Nothing but a cute story, and possibly only to me

I found a recipe for Margarita Shrimp I remember having made years ago. I couldn't remember for the life of me where I found the recipe or the exact ingredients, and after doing a web search was pretty convinced that it was lost to me. As I continue to explore my foodie side, I'm looking thru old magazines in the hopes I can recycle those who's recipes I'll never make.

Lo and behold, I found said lost recipe in a Bon Appetit Barbeque! magazine published in 1990! Then I had to try it, just to make sure it was as great a recipe as I remembered (it is). And then I had to get a picture of the dish, cause that's fun too. As U took the first picture, I looked down and saw Ms Jo, the black pud with the sweet petite paws, looking up at me VERY intently. Had to get a pic of that too.

As soon as I was done snapping pics, I gave her a small bite...then thing I knew, her head was plate level and she had a whole piece of shrimp in her mouth. I seem to recall saying that she'd better eat the whole thing. Goodness knows how the cat can eat a whole mouse but not a piece of shrimp. Once I tore the shrimp (making that perfectly clear) into smaller pieces, it was gone.
