Here are some of the meals that I made last week:
Beef Bulgogi with Veggie Fried Rice – This was a quick and yummy dinner. I cut beef steak into thin strips and marinated it for 4 hours with Korean BBQ sauce (pic here), sesame seeds and soy sauce. After frying the beef, I chopped up frozen stir fried veggies into bite size pieces, and sauteed it in the same frying pan with spring onions, salt, pepper and brown rice. For my drink – I had Iced Green Tea. I try to have at least 1 mug of Green Tea a day – hot or iced.
Shrimp Lobster Rolls – There is no lobster in these sandwiches – but they are prepared like the Lobster Rolls you get in New England – with mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, paprika, salt, pepper, spring onions and celery served in buttered hot dog rolls. So satisfying.
Shrimp Fried Rice with Salad – While I made the Shrimp Lobster Rolls for hubby, I tried to be healthy and have my portion of the jumbo shrimp with brown rice, carrots and cucumber. It was okay – but hubby’s dinner was more delicious. I think the next time I make this – I’ll make a cold salad for myself – using the shrimp/mayo mixture from the Lobster roll – but served with salad rather than a hot dog bun. I served my meal in my Cath Kidston plate – it’s so Shabby Chic and pretty…and makes small portions seem bigger!
