Welcome home dinner

C has been away at Church camp all week. He was so tired when he got home today, but he wanted his "Welcome Home" dinner. (Its a family tradition that the night before you leave for camp and the night you return, you get to choose the evening meal.)

After walking through Publix and finding that there was zero trout for his favorite pecan crusted trout; he decided on snow crab legs. I did a little happy dance when I discovered that it was only $4.99 a pound! Run, run, run to Publix and stock up your freezer for winter crab soups and dips.

For dinner tonight we had a Summer bonanza-
Snow Crab legs
Baked potatoes
Tomato pie

Tomato Pie

Deep dish pie crust
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
8-10 Compari tomatoes (or 4-5 Roma) sliced and tossed with cracked black pepper
fresh basil finely cut

-Layer 1 1/4 cups cheese in bottom of crust
-lay 1/2 the tomatoes on the cheese
-Sprinkle with basil
-Repeat layer
-finish with cheese

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes ( great as a side but stands alone as a light meal)

And to top all of this yumminess off, we had Homemade Peach cobbler.
As you all can see, Food is my Love Language!
