I like seafood any time of the year, but I especially like shell fish in the summer. Shrimp pairs so well with so many summer items including fresh veggies, corn and, of course, grilling. Continue reading “Chile Lime Shrimp! Or, I don’t clean trout. That’s why I got married.”
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 think love and strawberries go together. After all, you can dip strawberries in chocolate, or drop them into champagne, or slice them up and serve with ice cream drizzled with chocolate.

I know there are people in the world who do not like shrimp. I am hoping that they are few and far between because, what’s not to like about shrimp? They are pretty. They are a nice color. They taste like the sea. They are a little sweet. They are a little crunchy. They go with lots of things…pasta, rice, risotto, steak, sour dough bread, spicy sauce, butter, garlic, and, of course, wine. And they are good all by themselves. You can also eat them hot or cold. They are truly versatile while being delicious . You can even eat them “cooked” in lime juice (ceviche), without any heat. Amazing little creatures.
