Heather’s Favorite Shrimpies (it’s an app for her)

IMG_8996 (563x437)

I honestly have no idea why Heather loves Shrimpies sooooo much. It must be the fact that I’ve been making them for her forever, and they are a throwback appetizer that is part comfort food, part giggle. That must be it! Or it could be the combination of toasty cheese and buttery shrimp with a little kick of pepper…

It doesn’t really matter why she loves them so much, but it does matter that they make her smile. Her smile lights up my world. And they make her friends smile, too. Just look at those adorable smiles. I love them. So make a triple-batch of Shrimpies next time you have peeps over for a football game or a drum circle or your kids come home to visit. Triple. Batch. Make someone you love smile.
