This was my lunch the other day. No one was home and I treated myself to this yumminess. IT Guy won't touch seafood of any kind so I got to eat it ALL! Well, I didn't eat it all at once, but at some point I will eat it all. It's SO delicious! You could even cook up some pasta to go with this and it would be great! Seriously...if you are a lover of shrimp and asparagus...make this TODAY!!!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
