Hubby feels that a year is a rather lofty goal. We have agreed upon 30 days. After those 30 days we will review and see if we can go another 30.
Grilled Shrimp and Honey Glazed Carrots
I purchased marked down shrimp already on skewers from Kroger and froze them but any garden variety shrimp on a skewer would work. I think it is easier to grill shrimp attached to something!
I seasoned the shrimp with Chesapeake Bay style seasoning, Kroger brand again. This would be the same as Old Bay... but I am cheap!
Grill shrimp on each side for two to three minutes. Serve hot.
For the carrots I boiled 1/2 bag a baby carrots approximately six minutes. The phone rang so give or take a minute. They would have been better steamed, but a las I do not have a steamer.
For the sauce melt one teaspoon of butter in a sauce pan, add three tablespoons of honey and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Mix well. Drain carrots and mix sauce with carrots. Salt and Pepper to taste.
Outcome: Hubby and I really enjoyed this less than thirty minute meal. Easy preparation, easy clean up. We even dined outside.
Child's opinion: Said child felt the shrimp were a little spicy. She wiped the seasoning on her paper towel, ahem napkin. She did eat three servings of the carrots, a new record.
