Tonight, after several nights of JW's birthday dinners, I had to take it easy.
I made pasta. I cooked whole wheat penne, while I defrosted frozen shrimp in an inch of warm water (best thing to always have in the freezer- defrosts in a minute!). I peeled and added to a saute pan with garlic and a little butter.
I sliced the bottom 1.5" inch off the asparagus and added to a different saute pan (yes 3 pans, JW is MAD!). In the saute pan I added another clove of garlic and the juice of 1 lemon (although 1/2 would have been fine) and S&P. Once the pasta was boiling I put the lid on the asparagus.
I served the meal with the shrimp on top of the pasta and asparagus on the side.
JW is still doing the dishes...
