Happy Valentine's Day!
Yesterday was fun. I met Brian,Jen,Tucker,Sami,
and Jean in Jacksonville. We had brunch at the Bella Union.
Good food. Our darling little waitress, Emily, has a birthday today also. Several super people I love have birthdays today. First is my son Brian, then my mother-in-law Winona, then my friend Patsy in Oceanside.
We ate wonderful food. Tucker and Sami made me Valentines. Brian enjoyed his day and his new watch. We walked around Jacksonville and went into several shops. Here are a few photos...
Sami likes hats!
A bench just their size!
I got to Jacksonville early and did some shopping
at the Mercantile. I love that store. I got a bottle
of Sonoma Pepper (Lemon Orange Pepper blend
that I use daily on EVERYTHING) and some
Fisherman's Wharf Seafood Seasoning.
This is amazing seasoning containing salt,
black pepper, parsley, garlic, white onion,
lemon peel, green peppercorns, and green onion.
Rub it onto fish prior to cooking, add to mayo for
a spread or dip, add to olive oil for a dunk for bread,
sprinkle it on tomatoes or any salad, a thousand uses.
