Here is the gang enjoying their Canada Day feast. Judy is on the left, my hubby is at the head of the table and Lysa and John! Me and my sweet Hubby enjoying our first Canada Day as Canadian Citizen's. The candy striped building in the back is our new pool house and my new studio. Here are some pictures of the new building.We are just waiting for the siding to be done and all of the inside finishes. This is the front of the building that faces the pool.This is a side view of the building that faces the pond. They are targetted to finish at the end of this month. I will share all of the inside photos when it is done. I can't wait to decorate my new 20x35 foot studio. My very own space! My husband is so awesome for building a second floor on this building to make me happy!
On Tuesday, July 1st we celebrated Canada Day with our good friends from Canada and we had our first Low Country Boil. This is a southern meal cooked down in a big pot with lots of flavor. I found the recipe in Paula Deans calendar cookbook. It not only included the how-to's, but how much to cook for each person. The Low Country Boil is made with Old Bay Seasoning, shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes.I found a 42-Qt. pot to cook our boil in and it worked just great. I found it at Lowe's of all places. Here we are adding the shrimp last to the pot. Almost ready to Eat!Here is the feast. The shrimp were done perfectly along with everything else. The recipe worked out great. All of the timing and amounts per person were perfect. We had 2 potatoes and 1 piece of corn left over. We will definitely have this again, soon!
We finished the day out with some fireworks of our own.
We had a great Canada Day and we are looking forward to some more partying tomorrow for the 4th! I hope you all have a great 4th of July.
