I have to say, this is a favorite of mine! I love shrimp, even if I possibly shouldn't. Be that as it may, I will continue my love affair with Shrimp, even if it causes my some pain and discomfort. This recipe is summer on a plate. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned that I love lime in summer, I will continue sharing my love of lime. This is a bright, spicy, fresh flavor that I crave.
So as I was typing up this recipe I noticed that it was already done before. I thought I would share some fascinating or funny story, but I'm all burnt out right now. That is a story in and of itself.
I have a house guest, who comes with many helpers right now. As he put it, he is reposing at our abode. It's a good thing, and we made sure he would be with us so we can all look out for him, but it is work.
I'm fairly certain I rest and recharge at work more than I do at home now. I love having everyone around, and I can keep up with the pace, but the down times here show me how much I appreciate the rest and the quiet.
The good thing about this meal is that it will be good for him as well, and it's quick to prepare. Now, to plan a heart healthy quick meal for a small army....hmmm any ideas?
Last night was turkey spaghetti with whole wheat noodles and a green salad. Tonight I'm thinking fish or leftovers, but I would really like to use my slow cooker soon to keep things simple. I'm just not sure how I will accomplish that task.
