It’s been a busy few weeks here. I’ve been traveling non-stop and when I do, my eating is always slightly off. I’m drinking more, cooking less, and overall I come home feeling like I need to play catch up in many areas. Can you relate? That’s why I love simple recipes that I often have all of the ingredients on hand. Like this shrimp dish!
