Hi there. I was wondering whether you would like to link this in to Food on Friday: Prawns and Shrimp and other spicy stuff. This is the link . You did some time ago link in a great dish to Food on Friday: Fish and seafood. I now realize that I haven't been following your blog. Sorry about that. I have signed up to follow now. It would be great if you followed Carole's Chatter back. Have a super week.
