Easy Shrimp Rolls

Easy Shrimp Rolls

A family that we know very well visited the East Coast this last month.  They took lots of pictures of their trip which we enjoyed seeing on Facebook.  They did make a stop in Maine and began showing photos of lobster rolls.  I couldn’t get my mind off lobster rolls (especially after seeing so many pictures), so I thought we should make them with our own spin.

***I originally wrote most of this post in Mid-March, but was unable to get Y!C!’s recipe and then I forgot about it until yesterday.  So, I am going to post it anyway.  Note that our activities occurred in early to Mid-March.***

Our patience is being challenged.  If you want to read about the details, you can go here: Keeping It Midcentury

We are still waiting to move in to the Mid Century Modern home (affectionately known as The Money Pit) that we are remodeling.  The only items left are putting together the Easy Closet System  (looks complicated) and getting our brand new Induction Range working.  We haven’t even had a chance to use it yet (except once when we boiled water.)  And now it doesn’t work, even though the repairman has been there three times and plans on coming out this week.  Sigh.  If it’s not one thing, it’s another.  (If you want to read about our remodeling “adventures” you can find it here.)
