Shrimp Night

It's funny how life comes together.  The very first time I had lunch with an ex-boyfriend's mother, she said, "I need to teach you our family fried shrimp recipe!" To be honest, I have never fried ANYTHING in my life. The only thing my mother ever fried was chicken and that was maybe once a year. 

Don't get me wrong.  I love fried just as much as the next girl, but never thought about doing it in my own home.  Well, about a month ago, she had me over and I learned the family secret. I can't share it...and that makes this post a little mean.  However, I can tell you that 2 weeks after I learned the recipe, a very pregnant and beautiful friend of mine shared her craving for fried shrimp on Facebook.  I thought, "It is my destiny to make her fried shrimp".

I followed the recipe to a T and they were AMAZING!!!  Wooo hooo!  I served them with a baked potato, baked applesauce, and a salad.  My friend loved them and it made me so happy to see her feeding her craving. 

She sent me the above picture of the table. It's my grandmother's china.  I love it! What a great night to remember.
