A few photos I took out at my grandparents home in the country. Eerily beautiful…
I love cooking, and I love seafood! However, cooking seafood can be a bit pricy especially for a college student. Lucky for me, I have some very dear friends from my hometown by the sea who gift me in large Gulf shrimp! And that’s when things get exciting!
So upon wanting to cook my lovely jumbo Gulf shrimp, I refer to one of my mother’s older cookbooks for some cheap yet interesting recipes. Lo and Behold, I come across the magnificent recipe for Shrimp Bilbaina! And let me tell you friends…it is good! And what makes it even better, is its quick and easy and made with average cooking items you would have around the house!
I would definitely encourage anyone to look this recipe up and try it! Its amazing! If you do try it, or would like more info on it, please by all means drop me a comment and I will reply! 🙂
If you have seen my Photography I assume you have noticed I am quite fond of the outdoors. However, despite the time i spend outside, I am naturally very fair skinned, being the Victorian Girl that I am 😉 (I should start carrying a parasol around with me). Usually upon doing any activity that requires extensive time outside I will wear sunscreen, however I cannot stand the smell of sunscreen, nor do I like the feel of it on my body. So yesterday I went out for a bit to relax before studying for my finals, and in the midst of enjoying the sunshine, I somehow fell asleep in the grass, on my tummy. The following day upon walking past my mirror in my birthday suit, I noticed that somehow I was wearing burlesque stockings that I did not put on. After taking a double take and touching the tights, I in fact realized that the burlesque tights were my tanned, and sun burnt skin. Of all my unusual sunburns I believe this was the most creative. (btw, I was wearing shorts when I got the tan). Now for my next artistic venture I will cut out little bows on adhesive paper, place them right along my tan line, and lay out in the sun once again. If anyone asks, they will be told that the entire endeavor was planned…
