Yes, I am off track with my menu plan. I have been distracted with the card business and laundry... I don't even know what I was supposed to cook for today. So glad I had my basic GO TO's on hand. Elbow Macaroni, frozen shrimp, garden veggies.
I boiled 1/2 a pound of elbow macaroni for 5 minutes in salted water. I added ground turmeric, garlic and @ 10 shrimp (which I cut in thirds or half to stretch the portion) to the boiling water and cooked the shrimp.
After I drained the pasta, I cooled it off a bit and then added
- 4 green onions (wish I had red onions)
- fresh parsley (cilantro would have also worked)
- 3 celery stalks
- 1/2 seedless cucumber
- 1/2 c (well drained) crushed pineapple (wish I had chunks)
- a shredded carrot
- (grapes might have gone well in this dish too)
I poured 1/2 c of Asian salad dressing and tossed, as in mixed- not threw away. It needed more salt so I included a dash of soy sauce.
It was pretty good, if I have to say so myself. Actually, I do since I was the only one who ate it. If you try this recipe, you'll have to let me know how you like it.
