It was such a simple thing to make, and incredibly delicious. We didn't even need rice or anything, just the shrimp and salsa. In fact, you are going to be tempted too add other ingredients ... DON'T. We opted for keeping the jalepeno seeds in, and it was spicy! You definitely could leave them out if you want a "reasonable level." Mary provided some nice natural decoration to the patio dining environment.
Yum!The walk up the hill gets easier and easier ... especially post-cone. And the reward at the top is quite nice also: a view of Mt. Tam during sunset. (Good eye Mary, finding this shot.)
So, the spicy shrimp did leave us needing something sweet. And with Dad's birthday, it was also a time for celebration. We decided to checkout the ice cream shop at the bottom of the hill. Now, I talk about this hill a lot. It is the hill I walk down to get to my bus stop and must walk up to return home. Mary usually meets me, so we can endure it together. In the picture below, you get an idea of the incline. This is actually only part of it, the substantial part ... but only a part:
The ice cream joint was a step above a lemonade stand. A little place where we listened to "play that funky music" and got one scoop for $3 even. Sure we could have gone to Bell Market across the parking lot and gotten a whole gallon for cheaper, but we all know where that leads to ... ice cream EVERY night.
