New favorite find! I have no idea whether this product is called “Low-In-Carb” or “Let’s Skip the Sandwhich,” I’m assuming the latter. Either way, they are the first wraps I have found in a long time that are comprised of recognizable ingredients. I use them as tortillas too, as most store bought tortillas are full of trans-fats and chemicals. Bonus points for 60 calories and 7 grams of fiber.
If you are in the mood to make your own tortillas, I’ve got you covered too. Bring out your inner Mexican, girl! Or uh, boy!
Let’s talk dinner time, the best and worst time of the day.
Rarely do my family meals venture off the path of least resistance, (from the kids, that is). I tend to make meals that I know everyone will eat. Sometimes though, I get tired of it and willingly make two dinners, one for the kids and one for Jy and myself. If you are tired of eating all foods covered in cheese or with pasta, this recipe is meant for you.
I’m always willing to drop $8 on some type of rice bowl when I’m out. Why don’t I ever make my own at home? You just KNOW it’s going to be cheaper, often times you are missing that extra oomph of flavor though.
Enter in, Thai Shrimp Bowl, a dish for suburban folks with limited access to food which is not authentically Americanized. Mouthful? Yes, yes it is. Best part is that most of the ingredients can be used along with a couple eggs and some soy sauce to fry the kids (or picky spouse) up some fried rice.
This photo here is before Sriracha drizzle, which is totally essential by the way.
*DAMY friends, if you swap out the rice and peas for cauliflower and you’ve got yourself a DAMY approved recipe for meal 4!
Big props to Gina’s Skinny Taste for the original Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp recipe![edamam-recipe-recipe:6]
Take a peek at my photos from a fun little cooking night I went to, hosted by Shannon Moe Cooks. Our menu for the night:
Simple green salad with fresh squeezed citrus vinaigrette
Flank steak with annatto and honey sauce
Roasted chayote squash with avocado
Vegetarian (eggplant) meatballs with a romesco sauce
Sautéed rainbow chard with garlic and raisins
See that red on the steak? It’s from annatto, which I totally can’t wait to get my hands on and blog about. You may recognize the chayote from my Thanksgiving practice table too, new and fun! I’ve given my taste buds a venture out of my suburban lifestyle lately, and it has been tasty!
Ok, so the real reason you read this post. I want to give someone $50, scratch that, Fresh & Easy wants to give someone a $50 gift card to buy some groceries.
