MY DAD'S BIRTHDAY
"White bread and water."
I said this was not an option and he should choose something else. He said a small steak would be great. So I went to Taylor's Ol' Fashioned Meat Market and picked up some Spencer ribeyes.
I wanted something for lunch one day that wasn't from a restaurant or fried or microwaved, and chicken fajitas sounded great. Taylor's has them already mixed: peppers, onions and chicken in a marinade. I bought a pound and a half and cooked it in a skillet.
I grilled the burger patties, melting some Tillamook cheddar on top, and adding caramelized onions.
LEFTOVERS PART II
FRESH & EASY
The instructions said to cook the shrimp for ten minutes... that seemed excessive. So I cooked the veggies and sauce for that time, then cranked up the heat and tossed the shrimp around for about two minutes. They turned out great. The sauce was spicier than I expected, which is a good thing. I served it all over jasmine rice.
I think I only have one more place in Pasadena to write about, and then the vacation posts are all done.
