The other night, BFF mentioned being hungry for chicken and dumplings. That sent me looking to past blog posts to search for my yummy recipe. After several friends asked for the how I made it, I decided it was time to revisit it on my blog. This is truly a delicious meal for a cool evening.
BFF and I have been doing studio art that is appealing to both of us. A few pieces are worthy of hanging in our homes, but framing is just so darn expensive!

I made the yummiest salad this week using a recipe from the great cooking magazine, Louisiana Cookin’. (For the original recipe, see www.louisianacookin.com/shrimp-mango-ceviche/.)

Plus, it had mayo, which no self-respecting ceviche should have. I made a few tweaks to the recipe and renamed it “Tropical Shrimp Salad” to better represent what I think the salad should be called.
