I am having a tough time today. I had to place my father into hospice care yesterday.

Still rather raw — I will have a post about it at a later date.

So. today is National Shrimp Day. I have written about my love/hate relationship with shrimp. Even if I can’t eat it, there are plenty of people who love shrimp.

Here’s a different recipe for shrimp lovers…

Shrimp Saganaki is a quick and easy Greek appetizer that is often served with crusty bread to scoop up the savory tomato sauce. For a gluten-free main course, serve on a bed of cooked zucchini noodles, rice, or quinoa instead.
