I like giving the classics a personal touch so I turned this afternoon munch into "Happy Hour", with a shot of Skyy Vodka some crushed pineapple and a few fried bagel chips.
Since we are in the middle of Summer we are in the middle of Avocado season. That means its on with Guacamole. Here is a tip add steamed Cauliflower and Broccoli to add an extra punch of healthy living and enjoy life.
This one's for the ladies. If you want to sneak a purely trendy vegetarian option to the football weekend spread here you go. Don't say a word just watch as they are devoured by the self confessed meat eaters.

A beautiful sunset assisted by the smoke of a local wild fire and a shot of Cazadores Tequila. The view from the Redondo Beach Pier cool as an evening breeze the beach was packed but you wouldn't know it from this photo. Inland temperatures well over 100 degrees this day.

On a recent visit to "Ports of Call" San Pedro, California I was reminded of how similar coastal communities are to one another. The thing that ties them all together is seafood.

It certainly aided me in running the most popular casino buffet on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
