Whats the best advice to start adding seafood into my diet?

I have never had the urge to eat seafood in my first 20 years. I am moving down south in which a huge part of the culture is seafood. I almost feel obliged to start eating this diet. Whats some seafood i can eat that will draw me in and not gross me out? They have such an obsession with crab down in louisiana, whats the best way to eat crab? thanks for your replies!

Boiled or Grilled — Start with Salmon — it has a mild taste. I’ve had crab legs boiled and also had them grilled — it depends … both of those ways are good, and with a little melted butter (dip the meat in it — you will need to crack the shell), it tastes great.

Why don’t Sports teams have names that reflect where they are?

You know like the Arizona Lizards, Louisiana Cajuns, etc.

Green Bay Packers – Indian Packing Company

Minnesota Vikings – 400% more immigrants from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland settle in Minnesota

Milwaukee Brewers – Beer capital of the world

Minnesota Twins – Twin Cities

Dallas Cowboys – Texas Longhorns

Miami Dolphins – LOTS of dolphins there

New York Jets – First commercial jet service between New York and England

San Francisco 49ers – What they called people during the Gold Rush

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Pirates used the port in Tampa

Pittsburgh Steelers – Steel capital of the world

Oakland Raiders – Also pirate reference, but relating to China

Seattle Seahawks – State bird

ANYWAY, I could go on, but this should make the point. Almost all teams have local names, but their meaning may have been lost over time. Hope it helps…Kes

Sticky: Literacy Pass It On



I Love You Bigger than The Sky! promotes literacy

Whoop! Whoop! umm, one more time. Whoop! Whoop! Hey y’all exciting news!! You can now get your copies of my childrens book “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” locally:
Ann Marie’s Hallmark in Jennings at 419 Roberts Ave. is now carrying “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” as well as signed matted prints of Laura’s artwork…. They will also have copies of my “If I were a French Quarter Rat” as soon as it is available. I will be doing a book signing there also for their Holiday Open House on November 6th at 10:00.  Y’all come! and at least for this time- See you in Jennings! :-)

Promote literacy in your home.  Read to your child, your grandchild, any child.  Literacy is a priceless gift, don’t be stingy.  Pass it on!
