture is very light and flaky. I paired this fish with a shrimp salad and a glass of blackberry wine; delicious!!! 

  I always use Louisiana seasonings, it just makes it better. I  seasoned my shrimp with salt and blackpepper and an little garlic salt. I sauteed them in butter until they turned pink, and then I served them on a bed of butter lettuce with cucumbers, tomatoes, served with a dash of lemon. Oh and for dessert I served some hot peach cobbler! Hmm-Hmm good.

"Happy Holidays"

I know its been a while since I posted anything. But you know life it throws things out at you. But I'm back!  I will be talking about the holidays. Thanksgiving was beautiful but unfortunately I did not take any pictures. Christmas was wonderful! we opened gifts, and I must say the girls gave beautiful, wonderful gifts. They really put a lot of thought in their gifts. Their father and I were really pleased.
 We headed out for dinner with family, it was nice, cozy, and such a warm feeling to be sitting with family and friends on Christmas. I did not get pictures of this day either, but I do have a few pictures of  Christmas decorations around my house. I love to decorate for Christmas, and I also love to make Christmas wreaths. Let me know what you think.

 New Year's eve was quiet, but we thanked God for letting us live to see another year. I hope everybody enjoyed their holidays and "Happy New Year"
