The weather has been unbelievable the past few days. Sunny, low 90°'s. Too good to stay inside. So I've been eating lunch outside. I pack my super cool Bento Box and set myself up in the sun. A yummy lunch and my 15+ minutes of Vitamin D can't beat that.

Shelly's Mexican Shrimp Cocktail
1 pound Large Cooked Shrimp (21/25 count), peeled, deveined, tails off
1 Avocado, diced
1/2 cup Pico de Gayo (refrigerated salsa section)
shot of Veggie or Tomato Juice
sprinkle of Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
Toss all ingredients together. For parties I like to spoon into margarita glasses.
Speaking of my super cool Bento Box... it just got cooler. Check out what I am treating myself to for Christmas. If I can wait that long. There's free shipping right now so I may just grab it. I just can't decide between the flowers and this one.
I'm glad I took advantage of the sunny days this week I hear these times they are a-changing. There's some drizzle in the forecast. I hope it clears up for Saturday. Join me at the annual Tom's Farms Event. Meet new friends, catch up with old pals. Lunch, shopping (Mmmm gourmet cheese shop, veggie stand, the best guacamole), hanging out, support group meeting, protein exchange, clothing exchange. We're in the picnic area. Starts at 9 AM. Contact Katt for more info. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
