Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Shrimp Boil (Our Family Favorite!!!)

1 pound of cleaned, de-veined shrimp w/ tails
2 links Cajun smoked sausage cut diagonally
2 T Old Bay Seasoning

Boil 8 quarts of water, add salt and Old Bay Seasoning. Add potatoes and cook for 10-12 min. Add sausage and corn on the cobb and cook for 7 minutes. Now add shrimp and boil another 3-5 minutes (just until pink). Drain and pour contents onto your newspaper lined table. Sprinkle w/ salt and serve w/ butter, Old Bay Seasoning, cocktail sauce and lemon wedges. So delicious!!!

Looks yummy...
I love seeing the variety of menus from moms all over -
down here, we'd have a fish fry instead of a lobster bake. :)
Have a blessed week!

I LOVE old bay seasoning! We do shrimp boils here too! Shrimp is just very expensive right now and I don't buy the frozen stuff! :) Your mac and cheese sounds great too, and easy! :) Thank you for stopping by my place, I've bookmarked you!

That is funny....my cousins couldn't say Kirstin so it became Kiki. Now my nieces and nephew call me Auntie Kiki!! Personally I love it. My inlaws and grandma along with a few aunts call me Kirstie.

I think I trid that thing on tips for bloggers, but for some reason it wouldn't work by just manually entering the certain changes. So I'm not sure what I did...I just need to have some techi person come and help me.
