Today’s Lagniappe:  Shrimp Dip
My Mama used to make a similar version of this that I just loved with tortilla chips, enjoy!

1 can shrimp (4-6 oz.), diced
1 3-4 oz package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup chili sauce
2 teaspoons grated horseradish
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon fresh dill, minced
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix all ingredients together well, adding the shrimp last.

Chill at least two hours or overnight.

    Barn Swallows are fabulous mosquito catchers!!

    We had Barn Swallows at the farm. They built their nests along our 60 foot front porch. I walked every morning and every morning, the Barn Swallows chased me!! We have them at the lake, too. They tend to nest in the bluffs and on the docks. It’s great having them there. We can sit out, very late at night and not have have mosquito bites.

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

    Oh how cute! Don’t you just love looking at baby birds? They’ll be gone before you know it.

  21. Brenda Kula Says:

    What I think is wonderful here (and I always love bird photos!) is that the father is helping just as much as the mother. If only it were that way all the time, huh?
