Bon Appétit

By Georgia Osten
I’ve never proclaimed to be a great cook, but I do love to cook. I love new recipes, hence the fact that Pinterest won’t leave me alone. They keep sending me recipe after recipe. Just like short bob style haircuts. I print out the recipes I like, page after page. I get a bit frustrated when they want me to download some app from Chrome, in fact, I get A LOT frustrated. I will usually use my print screen and paste it into Irfan View – I’ll show them!!!

I wish I was a good cook like the rest of the ladies on my Bunko Team. They whip up these fantastic meals. I mean, you can’t wait to get over to their houses to begin eating. Every second Wednesday, we skip lunch so we’re good and hungry for our 6:30 event.

This year, September is my month, I plan to get my husband to drive clear to Winnie to pick up sandwiches from A Brewed Awakening. Then, I’ll ask my daughter to get these fantastic key lime pies in Pasadena. Sorry, I just don’t have it in me to try to compete with the other chefs extraordinaire. I mean, last month’s OVER ACHIEVER baked up three different cakes “from scratch.”

I will attempt to make a batch of shrimp dip, which I know the girls love. It happens to be a recipe I stole from my mother-in-law (bless her soul).

Don’t worry, I’ll give it all I’ve got, and then I’ll give credit where credit’s due. Let the dice roll and bon appétit.

GO’s Sand Bucket is only one beach bum’s journal of life at the beach, probably something each of you can relate to. Please feel free to email me with your thoughts, visions and/or feelings of just exactly what the beach means to you. Email:
