Shouldn’t I feel more rested after the weekend?
I was kind of dragging today! It probably didn’t help that I didn’t fall asleep until after midnight even though I went to bed around 10 p.m. (I guess I had too much on my mind.) That makes for a short night when the alarm went off at 5:30 a.m.
As I was leaving work this afternoon, my brain instantly went to food because I was hungry! I was craving soup and then smiled when I remembered what I had planned for dinner. 🙂
Feta Shrimp Skillet
(Recipe inspired by the Taste of Home Healthy Cooking magazine October/November 2010 issue.)
I started by chopping a medium onion and 3 garlic cloves.
After brining the mixture to a boil, I let it simmer for about 7 minutes. Next came the shrimp. Since the shrimp was already cooked, I just had to make sure the pieces were heated through. I also added 1 teaspoon dried parsley to the skillet.
This meal completely hit the spot! I was a little worried when it didn’t seem like there was enough ingredients, but the tomatoes and onion provided a nice heartiness to the stew and the oregano and parsley gave it a pleasant flavor. And of course the feta took it over the top!
I enjoyed a Fifteen Minute Oatmeal Scone dipped in my stew! 🙂 So delicious!
And dinner wouldn’t be complete without a little dessert. 😀
