I NEVER photograph my food but I had to make an exception here.  You can tell I don't know what I am doing either because I took the picture when I had finished.  But that was what was left when all was said and done. 

My wife Erica and I went to dinner at Fran Cann's house.  Yes that is her name.  We were there to celebrate her daughter and our friend Meagan's birthday.  We had the shrimp scampi and it was amazing.  She made it for us all last year too and that was amazing.  The only scampi I've ever had that was better was the one my wife made for me back in the summer.  It is easily one of my top five favorite foods.  Fran said she thinks she made it too salty this time around but I liked it just fine.  When you have a meal that good you would think that would be the star of the night and you might not remember anything else about the evening but not at the Cann house.  The were more than one of two memorable moments.

This is Fran and yes she is as bad ass as she looks.  You should have heard what she was saying right before I snapped this photo.

This is her husband Joe lovingly referred to as "Mongo."  He is passed out and still managing to not spill his drink.  He was all tuckered out from watching the Jets blow a big game and playing referee to the dinner conversation.  Great people, great food and a lot of laughs.  It was a pretty sweet way to wrap up the holiday season.
