Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 81

Recipe 114
Thai Shrimp with Basil
Matt rating ****

Ingredients used:

Vegetable oil
1 1/2 pounds shrimp
Salt and course black pepper
Fresh ginger
Red pepper flakes
Red bell pepper
Iceberg lettuce

I know you are stunned that I made two seafood dishes in one week, considering Matt's aversion to seafood, but in between this meal and the meal I blogged of before, we went away over the weekend.  We had SO much heavy, greasy, bad-for-you food that we both just wanted something light.  Shrimp is one of the seafood-type foods that Matt doesn't mind, although he will always pick steak or fettuccine over shrimp every time.  This had quite a kick to it, considering the only real spice in it was a little bit of red pepper flakes.  This recipe can also be used on chicken or pork and will be just as fabulous, I'm sure!
