I recieved this recipe from my Foodie Pen Pal last month, Leah. She blogs over at cupcakes and race dates. She sent me a recipe for shrimp using Old Bay seasoning, which is a big deal in Baltimore, which is where Leah lives.
I enjoyed the shrimp. I will need to tinker with the recipe, which means maybe a different beer. Also, I used deveined shrimp. Because I don’t know how to devein shrimp on my own. I have no idea if that affects the taste a lot. Maybe one of you amazing readers can let me know.
I also went to the farmer’s market and they had this wonderful local tea stand up, Mrs. Kelly’s Tea. I bought two bags for myself and one to send in next months foodie pen pal. I used some of the Earl Blue Tea to make some iced tea and it was quite lovely if I do say so myself!!
