Out Door Dinning and Chili Lime Shrimp
I’m dreaming of fall and cooler temps as I look at the thermometer that reads 104º degrees. Living in central Texas means summers are HOT!!! So about this time of year I star dreaming of my favorite season. Fall, when I can linger outdoors, much more so than summer. The slight nip in the air coupled with delicious food and great company is something I love. So these pictures are a great inspiration for a fall get together… Cooler days in the coming months are what keep us going through the dog days of summer.

Chili Lime Shrimp
This is a great quick fix dinner or lunch it can even be an appetizer it cooks up quick and taste great. All total it takes a quick 25 minutes to make serve on rice or top a salad it’s a great summer treat that is sure to please.
I made some slight modification to the recipe. I added sweet chili sauce to the marinade. The shrimp is mouthwatering, moist, juicy, succulent and bursting with the wonderful flavors of sweet chili, lime juice and garlic. Make a bunch of these shrimp skewers before the end of summer!!
