BUTTER FRIED BACON WRAPPED SHRIMPS
(The simplicity of synthesizing meat, seafood and veggies into a prolific festive offering)
Couldn’t help but recall the evening of December 31, 2015.
I asked my vivacious and talented grandkids their wish for New Year’s Eve’s
simple year-breakthrough dish.
“I love bacon” my grandaughter Julles said.
“I go for shrimp” Andee butted in.
The tri-athlete Joax exclaimed, “Me…veggies”
The recipe-developer in me surfaced.
Stone-throw away is a supermart, so off we dashed.
Result is a simple and quick appetizer-side fare they enjoyed creating, frying and munching.
