An expensive piece of candy

I love chocolate.

I love caramel.

And I love chocolate covered caramels.

One piece of this cost me $90.

SourceHow?  I usually savor a piece of candy rather than chew it.  I try to let it melt in my mouth so it lasts and lasts.  But Tuesday afternoon I bit into the candy and chewed it.  A crown on a tooth popped off!  Fortunately, I didn’t damage the crown where it needed to be replaced.  The dentist just cleaned it up and cemented it back on…for $90.

Another make-it-up-as-I-go dinner

Mr. Aitch and I had shrimp on the grill Saturday night and had some leftover.  Not enough for another meal but enough for something.

So I put on my thinking cap and came up with a version of Shrimp Alfredo using ingredients that I had on hand: low-fat cream cheese, Romano cheese, milk, garlic powder, red peppers, and egg noodles.  And of course, the shrimp seasoned with Old Bay.  We also had a fresh garden salad.

And wine.  Always wine.

I decided to write down the recipe after we tasted it.  Yummy!
