Shrimp cocktail

Sarah loved a good shrimp cocktail. She loved a bad shrimp cocktail, too. Whenever one of those shrimp rings with the cup of cocktail sauce was on sale at the grocery store we'd wind up with one in our cart. When we went to some party/reception/function with a table of hors' d'oeuvres she'd judge the food by whether there was shrimp available and by how good the shrimp was (not too spongy and watery, firm, no trace of poop vein).

It was only fitting that the reception after Sarah's memorial featured the best buffet shrimp cocktail I've ever had. I understand she specifically requested a "pile of shrimp" to be served at her memorial reception. I hope she noticed how plump, firm and poopless those shrimp were.

I need to find out who the caterers were because they were terrific.

actually, 'twas i who said sarah's memorial needed to have a mountain of shrimp. :) tho i am sure if she had had time, she would have made a similar demand.

i think jan dutton ordered the shrimp, but ask jonathan. i didn't eat any... i did go to town on the sam's club mini cheesecakes though.

Speaking of bad shrimp cocktail, I remember my mother buying a "6-pack" of it. The shrimp cocktail came in little glasses that could be kept and reused. They were sealed with a metal lid that had to be taken off with a bottle opener. I wonder who made those.

This blogging stuff is obviously confusing for old people. Jonathan-not-Margaret double posted the previous comments. Anyway, Ideal has high quality everything.
