Do you find yourself with stacks of magazines and you never remember signing up for any them?
Yesterday, I went through a whole bunch of magazines that I have accumulated through free trails from race registrations and pulled out the workouts and recipes before I recycled them. Now I have the essentials and I don’t have to wade through pages of advertisements and use up space in our “less than spacious” apartment.
We are now the proud parents of a DEHYDRATOR! Dave’s mom did not want hers so he fished it out of her garage and now it lives with us. We have already put it to work making dehydrated pineapple!
I can’t wait to make even more dried creations.
Keeping on this tropical theme I made Papaya Salad for dinner:
To prepare the salad simply grate/shred one green papaya and steam any veggies that you would like (I used broccoli). For the shrimp, defrost and cook in a pan with a squeeze of lime and a large splash of tequila. Stir all of the ingredients together with the sauce:
juice from one lime
juice from half a lemon
2 tablespoons of fish sauce
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon siracha
1 tablespoon brown sugar
(all of these amounts are eye balled so play around with different amounts to get just the right amount of heat)
It certainly was not like the authentic meals I enjoyed when I was in Thailand back in 2008, but it was a great change of pace from our normal dinners. Next time we need peanuts!
