Can You Come Up With A Title?

I’ve sat here trying to come up with some clever, witty title for at least 10 min. Seeing as this girl needs to get to bed, I’m just gonna run down dinner.

Mom cooked up some local side-striped shrimp tonight, in some garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, white wine, and parsley. I love me some seafood.

There were also steamed green beans.

And I had half a baked sweet potato with butter. It got a little over cooked though, so it was almost a bit watery. Doh!

Such a colourful dinner.

Oh, the shrimp were delicious. They were so sweet and cooked to perfection. I think mom is on a mission to get some more of these local guys. So good!

There was lots of tv watching this evening, since I’m avoiding the gym, what with me being plagued and all. I wanted another hot drink to soothe my throat, but wasn’t feeling the tea, so I decided on hot chocolate instead. Alas, our milk had gone bad (5 days before it’s expiry date even – we’re taking it back), so my sister & I improvised…with cool whip 😉

We had some fresh baked cookies (courtesy of mom) to dip in the frothy chocolately goodness. These cookies had raisins, oats, coconut, craisins, and pecans in them. Yum!

Wednesday = done! Now I sleep. Night!

    What a colorful dinner! I love seafood. I grew up on Cape Cod, where it’s hard not to like seafood. Shrimp is a favorite of mine.

    I love the creativity with the cool whip!

    Great looking dinner! Even BETTER looking and sounding cookies 🙂 And hot cocoa?? Yeah! Another great reason to love fall and winter.

    I love when it gets to be hot chocolate weather! Way to improvise on the cool whip! 😀

    The shrimp looks delicious too – does your mom cook it in the shell?

    Those cookies look scrumptious! I know what I’ll be doing tonight (or tomorrow). I’ll tell my boyfriend all the thanks goes to you! =)

    Mmmm, my weakness is freshly baked cookies.

    I sit around trying to think of clever titles for far too long!! Maybe I should start a list of extras for when I can’t think of one 😀
