  3. Way back at the beginning of my blog, I wrote a post about the search for the Holy Grail...at least a decent chicken nugget recipe. I think I will try yours and see if it will satisfy my picky Jonathan!

    The coconut shrimp looks wonderful. I'm not sure about red hot in a drink with grapefruit and vodka.
