Pasta, Poultry

My son came over the other night to watch the Celtics play off game against the Nicks. Just like during football season, we like to DVR the game and watch it without commercials (who wants to watch commercials?).

Shrimp Scampi – 155

Pastacos – 169


Pasta, Poultry

Sunday night we were getting ready to watch yet another Patriots game (which they won – 😀 ) and I need a meal that is worthy of eating during a football game (which means it needs to have a big fun factor and go nicely with Bud Light). I wanted to make tacos, but I […]
