Thirty never looked so good!

public embarrassment. check.

The perfect weekend/Grove scenario to leave your 20s behind. check.

Does this say something about us that these
were our two choices for schooling...??

I sure think so.  I think it says that we are FUN! Cheers to a fun 
30 years, B-Dub!  And since I witnessed about half of those I can 
personally attest to the "fun-ness" of them.  Wow, that just made
me feel really old.  But not as old as you. :)  

Happy, Happy Birthday to my most favorite person in the world!

Bang Bang Shrimp (kind of)

Ok, I promised to get this recipe to several of you...

It's not exactly the Bang Bang shrimp that you love but it is close...and it's not loaded with calories.  The big difference is that the shrimp is not breaded.  The sauce is pretty similar, in my opinion, and I like to just have it as the salad dressing for the greens.

Bangin Good Shrimp



  • 1 lb large shrimp, shelled and deveined (weight after peeled)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 3 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 4 tbsp scallions, chopped

In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, Thai sweet chili sauce and Sriracha. Set aside.
Combine lettuce and cabbage and divide between four plates. Set aside.

Coat shrimp with cornstarch, mixing well with your hands.

School, Football and Mini Tax Season

After our busy summer, I was really looking forward to some downtime here in Oxford.  However, with school and football starting up (which completely consumes our Saturdays and turns the weekend into one day really) and us having mini busy season at work right now (Sept 15th and Oct 15th are extension deadlines, remember??), we've turned out to be just as busy this month.

 Thanks to Santa, we have a great cooler and wagon now 
that make getting out to the Grove a piece of cake
