Yes, I think I have corrected the problem of someone putting links in my comment section of this blog. I was told to add word confirmation & it seemed to work. The sad people who sit around trying to mess with blogs & photo pages have depraved minds finding joy in chaos!!!! So, all is well again with the Texas to Mexico blog. I will continue to yammer on about life here, there & continue posting recipes & photos. If the flipping strange links start up again someone better make mine a double. (Tech issues throw me & take some time to work out!)
This new recipe is based on a new favorite Spinach Shrimp salad. We had this in Torreon & thought the home version might be even better...
