Weekend

I had a great weekend while Jim was gone in Louisiana for his fishing tournament. Friday I went to my favorite nursery and picked out two new pots for the front door. I've had these faded cheap clay pots for the past 4 years and it was time to get some nice ones. I chose dark brown/black pots because I'm painting my red door glossy black VERY SOON!

Here they are! In the fall I'll have miniature oranges on these tiny citrus trees.

Sunday at 5 AM I received a text from Jason...for some reason I didn't believe him when he told me she was giving birth but around 6 AM I got my first picture of Mr. W. H. D. I can't tell you how excited I am for Jaclyn and Jason. I'm extremely happy for them and I cant wait to hold W in my arms. He's precious and each day the boy gets more handsome. I can't tell you how emotional I got when I saw his picture for the first time...I think of Jac and Jason as family and It was a surreal moment for me. Heres the little guy below!


Sunday mom and I went shopping and I found my mirrored table I've been searching for at Homegoods...this same table I've seen for triple the price on the Neiman Marcus website. I'm so happy I found it! (I actually had given up on finding a mirrored table and was going to make my own.)
Jim didn't get home until 11:oo PM on Sunday night. He surprised me with my favorite shrimp, RUBY REDS and fresh wahoo and mahi. I made ceviche and had to share the recipe...it's the best I've made and SUPER EASY! Recipe is below.


Ry's Ceviche Recipe

EVERYONE NEEDS TO GET GOYA SEASONING! I use the cumin variety.

Goya seasoning to taste (I used a lot)
6 limes
4 lemons
1 minced garlic clove
dash of vinegar
dash of sugar
1 seeded hot pepper (If you don't like the heat leave it out)
1 pound of halibut, mahi, wahoo, snapper or shrimp (I used wahoo and shrimp)
3 tomatoes (I seeded them and chopped them fine)
1 purple onion chopped fine
cilantro (I got a handful and chopped it fine also)
salt and pepper to taste (I didn't use salt bc I used the GOYA)
AND if you want to make it fancy dice up some avocado right before you serve...it goes perfect with the citrus juice.

____

Dice the fish into cubes

pour the cirtus juice and the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and marinate for more than 3 hours...stir often.

Right before you serve dice some avocado if you have it on hand

On your first bite you'll think your on the beach in Mexico. ENJOY!

What a gorgeous baby! And the ceviche sounds great - I love ceviche but I've never tried making it myself. Think I might just have to now!
