Meal No. 1748: BBQ Shrimp Risotto

Thursday night was an opportunity to celebrate the birthday of long-time friend and fellow Wake Forest alum Chris Burris. His meal request: risotto. I prepped up some BBQ shrimp and tried a new take on remoulade sauce to round it out, and the meal kicked off with heaping bowls of Caesar salad (but I just put my salad on my plate). It was one of those terrific gatherings of a crew of good friends where we lingered extensively after the plates were cleared.
