Ruth's Chris New Orleans Style BBQ Shrimp

Happy Friday everyone!  Any big plans for the weekend? We have a pretty uneventful weekend ahead of us, which makes me happy.  Time to do what we want at our own pace.  Love it.

We, like much of the rest of the country are experiencing a cold snap, they are even saying possible snow next week!  I am thrilled that we might get some snow.  It makes me want to dive into the kitchen and make some good ol' comfort food.

This recipe is one that I saw on Facebook, it made me run out to buy shrimp for dinner. We don't eat that much shrimp in this house so when we do, I want it to be very memorable. I would say this recipe fit the bill.  We loved the tanginess of the spices in the sauce.  I will make this again for sure.

I hope you all have a great weekend!
