Shrimp Fest

Awe, Day 2 of the Beach, it seems like the week is already going by too quickly.  We went to one of several local seafood markets today and purchased 4 lbs of peeled and deveined SHRIMP!!  I used up one 1 lb of it for dinner and made a Baked Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta served over basmati brown rice.  We all that it was exquisite, and ate it as two shrimp boaters drove by as they were calling it a day.

Final turnout as it was pulled from the oven.
Here it is spooned over rice (Andy and I had ours with leftover black olives).
We boiled the other 3 lbs using Zatarain's Shrimp Boil recipe: 4 Tbsp salt, a quartered lime,and a package of boiling spices. 
Topsail 2008 058
We served 1 lb with cocktail sauce as an appetizer (and refrigerated a pound for tomorrow's shrimp cocktail and the last pound was chopped and will be used later this week for Shrimp Rolls!
This mornings breakfast was a slice of challah french toast (beaten egg with splash of milk and vanilla extract) two tsp natural peanut butter, sliced banana, cinnamon, and honey.  I also had one spicy hot sausage pattie.  I ate this while watching the ocean view from the screened porch along with a mug of cinnamon bun coffee.
