Today beheld Cooper, that dreamy little shrimp, oh, and fried shrimp too, mmm, mmm, good. Bowen, Stace, and Coop came over to celebrate Stacey’s pre-birthday and Bowen’s graduation. Bowen doesn’t eat meat (but does eat fish), and it’s a gorgeous day and I knew we could hang by the pool, so I thought, hmmmm, something beachy/summery would be fun. Therefore fried shrimp. And a big salad. And since I was frying, I threw in some onion rings to boot. Damn, fried food is fabulous, especially when you’re burning your fingers trying to eat it smoking hot and crispy. Out on the deck, in the sun. Suz’s cherry cake for dessert, with whipped cream. Moderate? Well, only in one’s portions, my friends, and that’s up to you. This is what I know – it could not have been better. Not with heavenly Cooper Doo (again, his scent – Love’s Cooper Soft), and fried foo (that’s short for food, to make it rhyme), and cherry cake too… Unless we’d been at the beach! (Recipe for fried shrimp and onion rings posted in comments, below. To make a baby, well, I’ll leave that up to you…)
