Last weekend, we went down south to New Port Richey for a family reunion and the Chasco Boat Parade. Mrs. FC is from an old Port Richey family. My brother-n-law has a house on the Pithlachascotee river, so we meet there, eat, watch the parade, eat some more, and visit. Lots of cousins running around and lots of good food. Everybody brings something. My niece brought these cupcakes with a single fresh strawberry inside ... OMG!
I made a little 4x4 collage of some of the days events. Click to enlarge and don't miss the "Parade Officials" pic. Oh, and since you're going to ask anyway, my niece with the tall hair is wearing an empty water bottle inside that doo. She knew it would get the attention of the bead throwing floaters and it did!
This is my first plate. Can you tell we're southern? Fried chicken, Fried mullet, Fried mystery item, Fried hushpuppies, baked beans, datil pepper relish (we brought that) and grits. My second plate had a generous helping of Pappas Restaurant Greek salad, so I did get some greenery in there later.
