From our skinny table to yours...

As excited as we are for all things PUMPKIN :) ... we are squeezing in as many summery meals as we can!  Who loves dinner in under 30 minutes?  We do and we know you will LOVE this one!

Today we are keeping it light and fresh with a lemony shrimp dish over our favorite 'noodles', spaghetti squash!

Tonight's dinner consist of perfectly pan cooked grilled shrimp over spaghetti squash.  We kept this dish easy and light by seasoning with fresh lemon, parmesan cheese, olive oil and fresh basil.  We added a POP of color by tossing in roasted grape tomatoes, which added the perfect little bite!

Dinner on the table in under 30 minutes... YES PLEASE :)

We hope you love this one as much as we did!

  3. Yuuum, shrimps! I love them so much. I think it's one of the best kinds of food. I would love to live somewhere where you can eat a seafood as your ordinary meals. Like in Korea or Malaysia. Because I live in the country, where my college essay writing service salary doesn't allow me to buy a lot of seafood.
