An unexpected and unusual perk from my hubs

    I got an email from the VP of a major seafood company - the one that supplies PF Chang and Bonefish Grill. They said they love my hubs about seafood, and they'd like to send me some free seafood to sample and come up with a recipe or two. They'll put the recipe(s) on their website. So, I'm like "Yeah! I can do that!" Free shrimp, crabmeat, etc. What's not to love?

        Hmmm...that got me to thinking. Maybe someone will send me some free jewelry, Great Danes, vacations, and horses!

      I wrote a hub about not getting robbed blind by dealerships on auto loans. So far not one dealership has contacted me about a free car...

      Congratulations,  you are THE BEST bar none.   I also LOVE fish in all its forms, baked, grilled, broiled, raw, and fried.   Have got to give up the fried though.   Wish you the VERY BEST.  Maybe you have write a book on this, it will DEFINITELY be a bestseller and I will buy the book.   I have SO MANY cookbooks.

        habeeposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Did you give up fried seafood because of the fat or because of the carbs in the breading?

        1. gmwilliams profile image84
          gmwilliamsposted 3 years ago in reply to this

          I am trying to be healthier.  Got to GIVE UP the fried foods.   It's SO HARD to do....... I am TRYING to give up fried foods because of the combination of fats and carbohydrates.   I find that raw and steamed is so much tastier and healthful....

    That is so awesome, Holle. Do you have BoneFish Grill's in GA?  There's one nearby and we go there quite often.  They also make the best Dirty Martini's.  My son is friends with one of the CEO's of  the chain, Bloomin' Brands. I've met him a few times at various functions. They own Outback, Bonefish, Carabba's, Roy's and Flemings Prime Steakhouse/Wine Bar.  It's headquarted here in Tampa. 

    Keep writing, you never know!! smile

    Way cool, Habee!  You deserve it - you write great hubs about seafood.  And if you 'invent' some new recipes, they will love it!  Maybe I need to write about things like selecting diamond rings and traveling to exotic places.

    That's pretty cool. I have one question however, how did you get that "a" in the corner of your picture? Also what does it mean? I'm new to Hub Pages and was just wondering.
    Thank you

    1. habee profile image89
      habeeposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      The A stands for: (take your pick)

      awesome
      alluring
      adorable
      academic
      achiever
      able
      absurd
      acrid
      affectionate
      adroit
      affable

      Nah...it just means I completed the Apprenticeship Program.

        Habee, I love all your "A possibilities"! Well, sometimes an abbreviation has multiple meanings, so how about we say it means "apprentice" and "adorable" or "achiever"? smile
