i like to make lists while i doodle.

It all started with a large bunch of cilantro. I'm addicted! But it was starting to wilt faster than I could consume it, so I looked up a recipe on my favorite cooking website (which can be found here) and whiped up one delicious meal for Lou and I..Tequila Shrimp! I substituated half of the tequila for Corona and added some chopped tomatoes, onion and red pepper. And the juice of one lime at the end. MMM. The lime really gave it a nice punch. Next time instead of putting it over angel hair pasta I think I'll try rolling it up in tortillas. The mixture was good, but not as saucy as I thought it was going to be to cover pasta.

I didn't end up making guacamole like my list might lead you to believe. (hence the question mark..) I forgot to grab some avocados while I was at the store. Ah time.

I'll probably be working on expanding the idea on that sketch I made for the rest of today. And then tomorrow work on some more Plini creations. What's next on the list of series? I'll give you a starts with a P and rhymes with Guy Mices.

You're a fabulous cook too. You're the whole package Jamie. Sweet, pretty, talented and a great cook. Does Lou know how luck he is?

I didn't get the hint. It's driving me crazy.

And your sketch is so cute!

I love the drawing with the recipe.

I'm not much of a seafood eater, but that dish does look delicious. If you're up to it, care to share your guac recipe? I'm searching for a good one and haven't had any luck.
