1 (16 ounce) package linguine pasta
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup no-pulp orange juice
5 teaspoons grated orange zest
5 teaspoons lemon zest
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
5 cloves garlic, peeled
1 pound medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1.Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the linguine, and return to a boil. Cook until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes.
2.While pasta is cooking, combine the olive oil, pineapple juice, orange juice, orange zest, lemon zest, salt, pepper, and garlic in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth.
3.Pour sauce into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and parsley; cook until shrimp are pink and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
4.Drain the linguini, and place on a serving platter. Spoon the shrimp and sauce over the pasta, and top with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese
* the only thing I will do different next time is thicken the sauce with cornstarch.

Today was extra fun for the girls because a co-worker gave them old cell phones. They talked to Daddy, Damian, and Sam the whole way home.

The flowers are made of royal icing, which is rock hard and not very tasty. Well, they aren't bad if you like the taste of sugar. The flowers were made over the course of three weeks. Those things can sit out that long before they are eaten. Ewww.
Anways.. I'm taking a small break from cake decorating classes. Hopefully in May I will start again.
We stayed, and you should too, at the Letson. It's a very well appointed 6 room boutique hotel on the main drag. We opted to stay in one of the rooms facing the street. In the pictures below one was taken looking left and the other right. And that's main street!
I still can't stop daydreaming about living in a town like Bisbee. I would be on cloud nine if we owned one of these 2-story multi use buildings. I could have a little food shop/cafe type of thing on the ground level and we would live on the top floor. We would also have a garden in the back, and a rotating menu. I could wear and apron and ponytail every day!!!
