Eating Creatively- Part 2

Another one of my favorite meals at the beach is our annual "Shrimp Dump."  We work all day preparing fresh shrimp, onions, corn on the cob, sausage, potatoes and bread for the feast.  This year Aunt Beth provided watermelon buckets for dessert and used shells for the butter and cocktail sauce!  Isn't she creative?
No utensils needed for this meal!  We dump it all right on the table then when the feast is over we just roll up the plastic table cloth... easy peasy!
I didn't get a picture of us all eating because as we say here, you have to "grab it and growl" to get the food you want before it's gone.  I had to put that camera down pretty fast!
A two part post about the way we eat during our beach week would be incomplete without including the Moravian Blessing that we all say,
"Come Lord Jesus, our guest to be
And bless these gifts bestowed by thee
Bless our loved ones everywhere 
And keep them in thy loving care.
Amen."
