So… you’re feelin’ fancy. You’ve got a bounce in your step. You’ve got a twinkle in your eye.
While the majority of us can barely reach for the queso, chips, and PBR, you’re ready to bust out the big guns… The celebratory feast.
Money is no object when your team is in first, so this one’s for you Broncos and Chiefs fans, and the insane AFC West!
I kid, I kid. I’ll eat shrimp, win or lose, or more importantly on sale, and quick.
This is one of those brilliant recipes that caught my eye for it’s originality, and minimal effort.
Pizza has invaded your shrimp, and you will love it!
Open some cans, crush some garlic, cut some basil, peel some shrimp, toss em’ in a bag, bake, and delight.
The original recipe called for grilling up these bad boys, but I took them to the oven instead. If you’re throwing something else down, I’d recommend the grilling method, over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side, turning once.
It couldn’t be easier – not unlike what I scream at the TV while the Redskins are throwing dump passes that a child could catch!
