You’re Hot as H$ll In Texas

June 20, 2010 by

Weatherman says it's going to be another scorcher today ...

A high of 98, and not a cloud in the sky.

And the forecast for the week is more of the same.

Hot, hot, hot.

And while you love the summer ... relaxing with friends, enjoying the pool or the lake, taking vacations ... some days you just need to beat the heat.

Today is one of those days ...

You want something cool and refreshing this afternoon. Maybe something that will pair nicely with a crisp glass of sauvignon blanc, an ice cold Red Stripe, or an icy fresh lemonade.

Something that won't require you to fire up the grill, heat up the oven, or require a lot of effort in the kitchen.

Caribbean Shrimp

Well go ahead and grab your ice cold beverage of choice, because this caribbean shrimp recipe is just what you need.

It not only makes for a beautiful and tasty appetizer, and can also be turned into a healthy dinner by adding a small salad.

And while this recipe calls for fresh mango and papaya, it’s also good with pineapple and other tropical fruits - really whatever you have on hand!

So the next time you're hot as h$ll in Texas, and want something to cool you down, put the drinks on ice and maybe throw on some island wear.  You have the perfect recipe for caribbean shrimp that will leave you feeling cool and refreshed on this hot summer day.

Until our next meal,

Rebecca
