This afternoon was absolutely fantastic!! It was so nice out that Mikayla and I took Rocket and Pocket for a walk, then invited to neighbor girls over... Carol (Mikay's friend from school) and Ellie (a new girl from next door). They came over and played with all of our outside toys for about 2 hours! It was so nice to finally enjoy our backyard. I took full advantage, bringing out the laptop and sitting in my new plastic Adirondack chair.
Rocket and Pocket also enjoyed the afternoon outside. When it was time for dinner I decided to make something with Shrimp. Here in the Vottis household, we all love shrimp! I have been craving shrimp scampi for a while, but its so terrible for you that I couldn't force myself to make it... except tonight.
I started out by putting up a pot of water to boil. Then I took one stick of butter (yeah, yeah, that's what I said) and put it in a saucepan, along with white cooking wine, olive oil, garlic, spicy mustard, parsley and lemon.
