You all know by now that I love babies, right?? Which is why I can never turn down an opportunity to celebrate a fellow food blogger, and her little baby boy that will soon be joining her family. I’m so excited to say a big “SURPRISE!” to Liz from The Lemon Bowl today, as a bunch of us have gathered together to throw her a surprise virtual baby shower!

It's a baby shower!

And do you know what the best part is about throwing a virtual shower? Everyone is invited!! We were all asked to bring something with lemon as one of the ingredients – Liz is The Lemon Bowl, after all. Seeing that lemon is one of my very favorite flavors ever, this was pretty easy for me. (And I can’t wait to try some of the other contributions!!)

I have been looking around in my archives a lot lately, and I realized that I used to make shrimp and fish a lot, and that has kind of disappeared in the last couple years. I don’t know if it’s because I have kids now and have been afraid that my kids won’t eat it, or if I just got caught up in chicken, but I truly love any and all seafood, and I think it really needs to make a comeback here. Starting with this dish.

One of my favorite things about shrimp is how easy and fast it is to cook. This meal is super easy. But the great thing about it is that it looks fancy. This is totally date-night-in food. Or impress the company food. Or invite my girlfriends over for dinner food. And maybe my favorite – celebrate the upcoming birth of a baby boy food. No matter what you serve it for, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. And don’t discount the kids – Abbi seriously would have probably eaten every single shrimp out of the pot if I would have let her. If I knew how much she loved shrimp, I would have probably started adding it to the menu more often sooner!!

Congratulations, Liz. I’m so very excited for you, and can’t wait for your little bundle to arrive!!
