Little Matt’s Shrimp Cocktail

My friend Margie made the most delicious Shrimp Cocktail the other day. She got the recipe from Matt Martinez Mex-Tex Cookbook. I’ve halved the recipe and made a couple of minor alterations. It is so easy and so delicious!

An Orange Tabby Cat Themed Birthday Party

For my daughters 6th birthday she wanted the theme to resemble our orange tabby cat Kirby. On top of that, I had this great idea to use ice cream cones and make cupcakes — so, after much research, I decided to make Orange Tabby Cat Cupcake “Cones”. I learned a lot during the process, and hopefully I can share that with you here. Next time I make these (or something like this) I know I will hit a home run. Don’t get me wrong, the kids thought these were GREAT. I just know they can be so much better with the little lessons learned.

I finally came to the conclusion that I was going to have to come up with most of the birthday party “stuff” and the cake myself.
