To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is one of our all time favorite meals to prepare
on a Saturday night!
I can tell you I have served this dinner on many, many occasions!
There is almost nothing better than fresh Gulf shrimp
prepared with spicy seasonings, fresh lemons and garlic!
Be sure to serve these shrimp with hot french bread
so that you can "sop" up all that delicious marinade!
