Today is Good Friday, one of the most important days of the year for Christians. My son has arrived home and tomorrow my other two children will once again fill my house with laughter and love. Tonight’s meal was a quick, meatless meal that can be cooked on any weeknight after work. I came across this recipe a few months ago on the website – Laughing Spatula. I just haven’t had the opportunity to make it, but my son loves seafood so tonight it finally made its debut in our rotation. There are absolutely no leftovers, so I’m guessing it’s a keeper for us.
In addition to the shrimp, I cooked a homemade pizza because it wouldn’t be Good Friday without pizza. I didn’t make the dough from scratch tonight as my husband happened to pick up a fresh pizza dough in his travels. If you are buying pizza every Friday night, consider making one with your spouse, or children. It’s super easy and fun and honestly, if you have good sauce, more delicious.
We are having our Easter dinner and birthday party for my husband tomorrow. We are having Prime Rib and I’ll capture some photographs and share the recipe for that at some point. I’m happy to have a full house to cook for and share this Easter holiday and birthday with.
