Walking to the bus stop on a beautiful spring morning, I hear my younger daughter singing Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.
Even though Christmas is clearly over 7 months away, she has Santa and presents still very much on her mind, it would appear.
As much as I couldn’t help, but smile, was also reminded of though how music in general is big in our home.
See music, no matter what time of the year, is a staple for me and my family.
Finally summer and warmer weather, which is truly my favorite time of the year.
As it is indeed getting warmer outside that means more outdoor activities are had and we usually play music outdoors in our backyard, while the girls play on their playground and we hang out on the patio relaxing, grilling great foods, drinking Coca-Cola™ and more.
While we lounge on our backyard patio, we usually enjoy listening to country beach rock, which reminds us of the beach and summer fun.
Also, we have even attended outdoor concerts in the past during summertime.
So again, music plays a big role in our lives all year long, but especially outdoors in the summertime.
But once again so does awesome foods that can be grilled and enjoyed while spending more time outside while again drinking Coca-Cola™ during these outdoor fun-times.
Luckily, while I was recently shopping at our local CVS, I found 20 oz. plastic bottles of the “Share a Coke and a Song” Products purchasing enough Coca-Cola bottles for the adults in my family to enjoy. Honestly, CVS is an absolutely great destination to grab and go 20oz Coca-Cola products.
One such meal we like to make to have with our Coca-Cola is pineapple and coconut shrimp on the grill, which reminds me of the beach, summer sand and just fun times.
See shrimp, in general, happens to be one of my own favorite foods. But pineapple and coconut shrimp on the grill is actually one of my all-time favorite ways to prepare and feast on shrimp here.
So thought I would share my summer, beach and music inspired shrimp recipe here today…

By the way sometimes, while we are eating, I am unsure of a song that may come on while listening and that is when I get my iPhone out to check on Shazam App to help recognize and recall music I may have forgot or even aren’t familiar with. Shazam app is available by the way to download available on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android and other devices to get your Coca-Cola Share a Song.
So hope you will jam out while enjoying summer eats and Coca-Cola, too. Lastly, don’t forget to download the Shazam App to remember all your summer music playlist favorites, as well!
