Does anyone remember the flowers I bought at the Farmer's Market at Lake Tahoe this past summer?? I ended up drying some of them and they are in the picture below.

You probably can't tell from the picture but the tallest vase including flowers is 3 1/2 inches tall. Anyway I like them....they remind me of the summer in Lake Tahoe.
Our plans for Christmas Eve included lobster, but had to be cancelled because we ended up working. So we had them last night and they were GREAT!! Our original intention was to grill them on the Big gASS grill but with the 15 to 25 mph winds we have been having that was impossible. I used my Lodge Logic grill pan and and mine turned our wonderfully. They marinated in lime juice, garlic, and fresh cilantro. Of course, Rex just boiled his - he didn't trust the grill pan. We also had scallops and shrimp. A real seafood night. It was great, my dessert was a banana foster crepe...he had ice cream. All in all a great day off.
