Caesar Salad Recipe with Shrimp & Quinoa

This shrimp Caesar salad recipe begins like any other Caesar salad with Romaine lettuce and Parmesan . Shrimp, quinoa take it to a whole new level.

A Caesar salad recipe that's kicked up with shrimp and quinoa! The only thing I find more disgusting than a cooked, eaten chicken carcass is a lobster carcass.  Not that I've eaten a whole lobster or anything.

 Grilled shrimp nachos for those nights when you don’t want to turn on the oven!  The grill does the work, you enjoy the meal!

We went to the "low country" for vacation.  The low country being South Carolina.  Apparently all of Ohio vacations there.  We felt right at home.   I think us northerners really annoy the locals, but I'm ok with that. This was the first time my 3 little stooges saw the ocean.  The first thing they did when we arrived on the soft sandy beach was flop down and make sand angels.  They looked like three pale starfishes! I love beach vacations! … Continue reading →

Greek Shrimp Scampi

Well what do you know, it's Monday again!  Funny how that day sneaks up on us so quickly.  Honestly, we just had a Monday!!!  Busy week.  Busy weekend.  Although we did spend time at Lego Fest on Saturday.  If you have kids, especially boys, then you know ALL ABOUT LEGOS!!! My gosh they've taken over our house.  My  son, who is 7, is obsessed.  I mean obsessed!  I try not to think about the how much money we have tied up in Lego's.  It would only … Continue reading →
