At least, partially appeased. Got my act together and put in my AF order; if I don’t expire in a fit of foodie bliss tonight, I will certainly be ready to risk severe artery clogging with a lux mac & cheese tomorrow night.
Full confession: the kids wanted to try a piece, since they dined on other things. Giving up a shrimp was more difficult than I have words to adequately describe. I made them clean things first. I’m a mean mommy. But damn it, this scampi is GOOD. Like, impress your boss/your mother-in-law/people who could find fault with Mister-Fucking-Rogers good. Like, wipe the bowl clean with slices of baguette good. Definitely like lick the bowl clean if you are avoiding bread for the next 30 days (like I am; more like sacrificing bread on the altar of Maybe-But-I’ll-Get-Back-To-You) good.
