- beer-boiled shrimp
- small red potatoes, parboiled then chuffed up in a hot pan with butter
- sliced homegrown tomatoes sprinkled with torn basil, sea salt and cracked pepper and drizzled with EVOO and balsamic vinegar
Passed on everything and had a peanut butter sandwich and some celery. Yuck.
Had some shrimp and potatoes with leftover salad from the other night, along with a clementine.
I was going to grill the shrimp but I just couldn't be arsed to peel them and thread them on skewers and whatnot. Instead I poured a couple of bottles of Abita Turbodog into a big pot, threw in some whole peppercorns, a couple of bay leaves and some salt, brought it to a boil, then tossed in the shrimp unpeeled (I buy them already de-veined with the shells split, and I gave them a rinse first). I drained them and put them on ice after they were cooked and served them with melted butter for dipping. Yum!
