This is the time of year that I start to get cabin fever. I’ve had my fill of winter, boy has it been a long cold winter, and I’m ready to move on to spring, how about you! I’m ready to move on from the soups and stews that we all cook up in the winter and on to something with a little more spice. Something you can hold in your hand or eat with a fork instead of a spoon. I found a package of frozen crawfish tails at the store the other day and thought a Po Boy sure would be good. Then I went to pick up some lettuce and tomato to dress the sandwich when I found some slightly green tomatoes. They were starting to ripen but still green on top and firmer than a ripe tomato. That just made my mouth water thinking about a fried green tomato alongside crispy crawfish tails and remoulade sauce.

When Joe and I got married it was kind of spur of the moment. After high school he went off to college and I stayed home on the farm. After his first year of college we decided pretty quick to get married over the summer before he had to go back to school. It just happened that we married on August 14th and as a young girl I thought it romantic that every Valentines day would be our half year anniversary. Every Valentines day we kid each other and say “We made it another 6 month’s”. Well, this Valentines day it will be 31 and a half years, I guess we made it! I usually make him a special dinner and a something sweet since he is a sweetheart, after all. This year I decided to go big on chocolate and found these lucious chocolate chip cupcakes with a chocolate buttercream frosting from Your Cup Of Cake. I knew these cupcakes would get his attention and I was pretty happy with them too.
