He looked at me in disbelief,
I could see it in his eyes,
"Why are you here?"
It's my act of mercy.
My husband has been wonderful and he deserves
something special, over the top special.
So I agreed to eat at a fish place.
When we visit my mom I like to eat at
On The Border
because they have these absolutely wonderful
Mango Margaritas !!!!
Now, I'm not much of a drinker but these are SO tasty.
On day 2 I received a message from my husband
with a link to Mr. Whiskers so I thought it was a hint.
OK, some chicken but still meat.
I'm not a vegetarian, I eat a little meat.
But this is mostly meat and FISH.
I agreed so we set off for this little fish diner up the
road from Mom's house. I get up to the counter to order
and I stop in my tracks. Fish, fish and more fish.
I tell the person taking the order that I need a minute.
I'm trying to figure out what I want that isn't meat.
Well, you saw the beginning of this post.
I selected Shrimp, which I do like
but which is so often poorly deveined that I get--
for lack of a better term--
all grossed out.
The plate arrives with six HUGE deveined shrimp,
two hushpuppies and fries. I cautiously cut open the shrimp,
which are beautifully breaded, and I am amazed.
It's almost like lobster.
They are cooked perfectly.
And they taste good!
The hushpuppies are the best I have ever had!
Before we left I had to find the person who took
the order and tell him how wonderful the food is.
He broke out in a big smile.
We'll be back.
