We’ve been eating a lot of shrimp lately.
There are three simple reasons….
We like shrimp.
I can now buy cleaned shrimp. Mon mari was not overly fond of cleaning shrimp and I can’t. I have no problem eating shrimp but my hands break-out in … Continue reading.....
Time for mon mari’s least favorite protein: Fish
Okay, maybe not least…. I think he would attribute that to tofu and lentils.
And I think he actually likes fish – he just likes to complain about it better.

Mon mari and I have an ongoing disagreement about the proper way to make lasagne.
