    What are five things you'll never be without in your beach fridge? Ours are:

    * Frozen limeade for World's Best Margaritas
    * Deviled eggs
    * Our favorite coffee blend, Graffeo, brought from home
    * Key Lime Pie from the D&K Cafe
    * A big jug of sweet ice tea

    Yes, we'll be doing lots of jello shots in a couple weeks if that Red Tide doesn't go away!

    Michigan but someday in SoWal as well
    I make sure I keep some stuff in a locked pantry for when I/we go to the cottage and need a quick cheap meal and am too tired to go grocery shopping, especially after arriving from a flight and I'm in a hurry to get to the cottage/porch/beach. I keep cans of tuna, cans of anchovies, jars of olives, dried tomatoes, dried Italian herbs, some hot pepper flakes, salt and pepper, olive oil, pasta, and a bottle of wine at the cottages. Then, when I'm there alone and want a quick but delicious meal, I make pasta puttanesca. I don't make it at home so it always seems special when I'm at the cottages. It works well for dining alone or with guests (although I ask guests if they want the anchovies).

    I love jello shots, but have never made them. Got a favorite recipe you'd like to share?

    We will be in Seagrove 10/8-10/22 and can't wait to get there. Last year we only got 2 days worth of SoWal before Ivan ran us out. Hope for better weather this year!

    Also, bringing the motorcycle for the first time. Anybody down there ride? :D

    You better cover the face unless you want to eat Love Bugs.

    I have never made Jello shots (stop laughing, I am serious), but you probably just add vodka or rum to the jello in place of water.

    Very good -- looks like you covered the 4 basic food groups.


    When we go, we have to keep our beer in coolers - the fridge just isn't big enough to hold it all.

    Beer in cans for the beach and pool- beer in bottles for on the balcony and inside the house - water - bottle of wine - milk - caffeine diet coke.

    Seems we are always running to buy more beer and water - but never any food.

    Your fridge is EXACTLY like ours! Though every now and then we'll throw in a cup or two of yogurt (Just so we can feel virtuous.) :clap_1:

    Don't ever eat the whole pan if you make the jello shots in a pan, because you will be:puke: much like I did one time!!

    always: water, gatorade, beer, a pack of publix veggie sushi (to be eaten before sunset dog-walk on the beach) , mustard (for crab cakes & sandwiches), eggs/tortillas/greenchilies (for breakfast tacos). maybe an orange-cranberry muffin from Beach Java. everything else varies.
