This week’s One Word Photo Challenge from Jennifer Nichole Wells Photography is for the topic:



Here’s my take on it:

These may be a little stale:

Shrimp and conch fritters from Turtle Kralls?  Yes, please!:

A Mother’s Day breakfast in bed:

We’re in trouble.  They know how to make cupcakes!:

Some days, you just want to drink your dinner:

“Blueberry Hill” by Fats Domino

“Eat Steak” by The Reverend Horton Heat

“Food For Thought” by UB40

  1. I have never had a conch fritter…. that looks amazing! And way to go husband and kids!

    • Ha! She gets breakfast in bed and a little pampering every Mother’s Day. Sunday will be no different. 😃
      Hey! There should be a Crazy Aunt Day!!! Somebody pitch that to Hallmark!
      And, conch fritters are to die for, if made right. They’re the consistency of a scallop if done right. The ones at Turtle Kralls are the best I’ve ever tried. Makes sense, it’s right on the harbor in Key West. Great place. More locals than tourists and a terrific beer list. 😃😃👍

      • 😛 I was walking past the KitchenAid earlier and thought… what can I make? But I have no mix… I’d have to start from scratch. Which is doable. 😛

      • Oh, hell yeah! Definitely doable! Just blame me. I’m ok with that. 😃

      • I will probably be baking my own Mother’s Day treat so… I should probably wait. Mother’s Day kind of sucks. The kids are younger so my husband would have to be involved to make it a special day so obviously that doesn’t happen. He sucks at that shit. But for Father’s Day, of course, he gets something special because I do something with the kids. But yeah, Mother’s Day is depressing… oh, and then after people ask me, “What did the kids (and husband) do for you for Mother’s Day?” And I usually have nothing to say other than my daughter making me a card because she always does that. Makes me feel like a crappy mom. And there’s my Mother’s Day rant. I thought of writing a post about it but it’s embarrassing because, like I said, it makes me feel (and look) like a crappy mom. 😐

      • Ok, first of all, what the fuck do you mean you’d have to bake them yourself?!? Secondly, YOU shouldn’t be embarrassed about anything. If anyone should be embarrassed it’s your husband. I’m kind of mad for you here. You’re the mother of his children and he doesn’t even make you something sweet or bring you breakfast in bed?!? Ugh!!!! You don’t look like a crappy mom because of him being a crappy husband. I’m sorry. I won’t usually say too much negative about someone’s spouse. I’m not there, I don’t truly know the dynamic. But that makes me mad! I’m probably leaping over a boundary with these comments. I apologize. I hope I didn’t. 😠

      • No, you’re fine. It’s true… he’s an asshat when it comes to this sort of thing (and a few other things). I’ve never had breakfast in bed in my life. I don’t really care about that but it would be nice if he made an effort. Usually there’s something small for my birthday (soon-ish… 6/11)… and small is cool with me due to our financial situation… I don’t need needless money spent on fancy things… it makes a gift a source of stress, not joy. But Mother’s Day is usually crap. Not from my role as a daughter to my mom… but my role as a mom. Like I said, my daughter is all over this sort of thing. If she was older, she’d bake for me or do the breakfast thing. But at 9, I’m afraid for her to use the gas oven/stove. Aaaanyway… so yeah, I kind of hate this holiday. And Valentine’s Day. It IS embarrassing that I’m in this situation and can’t change it. How pathetic, you know?

      • Oh man. I don’t know what to say. I don’t understand. That’s the thing, that it doesn’t have to be some crazy gift to make it meaningful. I agree, simple is good. Just a little effort. I’m sorry. Can you spend the day with your mom?

      • I’d like to but this weekend won’t work out. She will call, though, or I’ll call her, and it will be fine. I do wish I lived closer to her, though. She’s only an hour away but closer would be better. Moving isn’t going to happen though. It’s kind of a semi-realistic fantasy. I have a lot of those. Unrealistic, too. 🙂
