I haven't posted many recipes lately, been too busy yapping about everything else in my life. I feel like 2011 has gotten off to a good start, I'm still eating healthy, but have definitely cut back on all those December indulgences. I'm not happy that Football season is coming to a close, but at the same time I am. Sunday is the new Friday for me, when I enjoy my vino, and other game day foods, so it's not really a bad thing that those days are going away. On the flip side, I worked out 6 out of 7 days last week (really loving my kettlebells), and so far I've logged 60 running miles. So it's all good.
I really didn't want to go grocery shopping yesterday, so I put together a dinner made with things we had in the fridge/freezer, which I love to do. I defrosted some shrimp, made some brown rice, and a salad with mixed greens, red pepper, carrots, broccoli, red onion and feta. Just drizzled some balsamic on top. I wanted to do something different with the shrimp, so I got out some Jade Peanut Sauce.
We found this sauce in Williams-Sonoma probably ten years ago, it's got a nice spice to it, and even though it's peanut based, it has 7 grams of fat and 120 calories for two tablespoons, and a little goes a long way. So I sauteed the shrimp in a bit of olive oil, along with the peanut sauce.
looks good, huh?
