Easy Shrimp Salad

17 Dec

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to head home for the holidays this weekend.  Family, friends, and FEASTS await! I’m getting antsy just thinking about it.  Alas, there are still two days standing in my way, and I think I might as well get some nutrition in now.  This shrimp salad is cheap, easy and deliciously satisfying.

You’ll need a tomato, 1 ball of mozzarella, spinach, avocado, lemon, olive oil, and 1 package peeled frozen shrimp.  Simply cook the shrimp in a pan on the stove top, chop up the tomato, mozzarella, and avocado, and toss on a bed of spinach.  For a super light dressing, drizzle on olive oil and squeeze half a lemon’s worth of juice.  Add on any other salad components you like!

You’ll feel good, look good, and temporarily stave off the inevitable Christmas vacation pounds.  Enjoy!

Nommin’ Out: Medium Rare

6 Nov

My carnivorous people, pay attention. Medium Rare restaurant, originally started in the Cleveland Park metro area of DC, has expanded to Barracks Row in Eastern Market! My coworker, a staunch Arlington-dweller, mentioned that I need to make it a priority on my restaurant list, and a DC recommendation from him is a big deal.  I shared my desire with a fellow steak lover, and made it a dinner stop this week.  Let me break it down for ya: they serve one thing for dinner only.  Its a $19.75 pre-fixed menu of rustic bread, garden salad, and special-sauce covered steak with hand-cut fries cooked to perfection just the way you like it.  The best part? They serve the steak and fries to you TWICE. Your dinner comes in two parts to ensure the steak and fries stay warm and amazing, #thoughtful.  Paired with a $30 bottle of red wine and I was a happy camper!
