About a week ago
the library volunteer brought in some recipe books
for the moms to look at.
I spied a dish I thought looked delectable.
I didn't have a chance to write it down
because I was chasing Monster and entertaining Roly Poly.
However, the ingredients were easy enough to remember,
and I knew the changes I wanted to make
(eg no jalapenos because I don't do spicy).
Also, I rarely accurately measure for dinner,
so no measurements needed.
This is how the meal turned out.
Looks DELICIOUS, right?
Okay, so here's what it includes.
about 20 shrimp sauteed in oil.
I used Wild Tree garlic and lemon grape seed oils
(about 1/2 tbl each)
I also added about 1/2 tbl minced garlic.
4 Kiwis chopped
about 1/8 c. Cilantro finely chopped
Juice of 1 small lime
Mix all of this together and serve on top of the shrimp.
For a side dish I made a simple cold lentil salad.
Prepare lentils according to directions on pkg.
*remember not to add salt to boiling water because it will toughen the lentils
Let cool in fridge.
Add the juice of 1/2 lemon.
Add 2 garlic cloves minced
mix and serve.
This simple salad was surprisingly good.
Lentils are also EXTREMELY good for you.
This is a GREAT, low calorie meal.
Plus it is really fresh and summery for the months to come.
