A few weeks ago my daughter commented that I didn't have any shrimp in my freezer. How many people keep shrimp in their freezer? Well just in case she and her husband come down for a visit and decide to eat a late dinner, I purchased a bag of uncooked shrimp from Belize from Wegmans....just in case (2 pounds for approximately $15). So plan B dinner has turned into Spicy Grilled Shrimp, a recipe that was submitted to Buon Appétit magazine by Leigh Vickery, in June of 2005.
To go with this I had some Yukon gold potatoes in the basement, so I quickly peeled and sliced those for cooking so I could make potato salad. I also have some white sweet corn that I purchased yesterday from Delicious Orchards. I am going to make Chili Lime Corn using Williams-Sonoma's Chile-Lime Rub and their recipe.
Just for the heck of it, I prepared chocolate chip cookie batter yesterday, so I might as well bake those off.
