Happy home of friendship

Are you sick of shrimp recipes yet? I sure hope not, because in case you haven't picked up on the fact yet, we eat a lot of shrimp. It's just so freaking easy. I honestly can't think of an easier throw together dinner. It's especially great for last minute company. I love to entertain, and I love to have people over and it makes it that much easier when I can just throw something on the grill pan and have dinner ready in a matter of minutes. It makes me look good - Ah yes, Thatgirl is truly spectacular, she can throw together dinner at a moment's notice. It keeps them coming back for more again and again.
