Shrimp! Shrimp! Shrimp!

This is a first in our house. Shrimp was actually bought and made for dinner.We've had shrimp in our house before but it's because someone else bought it and made it for dinner. Funny story behind this shrimp too. Alex bought the shrimp and since he knows nothing about shrimp he bought what looked prettiest (pretty color, no shell, de-veined). The shrimp he bought was cooked shrimp. Bless his heart!
