Of course since our original roots are from Maryland, Jerry said it just wasn't a crab dish without sprinkling on Old Bay seasoning!
It's funny, when we lived in North Carolina for awhile he had requested the seasoning at a seafood place down there and they had no idea what he was talking about! We were shocked, guess we can't imagine someone not hearing of Old Bay, lol. Needless to say we couldn't find it in the local grocery stores either so when my parents came to visit we always asked for them to bring us some. ;-)
I also made this delicious homemade BBQ chicken and served it up on some wheat rolls. Hayley loved this so much she had me make it again when she had her friend over to visit for the day. I also got this from my Food Network app, but if you go online and search it at their site you can print out the recipe for your records. It's super yummy the next day for leftovers too!
I also got a few deals at CVS the other day, not my best ever, but still a good deal. I got all the items below with 2 water bottles (sorry drank them before taking pic, lol) for $20.00 and $5.00 in ECB's. (Extra Care Bucks) So basically $15.00 for all listed. 2 bottles of Xtra detergent, Nyquil, Air-borne, 2 water bottles, Razor, tissues and deodorant. Not bad considering the medicines are about $20.00 together without the extras.
Yesterday Jerry ran a 1/2 marathon at a park trail, despite his bad knees. He is preparing to run a full marathon in memory of his brother Patrick he lost last year. He did well considering his Dr's say he shouldn't be running. He finished in 2 hours and 20 mins.
Kathleen wanted to make a banner for him and left this on the table.
Kathleen didn't want me to feel left out so she wrote a bunch of practice words on her own and left them at my place on the table.
This was one of the areas of water they saw while running and of course the geese were enjoying it as well!
Here is a picture of Jerry and his co-worker and friend Alan.
Alan snapped this photo of Jerry coming through the finish line.
He's feeling pain in his knees today and is quite stiff in his joints, but he's proud he made it through. I admire his motivation.
On another note we happen to be part of the region affected by this awful storm. The schools are closed and Jerry's work has closed as it sits next to a river. I'm so thankful we are all here together as we watch the rain come down harder and the wind picking up in larger gusts.
We lost a tree branch already, I'm sure the first of many to come.
The wind is wicked and I'm wondering if these skeletons you can just barely seeing hanging in our trees will still be around tomorrow! LOL
This is the view in our skylights.....
My kitchen window is not much better.
And sadly we are keeping up with the news of one of our favorite vacation spots.... Ocean City, MD. who is getting hit especially hard and the worst has not even hit yet.
My thoughts and prayers are going out to all of us affected by this severe weather. Hoping for minimal damage although that seems unlikely. Wanted to post also in case we lose electric for any length of time. I hope my phone will continue to keep me connected, but the service has already been running slow. We are taking the time to carve pumpkins today and enjoy some family time. Will do a separate post on that soon.
I have also taken the plunge and added instagram to my list of things to do that I enjoy and to interact with others. If you are interested in following me there I have an open profile, just search jillkh. Love to follow you back if you want you can email me your links at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy your week! Stay safe to all of you affected by this storm!!!
