Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

 Crabmeat Newburg Recipe
What is newburg? First, it is really not anything 'new' at all. According to The Nibble, "Newburg or Newberg is a very rich sauce of butter, cream, egg yolks, cognac, sherry, cayenne pepper and nutmeg, to which cooked shellfishcrab, lobster, scallops, shrimp
is added, alone or in combination." Keep those saucy thoughts in mind, but don't stop there!

AND September 25 is... 

National Lobster Day* 

*National Lobster Day was moved to September 25th in 2015 by an act of the U.S. Senate. The resolution was introduced by Maine Senators Susan Collins and Angus King, after no one could find any official approval of the National Lobster Day celebrated on June 15th. However the old National Lobster Day, June 15th, is still being widely celebrated today. Keep the old and the new, we say. Here’s more information.
