Cool Supper On a Hot Day

I love shrimp any way it comes. Not only is it delicious, it’s so fast to cook! On a hot summer day, shrimp is a great option for supper because the oven will only need to be on a short amount of time!

My sister sent her some lovely berries that were so flavorful and fresh.
