I Love Fresh Seafood

..but not sushi. I didn’t eat shrimp until in my teens. My first raw oysters were experienced after college. Back in the fifties, the San Jacinto Inn was my favorite place to eat seafood. What the Cajuns call  “Gumbo” isn’t what I believe it to be. They must throw every swimming creature in a pot and boil the heck out of it and find it delicious. They also eat what I used to call crawdads, donchaknow. My friend Les Kincaid introduced me to a plethora of good eating and I miss him and Tammy. I can catch his latest postings on his website and on the internet. I ate my first alligator tail in Florida with Sonny and Judy Broussard.  I suppose my favorite place to eat catfish is the Catfish King in Mount Pleasant, but then, Red Lobster has become a favorite. Once in a while I would find some very good Lobster Tail and Steak at Outback, but then again, Cheddars serves a pretty good plate of catfish, too. The more I think about it, the hungrier I get, so I’ll go into the pantry and open a foil-pack of Albacore Tuna with some crackers and play like. It’s funny just how we evolve into what food we find as a favorite, like liver and onions or that pot roast Mattie Tabb Austin could serve. Three cheers for butter beans,  crowder peas, fried okra and sweet cream corn with home-brewed sweet tea and cornbread. HmmmUmmm, now that’s livin’, down home style. Good memories are made of good food and family. If you have the chance to enjoy both this Christmas, say a prayer for those who don’t. GOD will smile. That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.   AMEN
