Friday Night Fabulous Feasting Part II

Hello all.....we did it again this week. We WERE tempted to head over to Cracker Barrel for their Friday Fish Fry for our date, but alas! We would have left you all high and dry and missed out on another fab feast here on Haywood.

So without further delay, come and see this weeks Valentine's meal! The Menu included:

Maryland Style Crab Cakes with Spicy Cream Sauce
Garlic Roasted Yellow Squash, Zucchini and Baby Green Beans
Cedar Plank Grilled Sockeye Salmon with Sweet Citrus and Spice Rub
And One De-lish Idaho Baked Potato (well just plain "Baked Potato" looked a little lonely... :)

Now the decor was a tribute to the hoodlums, complete with table ornaments made by them and some of their candy that they were willing to part with. Oh and the FLOWERS! Well, those were from my Sweetie for Valentine's Day, sent EARLY so they would all be opened BY Valentine's Day. C'mon now, THAT is somethin'! Irises and Mini Red Tulips perfected the table for us. We used what we had and made it special for us. Of course we still liked the idea of taking half of the table leaves out and sitting by the window so we implemented that again!

This week's dinner was my fav so far. Two words. CRAB CAKES. We L-o-v-e seafood and I seriously ponder things like wondering if the "little cake" the Widow Woman made Elisha was just like the one I ate today. Ok Yeah, I think crazy things like that. Think about it, no wonder he asked her to make one for him first! Okay I tease, but it does get the ole' imagination goin'..... Take a look at what hit our "Happy Spots"....

Ok so Elisha's cake would have to have been a JUMBO cake to slightly resemble mine but who's really comparing??.... Wow, just looking at this again makes me hungry.....

This salmon was just THE BEST. The cedar plank had to be soaked and then dried in the oven before it was used and it was so cool that I will admit that when a friend stopped over I made HIM look in the oven at it! Everything was soo good!

Pr 15:17 "Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith."

Now by using this verse I am not leaking out next week's menu, though herbs might be involved. I AM noting that when you have a house full of love, anything tastes good!

Happy Valentine's Day Friends!

.....and be sure to let me in on YOUR adventures this month!!


  1. This week, I made Doug's favorite meal, roasted chicken with rice and corn. It's simple, but something that says I love you since I'd much rather have roasted chicken with potatoes and peas. ("I love you in small ways")

  2. Excellent!! Way to go Becky, you sweet homemaker you!!

  3. Thanks. I'm a little at a loss for what to do for I love you this minute. And for I'll love you always. I don't know. I'm trying to think of what to do.
