Oh how I wish I had a third hand to take some photos of my drive home today. It was GORGEOUS! This fall is so beautiful. I think the late summer weather mixed the perfect cocktail of rain and sun to make the trees an idealistic blend of red, orange and yellow.
On my ride home I listened to not one, not two, but THREE Joy The Baker podcasts via Homefries.com. I felt like I was chatting with my BFFs in the car. I also loved that I could download them in minutes right onto my Android phone – no iTunes required. Thanks, Joy and Tracy, it was a hilarious ride!
I arrived home just after dark to find Matt at work in the kitchen on a lovely sea-inspired meal for the family! His dad and wife are visiting!
His dish was a sautéed mixture of shrimp, bok choy, julienned carrot and red pepper, shitake mushrooms over Udon noodles. As a garnish, he soaked and then sautéed a bag of shredded arame, a sea
I LOVED the arame!! It did have a slightly seaweed taste, but it was delicious in Matt’s sauce and an AMAZING texture!! Kinda chewy like al dente spaghetti!
Looks kinda like spiders are crawling around in there!
For the dish, he marinated the shrimp in the following: Tamari, apple cider vinegar, garlic, honey and Worcestershire – about a tbsp or so of each. And then seared ‘em up in a pan!
The rest of the veggies went in next until they were tender and then he removed them and reduced the sauce on medium high heat until it was thick and poured it over everything – including the noodles.
After dinner we opened some chocolates I brought home from my trip and dug into the Triple Ginger Cookies – so good.
Now we’re sipping hot tea and watching Randall’s You Tube videos. Hilarious!
SO GLAD TO BE HOME! I love our house. Home Neat Home post #2 coming this week!!
