Peel & Eat Shrimp

Day 6 – Dinner: The show is over and now the vacation begins. Tonight we we're almost too tired to cook dinner after squeezing in another breakfast at The Maple Tree, floating in the pool, eating lunch, floating in the pool, and then shopping at the outlet mall.

However, the thought of going out for dinner was enough to motivate one last effort to visit the grocery store for supplies. The menu was simple, but I think this may have been my favorite meal so far.

First, a classic steak house salad – The Iceberg Wedge. This version has shredded lettuce with a blue cheese dressing. The shrimp were marinated in olive oil, garlic, and then grilled. On the side – fresh guacamole and chips. To drink – a pitcher of Margaritas.

Best of all... the shrimp were peel-and-eat. In order to maintain some degree of decorum, I started with the salad, using my knife and fork. Once that was done, it was a hands-on affair.
