Brought to you by the letter B



1.  Boots


You know I love boots, and I would totally have these if they came in
my size!  Luke certainly enjoys them, tho...even with his "confeeee PJs".


2.  Basketball


Sam's dribbling pretty much all the time.


3.  Besties


Luke always loves spending time with his best girl, Gracie!  And,
I love spending time with her amazing Mama.  (My BFF, Megs.)


4.  Buds


Some of our trees are ready for Spring!


5.  Baking


I love firing up the oven for sweet treats, but here's my (current)
favorite thing to bake...FYI...


Seafood Spread

32 oz. cream cheese
1 bag (2lbs.) fully cooked shrimp, thawed, tails removed and chopped
8 oz. crab meat, flaked and chopped
4-6 hot yellow chilies, seeded and chopped
4-6 banana peppers, seeded and chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 tsp. crushed garlic

In a large saucepan, heat cream cheese over low until melted, stirring frequently.
Add the shrimp and crab.  Combine, then stir in the remaining ingredients.
Stir frequently until hot.  Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.


Okay...that recipe makes a TON.  So, I spread the remainder in a pie plate
sprinkle a little parm cheese and bake it for 15-20 minutes.  Amazing!

P.S.  Don't forget to enter my current GIVEAWAY.
