Shrimp Bowl

I came across this quote in an op ed piece about the passing of Mary McGrory…
“Always approach the shrimp bowl like you own it.”
Wrote it down on a scrap of paper which has been within an arms reach of my easel for three years or so…
while I worked on how to incorporate this into my recipe series.
Until I looked down the other day to see the good dog Gulliver munching on something white.
(Her favorite treat is a tissue)
Caught it in time to see it was this note and decided the muse had spoken.
I’m listening now.
