It is Valentine’s Day, and I plan on working late…boo hiss. So last night we decided we would have a nice dinner. I asked my husband what he would prefer to eat and the response was…steak. So since I am trying to cut back, I added shrimp. The last time he had shrimp was over the summer and he said he liked it so I thought I would give it a shot again. The meal; grilled New York strip steak, grilled shrimp, mashed red potatoes and salad. A good meat and potatoes meal. (Sorry no pictures, I forgot)
Quarter about 2 lbs. of red potatoes, boil in salted water until fork tender. Drain. Add about 3 tbsp. of margarine, and 1/4 cup of milk (I used whole, I didn’t think Almond would taste to good.) Mash until your desired consistency. Salt and Pepper to taste.
For the meat, all I did was a little salt and pepper and put on the grill. Nothing fancy.
The shrimp, I basically just added a little salt and pepper and olive oil. Grilled until just almost done, tossed the shrimp into a mix of butter and citrus basil seasoning, then put back on the grill to just finish cooking through. Total about 5 minutes. (Make sure to get good fresh shrimp!)
I served everything with a mixed green salad and rolls (fresh from the Amish market.)
Next week I will be talking Chili…
