Ok, a thousand apologies to anyone who reads these. I was unable to post this past Wednesday. I figured instead I’d post a weekend edition instead since more people are home and actually cook on the weekend. Maybe….or not. Either way,
What’s for dinner?
A person on tumblr last week suggested that I do something with shrimp. Normally I don’t buy shrimp for the house because, well, nobody likes shrimp except me unless it’s battered and fried.

I tossed this together and I liked it a lot! Figured hell, if I’m gonna make an entire meal for me, I might well get all the bases covered with good stuff, right? Right.
I made Lime and garlic grilled shrimp skewers with cilantro lime brown rice medley, topped with homemade avocado and mango salsa. I made literally EVERYTHING nobody else in my house would eat. HA! So good too. I need to do this more often.
Recipe? Hmmm…threw shrimp in a bowl, added garlic and herb seasonings in the bowl, and squeezed half to a full lime in (depending on the amount of shrimp you have) and toss. Try to not let them sit too long so the juice doesn’t start ‘cooking’ the shrimp before you’re ready. Skewer and toss on a grill about 2-3 minutes per side.
I had also tweeted a few days ago that as soon as I got home I wanted a cookie; possibly two cookies with some ice cream sandwiched between them. Soooo, I baked two big ol cookies, then grabbed the neopolitan ice cream, and, well…
I don’t know. Are 6″ cookies what you’d consider big?
I do, and unfortunately too much ice cream makes me ill, so I cut it into fours.
So….you’ve seen mine, now show me yours!
What’s on your plate this weekend?
