shrimp stir-fry

while this dish tasted good I would do things a little different next time. instead of Julian the vegetables I think that they would be better matched with shrimp if I cut them into chunks and maybe add some red pepper flacks for some heat.

cut veggies into chunks such as
  • onion
  • celery
  • red bell peppers
  • carrots
  • minced garlic
  • minced ginger

dust cleaned and dried shrimp with corn starch.

In a hot hot pan add in peanut oil with a touch of sesame oil and saute the shrimp in a single layer. when the shrimp is just pink on both sides remove a set aside. Clean the pan and get it hot hot again, add a little peanut (or avocado) oil with a touch of sesame oil add in the garlic, ginger and veggies. toss the veggies a few times, add the shrimp to reheat and serve over steamed rice.

Returning to Michigan

We have lived in Mexico City for more than a year now and it is time to go home. We will be returning to Michigan in just a few short weeks and once I do that I have to lose some of this weight I put on while in Mexico. The plan is to join Weight Watchers when I get back and to start blogging again on a regular basis but blogging weight watcher friendly food. At least for the first 3 to 4 months of being back.
