Shrimp exchange

Call me what you wish. I am sure master chef is not on your list. I do however love to try to be creative. We have three kids and they are each allergic to something so I try to make dinners that I can change up a little. I am a huge shrimp fan and they are usually on sale for buy one bag  get one free. I have a husband that loves a good salad. I am a meat eater so I try to incorporate meat into my salad. I decided shrimp salad sound yummy and since they were on sale. I bought them. I got a bag of frozen shrimp. I thawed them out by running them under cold water. Then I peeled them. I placed them in olive oil and fresh garlic and I cooked them on medium heat until they were pink on all sides. I decided to cook both bags because it is just easier to get the cooking part over with. I placed the shrimp I wasn’t going to use in a glass container in the refrigerator. I have this set because it was under $20. Pyrex Storage 10-Piece Set, Clear with Blue Lids. We always use it otherwise our meals will get lost forever if I can’t see what we have. It also ends the mom we have nothing to eat.

I tossed the shrimp on a simple salad. We used our favorite Greek dressing on top. We had an easy and healthy meal. I still had that shrimp to use. I looked in my freezer because I do a lot of freezer cooking. I use this awesome Once-A-Month Cooking Family Favorites: More Great Recipes That Save You Time and Money from the Inventors of the Ultimate Do-Ahead Dinnertime Method book. The title is longer than the time to cook everything. I cook for about 15 days and I double everything. I then have my friend cook 15 days and double everything. Then we swap! It is so much fun and easy. I grabbed my lasagna and I cooked it. I heated up my shrimp and I put them together! It was awesome since one of our children can’t have shrimp. The rest of use were able to enjoy lasagna and shrimp and he enjoyed just the lasagna.

What is your favorite Shrimp recipe?

Convert your movies

I am so excited. I am watching movies of my kids that were stuck on vhs tapes and our VCR broke a long time ago. This is converter is easy to use and guess what it is so much cheaper than paying someone else to do it for you. I saved hundreds. I now have my wedding on dvd and my kids first years. I can’t tell you how much it means to me it is really priceless. I thought this could be a side business for someone since the equipment is so cheap!

I have tons of videos and old movies. I had no idea how to make them into to DVDs. I searched on the internet and I found the Sony VRDMC6 DVDirect Compact Size DVD Burner with AVCHD Recording. The reason why this device is so important to me is having my memories on tape where I can’t access them is the same to me as not having them. We made a collection of all the videos we had of the children and our lives and we sent them to family members that do not live near us so they can enjoy the memories we are making with our children. The kids love watching themselves on video when they were babies.

I have been watching tv today I keep seeing ads for Match.com. It got me thinking would I go on Match.com if I wasn’t married. The answer is YES! I mean it would be like shooting fish in a barrel. I love to meet people and I love to go different places. I think it would be a great way to find the person I was looking for. I considered dating an interview. I mean online is so much better than a bar. I have so many friends who have met the perfect match. I also think the new program they have where you can go to activities with other singles sounds so fun. Get your big girl panties on and just try it you never know.
