Saturday, January 5 –
Greenland turned out to be a very simple dinner, once I decided to cheat a little and use pre-made pasta. It took three pans to make this dish: one to cook the pasta, the second to cook the shrimp in oil and balsamic vinegar, and the third to saute the bell peppers and the tomatoes. Just as simple as that. Serve with a salad and you are good to go. BestestFianceEver, Hot Momma, and Baby Bear all thought it was a pretty delicious meal. Easy to make, easy to enjoy. Perfect!
