Creamy Orange Shrimp with Orange Rosemary Potatoes and Cesar Asparagus Salad

This was all my boyfriend on this one. He was in the mood to cook and felt like something a little different. I must say the creamy orange shrimp is delicious and was favorite dish of the night!

Over the weekend, we had some nasty rain roll through and it decided to wreck havoc on my rosemary bush. Granted it is large and could probably use a trim, but I opened the front door to find this.
