Mama Blues Shrimp Patties

During Daughter Katie ‘s visit, she practised one of her hobbies- cooking! The summer time is her traveling time and while she visits friends and family, her car is a traveling apartment as she moves from place to place with her cooking equipment, spices, whatever she needs to create cooking masterpieces. While she was here, we had Penny and Douglas for dinner and she made a great dish from a super website for finding receipes- really a social network that anyone can join and share , discover and even organize receipes! http://www.bigoven.com/ 



She made shrimp cakes with wild Georgia shrimp fresh off the boat docks. We all raved about how incredible these were! Enjoy the pictures and the receipe!
