What do you all think of some of the blog changes? Did you notice I have my own domain now? Woot Woot, high roller.
Still tweaking a few things, so expect a few more changes in the next week or so. If you're one of those people who hates change, and the recent reformatting has severely stressed you out, I offer my deepest apologies.
I want to talk about food.
And you're probably like, what else is new Kait?
I will admit, the 11 miles from this morning has left be a little hungrier than normal this evening, but that's not the main reason I want to talk about food. First off, have I ever told you that I love my kitchen in our new house?
It's marvelous, the island is extremely ideal, and I always feel very homey during my time up there slaving away over the stove.
Saturday night, I created this:
Cheesy Garlicky Shrimp Tacos.
Remember when I told you I want to be a taco connoisseur? I wasn't messing around kids.
The tacos were pretty easy to whip up, so I shall share the recipe:
- 1/2 bag of shaved brussel sprouts (get my from trader joes)
-1-2 tsp of garlic
-1 tbsp of olive oil
-2 wedges of Laughing Cow's light creamy swiss
-6-8 unthawed, pre-cooked shrimp
-3 corn tortillas
-hot sauce to taste.
The method to the madness:
Saute the brussel sprouts with the olive oil and garlic on the stove until they start to
Microwave the corn tortillas if you like them soft, then add the spouts as the 'lettuce' portion of the tacos. Top with however many shrimp you prefer, and squirt some of that wonderful hot sauce on top.
It sounds a little weird, maybe it is, but I thoroughly enjoyed them up on my deck, while overlooking a brilliant sunset.
That was Saturday's creation. Tonight between the hours of 5-7 pm I slaved once again over the oven/stove/crockpot to create several paleo-like, sugar free creations, as I kick off the 21-day sugar cleanse/detox whatever you want to call it. Woot Woot!
I even enjoyed one final beer before kissing alcohol goodbye for the next 3 weekends. My friends think I'm crazy, maybe I am. I like crazy. And I definitely like challenges.
