2 MOBs + 2 FOBs = 1 Fun Night

Our story begins about 30 years ago... John and Dave started IBM in June 1981....a couple years go by... John and I get engaged, we tell Dave and MJ and unknown to us, they are engaged; then we say we are getting October 8, they respond they getting married October 15 same year, they come to our wedding; we are in Jamaica and can't go to theirs.  Now 30 years later we have daughters getting married a week apart only this time their daughter is getting married first!  Exciting times!

Last night after the guys did some power raking, we had Dave and MJ over for dinner.  First we needed some tasty beverages:
Decisions, decisions

Next we started with a salad that my friend Sue recommended from Pampered Chef - called Pecan-Crusted Mozzarella Salad.  Recipe here

The mozzarella is served over spring greens with a balsamic vinaigrette.  This was delicious!
I knew I wanted to make something meatless - so I tried my hand at shrimp tacos.  I marinated shrimp in melted butter, cumin and chili powder and then grilled

I've seen shrimp tacos served with a coleslaw blend, a creamy cilantro sauce and grated cheese.  I kind of made it up as I went along so when I make again, I'll figure out the recipe and post

MJ provided a wonderful dessert - Boston Creme Pie.... (and I used up whatever paper plates I had in the house)
