This year was a year to try new things. Eric left for his brothers leaving me here. When he returned at 6PM We started with Sherri's shrimp-avocado-asparagus-salad as an appetizer. Then made this recipe and ended with Angela's Triple Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pudding Cake. Now we can't move. Movie time!
