For Cousin Larry

For Cousin Larry, originally uploaded by captjoe06.

Yesterday was our 7 year anniversary and we were supposed to go out for dinner but my MIL wasn’t feeling up to babysitting.

On my way home from work I got a message from my cousin Larry. He called to let me know that he got a chuckle out of the tail on the shrimp blog entry titled “Chefs, Don’t Do This…” Larry said in his message that leaving the tail on the shrimp in a messy dish is a pet peeve of his too.

The next call I get is from the Mrs asking if I could pick up Thai food for dinner since she figured we were eating out for our anniversary.

Lo and behold I get to the Pad Thai back to the house and wouldn’t you know it, they left the tail on the damn shrimp!


I had to take a picture for cousin Larry.


  • I’m sure Larry will get a kick out of the picture and may make him a little Gloucester homesick too


  • Joe, if I live to be 100, I will never understand why cooks do this. What, the shell adds more flavor? You almost had the shimp all peeled and you leave a little beelee on the end. Don’t get me started…….


  • I know!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m glad I’m not the only one that feels this way. Must be a menagani thing.
