Scheduled to make shrimp scampi last night. I searched the "recipes" tag to find my previously-used recipe, and then I saw another entry mention shrimp so I looked at that and it called for a whole tsp of red pepper flakes and I noted that a few shakes of chili powder on top of that was nice and spicy but not unbearable, and on some level I noticed this second recipe was fra diavolo - not scampi - but it did NOT register that proportions might have been different... so we ended up with some pretty spicy sc...

Farmers Market for eggs (free range, 2 dozen for under $8) and got sold some wine and Blenheim's hottest ginger ale. I thought I heard it was a NC product but it looks like their main production is at the "South of the Border" complex, which is also owned by the Schafer family that owns Blenheim.
