Maybe that explains why this week at the grocery store, a pound of frozen cooked shrimp is three dollars more on sale than it was last week!

Come for a visit!

I think I will celebrate my 43rd birthday at Seabra's if I can make June 2nd National Sangria Day instead of National Rocky Road Ice Cream Day! The Sangria is delightful!

I celebrated with some shrimp bisque.
 
Ignore the crab.  I made them before I found out what crab cost per pound.
 
Makes shrimp seem cheap.

What's the stuff on the rim of the cup? The crab is neat! Is that puff pastry?

That's because all the good European and Mediterranean foods and restaurants are located in the East & Midwest.
You have Mexican foods, and Beef -  they have Polish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Greek. Hungarian, Irish, Scandinavian etc etc, etc.

Store bought puff pastry cut with a cookie cutter.
 
Old Bay Seasoning around the rim.
 
It would have been better as a sprinkle on top.  Live and learn.
