    Yep. I live very close to the Gulf of Mexico, and there are a ton of fresh seafood markets right there on Galveston Bay. I buy the octopus cleaned and ready to cook because I don't really know how to clean them. The shrimp I get in the shell, but without heads and peel them myself so I can use the shells to make shrimp stock for the campechana, gumbo, or to prepare the noodles for spring rolls.

    The octopus are very tender and have a great mild seafood flavor if you buy them fresh, I've used frozen and the cooked flavor and texture is not so great. IMO, if you can get past the tentacle factor, they're a really cheap source of seafood protein.

    I smoked this salmon last night. I am not so good at taking pictures of food (Apparently it's its own art form) but I can assure you I am very good at making it! I used cherry for this one. Usually I prefer apple wood, but I guess so did everyone else when I went to get my wood chips, so I had to try something new.

    Thank you! I actually don't know if it is or isn't any good. I don't eat fish or seafood. I've tried to grow to like it but just don't care for it. I did this for my wife. She seems to think it's pretty good.

    Thanks GEF :D :eat1:

    Thank you! :blush:


    My Easter Sunday dinner. My bf and my son were both here so I bothered to make a dinner. Unfortunately my son won't eat roast lamb (the traditional Easter roast) so I did a stuffed chicken instead. So it was chicken, pork sage & onion stuffing, mashed potatoes, potatoes roasted in goose fat (my favourites :smitten: ) carrots, broccoli, gravy and yorkshire puddings. I had bread sauce too but forgot until I started eating.

    My neighbors had a party and crawfish boil tonight. They gave us a HUGE tray of crawfish with some potatoes, sausage, corn, garlic cloves, and mushrooms (I've never seen people throw mushrooms in a crawfish boil pot but damn if they didn't soak up a lot of that good flavor and tasted great!).

    So many amazing food pics in here lately! :bow:

    Here's one of my favorites--broccoli cheese soup:

    It's a simple thing, but pair it with some salty crackers and :eat2:.

    That looks very nice indeed. I am a soup addict and make at least one pot a week. Do you have the recipe for this one, I'd love to try it. There is a thread for recipes from here on the forum somewhere. :smitten:

    Thanks. :happy:

    Done! http://www.dimensionsmagazine.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2129808&postcount=82

    It wasn't too hard to find the thread; it was a sticky, and you were actually the last one to post with a lovely garden pea/pancetta soup. It looked really good, and I loved the color; it's so much more vibrant than what you get with dried peas.

    Broccoli and cheese is one of my faves!
    That looks delicious.


    I had Campbell's Chicken with Wild and White rice for dinner last night.
    Sometimes you just need to kick it old school and keep it simple.

    I remember you sharing your tomato soup recipe with me years ago...lost the recipe but you made is sound so interesting with sour cream on top.

    I've never been much about taking pictures of food, but it's getting cooler and I have to start considering hibernation mode.

    Made that cream cheese stuffed monkey bread that was floating around on the Buzzfeed page on Facebook. Turned out pretty well, a bit bitter because I used baking chocolate chips instead of regular milk chocolate... will be making this again with milk chocolate, and it should taste better and even out the bitterness from the cream cheese, as well. Was pretty good overall, though.
