    I made this and took it to a party to contribute. Secretly I hoped it looked too weird, that no one would try it snd I could eat it all. No such luck. I heard peopke remarking on it and thought nah I’m hearing things. Can’t be my dish. I only recently began cooking with your help and one other gal I enjoy. Next day my friend says many of her guests want the recipe. ….I happily gave your site.

    This is a great recipe for shopping at Costco. They have the fresh sugar snap peas, shrimp and pistachios. The rest…ehh. Either you will have it around or you can get smaller quantities elsewhere. It sounds wonderful!
