Citrus ginger shrimp should make everyone happy…

because it is totally delicious.  And no matter how you are eating…paleo, primal, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy free, Whole30…it fits right in.

Like everything I make, it was really easy to throw together.  The only thing that really took any time was mincing the garlic and ginger.  Just put on some music and you’re good to go!  I’m really into “Fetish” by Selena Gomez.  And “Sorry, Not Sorry” by Demi Lovato.  And of course “Strip that Down” never gets old.

Here’s what I used…

I don’t really care about football.  But I like snacks.  And I like my cute Eagles shirt.  Hopefully they won’t suck this year and I can actually wear it.

Still loving “Feels” by Calvin Harris.  And “Back to You” by Louis Tomlinson and Bebe Rexha.  Oh, and “Get Low” by Liam Payne and Zedd.  

But back to the meal I threw together.  

The soup was already made, which I detailed in a recent post (I’ve always been a little intimidated) and I just dumped the chicken and brussels sprouts on a sheet pan and popped them in the oven.

I’ve always been a little intimidated…

Because it’s a nightmare to cut them up.  The skin is so hard I’m afraid I’ll lose a finger.

So I tend to just avoid them.

But recently a butternut squash showed up on my doorstep (thanks Mom!)  And the nights have been getting colder.  Suddenly butternut squash soup started sounding pretty good.  Here’s what I used: Continue reading
