Today was so beautiful out. I had half a day of work so you would think I was on top of everything but I wasn’t. Christopher and I went shopping for a much needed bookshelf for Haillie. Then I had dinner and cupcakes to bake before I knew it was 8:30p. I need more time. Luckily dinner was a success. I wasn't sure how shrimp in a red sauce would go with my crew but it was a hit. This sauce is so light and not overpowering. It's a must try.
