Puff usually wears his Depends when he goes out for the evening...they're more absorbent than regular cloth diapers.

Dinner is at 8:30 we made it a later supper so we can actually have a conversation after the children go to bed.

Here is the basic recipe I made for the shrimp:

from License to grill Rob Rainford

Smoked Proscuitto Wrapped Cheesy Shrimp
Yield: 6
Ingredients:
Smoked Proscuitto Wrapped Cheesy Shrimp

* 12 6/8 shrimp, peeled and deveined
* 1/2 cup cream cheese (125ml)
* 1/2 cup goat cheese (125ml)
* 2 tbsp chives, chopped (30ml)
* 2 tbsp roasted garlic (30ml)
* Salt and pepper to taste
* 12 sheets proscuitto, thinly sliced


Directions:
Smoked Proscuitto Wrapped Cheesy Shrimp

1. In a medium bowl, mix cheeses, chives, roasted garlic and salt and pepper. Combine well.
2. Butterfly the shrimp using a sharp knife (cut shrimp lengthwise ¾ of the way though, so shrimp opens up like a book.)
3. Place 1 tablespoon stuffing inside the shrimp, spread evenly.
4. Wrap proscuitto all around shrimp, ensuring the stuffing is not exposed.
5. Drizzle shrimp with oil.
6. Preheat barbeque to medium heat.
7. Place shrimp on well oiled grill.
8. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until prosciutto is crispy and shrimp is no longer opaque.
9. Remove from heat and serve immediately.

Dinner was a blast had a wonderful time and forgot totake a lot of pics. So sorry.

Here are some though. I did not completely forget. (Although I think the cranberry orange vodka tini's may have had some impact on y ability to remember them)
