hey #stackedconfidentialconfidantes it's friday!!!! what are you all cooking today? i remember when i was a child we had fish on friday's, usually with a side of meatless spaghetti & broccoli. if it was up to my mother we would have chinese take out or pizza. living in queens, new york we always had plenty of food options!!! as i've grown up & have children of my own, i often find myself trying to recreate flavors and dishes that i've had over the course of my forty years of life. the food journey has been amazing & i'm grateful to god that i had a cooking grandmother, & a mother that preferred eating out. balance folks... my taste buds have evolved & its been fun trying all kinds of new things. i'm looking forward to sharing those things with you. over the past few months i have been watching @bloveslife on youtube & following her on instagram @bloveslife2. as a fellow seafood lover, i really enjoy watching her videos. i can't wait to film my first mukbang!!! my daughters have agreed to participate & i couldn't be more excited! in the meantime, i'm going to post some pictures of the sauce i made that was inspired by @bloveslife2 & our most recent seafood boil that we had. the ingredients for both are listed below. if you give it a try, please let me know! i would love to hear your feed back. blessings!

seafood boil ingredients
start by boiling water in 16 -20 quart stock pot
add 2 oz of old bay seasoning & 1 oz lawry's garlic salt into the water
while you're waiting for the water to come to a boil, rinse off shrimp, scallops & corn. rinse potatoes and cut them up.
add potatoes first, let them cook about ten to fifteen minutes.
add corn. cook for 7 minutes. pull corn and potatoes out together & set aside.
add crab legs they only take about 7-10 minutes because you are just heating them through. remove the crab legs & set aside.
next put the shrimp and scallops in the boiling water. they take no longer than 5 minutes as the water is boiling and swirling around.
pull them out and set aside.
put the broccoli in the water for 3-5 minutes pull it out after that so it still has a crunch to it. set aside with the rest of the cooked ingredients.
toss the seafood, potatoes and vegetables in the sauce, serve & enjoy
