I could not be more excited that it is finally Friday. Not only because it’s the last day of the work week or because I get to look forward to sleeping in tomorrow instead of being stuck in LA traffic but also because Jason is coming home tomorrow! I haven’t seen him for a month so I am absolute ecstatic that he’ll be flying in Saturday morning.

So instead of staying in, cooking up a storm and blogging all weekend, I will be out indulging in an awesome burger from Father’s Office and a slice of cake (it may be 2-3 slices) from Sweet Lady Jane. I’m sure I’ll gain about 5-10 pounds in a single weekend but it’ll be so worth it. After all, once he’s gone, it’ll be back to cereal dinners.

But before I depart on my fun-filled weekend ahead, I leave you with this sandwich. A glorious sandwich, actually. It’s filled with roasted shrimp with just enough seasoning to give you a little heat, sliced avocado and a generous drizzling of that chipotle avocado mayo I made not too long ago for the Carnitas Avocado Pizza. Yes, you get two doses of avocado because I’ve learned that you can never have too much!

Just be sure to serve this baby on a toasted baguette, although if you do, you’ll definitely be begging for more!
