The most fun party

and the easiest!  A Shrimp Boil

My niece says it is her favorite meal!

This is probably the most requested meal when all of our family gets together and it is a favorite among friends too.

Everyone leaves with a full tummy and great memories!

Please go here for complete instructions with pictures.

Here is a printable shopping list and instructions!

So if you are looking for a fun party idea for labor day that requires very little labor (no dishes) give a shrimp boil a try!

….and if you really want to party, we like to serve these awesome Margaritas(for adults only) at our Shrimp Boil

Simple and Delicious Margaritas

1 12 oz. can of frozen limeade
12 oz. 7-UP or Sprite (just fill up limeade can to measure)
12 oz. Tequila (again that limeade can is handy)
1 12 oz. Corona or Tecate Beer

Mix and serve over ice! Oh my these are good!

Have a great weekend!
