Clam Dip Appetizer

Tastes– Maralyn and I both delight in trying new tastes. Yet sometimes we enjoy the tried and true. One example is the green bean casserole with the French fried onions on top that we sometimes prepare for Thanksgiving. This clam dip first appeared on the Kraft Music Hall of Fame during the 1950s. Within a day, New York City was sold out of canned clams. I still enjoy making this old time favorite. Clam Dip Appetizer Ingredients 8-oz can minced clams – I like Snows 1 garlic clove, cut in half 8-oz. pkg cream cheese – Since this is an original Kraft recipe, I use Philadelphia Brand. 2 tsp lemon juice Dashes of salt and pepper Method Drain clams, reserving 1/4 of liquid. Rub mixing bowl with garlic. Combine clams, clam liquid, softened cream cheese and remaining ingredients, mixing until well blended. Chill. Serve with crispy crackers. Brenda C.

Seafood Dives- Lulu’s Gulf Shores

This Just In… How our team and travel group loves it when we discover a winner. This time it is about one of our special discoveries on the pristine shores of Alabama. After strolling the sugar white sands of Alabama’s gold coast, we were, as usual, famished. Nothing could taste better than the authentic fried green tomatoes, along with beer battered fresh fish washed down with cold draft beer. This is Jimmy Buffet style eating, drinking and singing. LuLu’s at Homeport Marina was  recently crowned one of the top eateries by Coastal Living Magazine. Their readers named LuLu’s one of “America’s Favorite Seafood Dives.” As one of our most innovative cafe finds, LuLu’s offered us more than good old fashioned southern cooking We listened, sang, clapped, and danced with some great musicians. Our happy foodie group mingled with the locals and staff like old friends. I cannot wait to return to the sandy shores, southern cooking, and warm hospitality of Alabama. Congratulations to LuLu’s, a well deserved winner. LuLu’s…at Homeport Marina Gulf Shores, Alabama 251/967/5858 Brenda C.

El Salvador – So Much to Discover

Arriving in El Salvador was easy. We flew TACA and were happy to discover the airport is the best in Central America and is due for a $260 million expansion. Even though Spanish is the language of the country, it is easy to make yourself understood. Many speak English and the guides do a great job. Another giant plus is they use the U.S. dollar as currency. Our first two days were at the beach at the all inclusive Decameron Resort. This was relaxing with everything you would desire and approximately 1 hr, 45 minutes from the airport. The...
