Plus coffee + OJ. … Continue reading

Shrimp Cobb Salad

Shrimp Cobb Salad

As planned, Wednesday I made Thai Coconut-Curry Chicken Soup. This recipe is awesome, with a really flavorful, complex broth, but I think I am getting a little burnt out on it because I have made it so many times over the past several weeks! Might need to wait a while before I make it again. … Continue reading
