After less than five minutes of cooking I removed the shrimp skewers and plated them with a small dish of cilantro and lime cocktail sauce. They were tasty, but I needed only a couple bites to realize it was more white fish than shrimp. (I looked at the ingredients, which confirmed that.) These are certainly more of a snack than a meal; each one took a bite or two to finish. I'm not going to buy them again, though, unless I see them on sale again at half price.
This was the best pasta meal I have had in as long as I can remember. Granted, I am not a huge pasta fan and I rarely eat it, but this was still delicious.
Originally I'd planned to cook corned beef and bratwurst for the game, but I made that the night before. So I picked up some food at Whole Foods, starting with a favorite of mine, the smoked mozzarella pasta salad. This was great as always, and I got more smoked mozzarella than I ever have before.
I got two "Horseradish Potato Croquettes." I'd never tried them before but I really like both those flavors so I figured why not? Unfortunately, the only flavor I could taste was potato; there was no horseradish in it. Oh well. The Whole Foods snacks were a disappointment overall, but the other people with whom I was watching the game seemed to like them.
I also ate a couple other things over the weekend, but they deserve their own posts, so I'll get to them later in the week.
