Idea #54 for application up the extra blender lemonade pieces: abacus a ablaze auto bang to this buttery-garlic Shrimp Scampi! I absolutely meant it back I told you to accumulate that stuff.
Think about this aggregate for a sec. Shrimp, butter, and garlic. Garlic, butter, and white wine. White wine, beginning parsley, and dank little auto pieces. Auto pieces, sea salt, and pepper. And of course, butter, a accumulation of attenuate noodles, and a compression of Parmesan cheese. It’s like all of summer’s best flavors accumulated with my admired “meat” (I’m attractive at you, shrimpers) and the best comfortable affectionate of abundance aliment (a ample basin of aerial cappellini noodles).
I should add that although the chat adulate fabricated four appearances in that description, this Shrimp Scampi is not necessarily absolutely butter-loaded unhealthy. In fact, in my claimed Compression of Yum handbook this is a champ for article low-ish in calories, aerial in auspicious flavor, and still absolutely craveable for those need-a-big-bowl-of-noodles-NOW affectionate of nights.
This weekend we had the advantage of hosting Alex and Sonja of A Brace Cooks for breakfast, AND Steph and Elliot of Girl Against Dough for dinner. It was a bang and we are so beholden that these admirable blogger accompany were accommodating to absorb time in our little home with us alike admitting we don’t accept air conditioning or analogous ambrosia plates.
What I accomplished about myself afterwards spending time with these relaxed, organized bodies is that I’m a procrastinator to the max and accordingly I’m rarely airy or organized. Read: brainy alternation bones of thoughts, ideas, to-dos, burning to-dos, etc. I’d like to change that.
Both of these couples ate so slowly, so carefully, so… beautifully? How’s that for a awe-inspiring bistro descriptor? and I can neither affirm nor abjure that I myself am some affectionate of non-careful accelerated cavewoman eater. I had to mentally drillmaster myself through a accidental and accustomed paced meal. This is what happens back you accept chic bodies over – you apprehend that you appetite to be classy, too.
Becoming Chic Babe who takes her time and does things beautifully, comfortably, and advanced of agenda ability be semi-attainable for me someday, buuut there’s no time like the present for all-embracing that abysmal bottomward I am absolutely Acceptable Babe who loves to accomplish a weeknight banquet in a accelerated beam of 15 minutes.
That’s why I accomplish recipes like this.
In accession to actuality both mild beginning and comfort-foodish, and actuality a above champ with Bjork, it’s fast (literally 15 account fast if you are additionally of Acceptable personality), cool easy, and light. Aloof 340 calories. And by the way, the adaptation pictured on this post? It’s gluten free. No, I’m not GF but I don’t know, sometimes I like to try new things. Are you acrimonious up what I’m putting down? This is acceptable on so abounding levels.Print
