My sweetheart wanted "something with shrimp". I wanted to try something different. So I whipped up a recipe featuring shrimp, chipotle in adobo, cajun spice, tomato, red bell pepper and cavatappi. We agreed it was a tad too hot but OK otherwise. I added some cream to the leftover to mitigate the heat some. We'll see if that helps.

I had to cook up some ground beef I had pulled from the freezer with intentions. Instead, I made a quick meal of salads and slop. Slop was my Mom's name for her pan supper of sauteed beef and onions mixed with carrot disks, noodles, and tomato soup. Himself isn't a fan of tomato soup, so I made it with sauce. It just wasn't the same. I'm not sure if it's the flavor or that I liked it better as a kid.

We had Borscht for lunch (pulled from the freezer, and the last of it, so time for a new batch!)...and then, I made Pot Roast for dinner. Got the roast at a wonderful butcher in Post Falls. Decided we wanted mashed instead of white potatoes in the pot. Wonderful meals, both!
