I hope that you had a nice relaxing Mother's Day weekend ladies~all of us Mom's definitely deserve that!!
We celebrated our anniversary on Friday night by going out for a nice dinner to one of our favorite seafood restaurants with our older daughter and her long time boyfriend. They are so cute together~it's nice to spend time with them as friends. I hope that they don't mind my sharing this photo that I took before we headed out to the Captain's Tavern.
One of the things that I love most about life in Miami is the tropical flora and fauna that is in abundance year round. We really are in the tropics way down here, and unfortunately along with the beauty comes the dreaded hurricane season....that is almost here~eeeks!!! We have lots of coconut palms on our property....you could easily survive off the land here for at least a week. The trees are now loaded with mature coconuts, and my coco loco cuban guys stopped by the other day to help themselves with the Fufu family's blessings. They supplement their incomes selling these, and with over 5,000 removed last year from our yard.........they have their work cut out (literally) for them!! They cracked open a couple for me.....the milk is thin and sweet, and the flesh is juicy and tender....nothing at all like store bought. Wish that I could send some your way........
Timberrrr! You definitely don't want one of these falling and bopping you over the head.
They hauled away lots, but there are tons more to spare. They filled their truck until the back tires were almost flat.
Yummo.....sweet nature's candy. I peeled the tender stuff out with a dull knife and just ate it fresh. The milk tasted great in a seafood dish that I prepared on Saturday night, which I forgot to take a picture of. I made some pasta, sauteed some scallops and a bit of broccoli and then created a sauce with the coconut milk. Leftovers will be delish for today's lunch!
Have a great week......
Talk soon~ Janet~
