OK, Just call me a dichotomous mess! I loathe the heat, humidity and glaring sun of the summer months. Actually, when May rolls around, I begin praying for the relief of October’s cool deliciousness. HOWEVER, I do enjoy the voice and soul of summer’s culinary treasures…shrimp being at the top of my favorites! p to the s…we enjoy shrimp 12 months of every year thanks to Captain Jim’s who delivers straight from the coast to G’Vegas every other Saturday of the month! I mean it’s just outrageously appropriate people! Just taking heart and getting it
“done” completed…finished…anything besides “done”, please!
