A good beach day

Well there’s nothing like spending a 90º summer afternoon in a cool lake with your three kids, all under the age of 12 mind you (that’s key), wrestling and throwing them around in the waves, with high winds whipping up one-footers. Of course it ain’t the Atlantic, but whatryagonnado. We followed it up with some Pad Thai a-la-cart which I’ll post recipe for asap. Altogether an epic day!

Wordcamp Buffalo?

Thinking about trying to organize a Wordcamp in Buffalo some time next Spring. Anyone interested in helping out? I need to find sponsors, venue, speakers, etc. Not sure I want to get into unless I have some people backing me up!

Coconut Shrimp Recipe

I been working on my coconut shrimp:

  1. Throw frozen shrimp in some cool water for 1/2 hour or so or whatever
  2. pull off the shrimp shells and chuck ’em
  3. heat up pan with 1/4 inch oil on medium/high
  4. dry off shrimp in some paper towels and chuck em in the flour/old bay mix and dredge those bad boyz
  5. coat the dredged shrimp in a whisked mix of egg/milk/beer
  6. Toss coated shrimp in the coconut/bread crumb/pepper flak mix
  7. Whisk mayo/marmalade, squeeze 1/2 lime in it and whisk more
  8. Throw shrimp in pan for 3-4 miutes, turn
  9. Wait 3-4 minutes, place cooked shrimp on paper towels
  10. When cool enough, serve with mayo/marmalade dip. Toothpicks are good to have at this point.
