Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

grilled shrimp and vegetables with rice

for a quick summertime meal, i often mix different combinations of fresh vegetables and add a protein, such as grilled shrimp or grilled chicken.  for this dish, i used white onion, red and yellow peppers, and green onions from my garden. i simply heated the vegetables in a splash of olive oil, and lightly seasoned with sea salt and pepper.  next, i grilled the shrimp on the stove top and mixed the two together.
i served the mixture over rice, although i could have added tomatoes and made this a delightful pasta topping.  when serving, i use much more of the shrimp and vegetables, compared to the amount of rice served per person.  the dish is so delicious that even eating without a starch would be perfectly acceptable.

served with a fresh mixed green salad, this summertime quick meal is both healthy and tasty.
