Shrimp Boil

My friends and I hosted a party today for our Mom's group and it was WONDERFUL!  The plan was to be outside with white tables and wildflowers but the weather had a different plan.  We made the best of it and moved the tables indoors to accommodate 20 adults and 10 kids under 2 years old.

The menu:
The Mothership Tomato Salad
Grilled Veggie Salad with Lemon Dressing
Tomato Pies
Shrimp Boil
Pulled Pork
Cole Slaw
Peach Crisp with Vanilla Ice Cream

The main part of the meal was this Shrimp Boil.  You can cook pretty much whatever you want, but the most important part is that you have a super yummy broth to begin with so the food will be infused with the flavor.  The seafood will add even more to the broth once it's added.

Our broth: lemons, onions, garlic, herbs, old bay, jalapenos.

The boil: potatoes, corn, shrimp, mussels, sausage

The dessert: peach crisp

The friends:

I wish you enough!
