While it’s true that I have only ever worked a “9-5” corporate job for three months of my life, I did spend a lot of time in college, like 7 years. During my time in college, I spent long days on campus and got so sick of eating at the same sandwich shop every day, but bringing my lunch meant, basically the same thing, bringing a sandwich or salad, every day!

I was always on the look out for something new, delicious and nutritious that I could bring to school with me, and make in just a couple of minutes, only using a microwave.

Now, I may not be in school anymore, but there are still those days where I need a go-to 5 minute lunch option when I’m running around and too busy to cook anything, and that’s where my friends at Minute® Ready to Serve Rice and Chicken of the Sea come in!

Both Minute Ready To Serve Rice cups and Chicken of the Sea Salmon pouches are wholesome, delicious ways to spice up your lunch routine!

Over Memorial Day weekend, my boyfriend Kurt & I headed to Philadelphia for his cousins wedding. Since it was my first time in Philly, I had to check out the food scene!

Of course I tried several Philly Cheesesteaks (you can read all about that in my Food Bloggers Guide to Philadelphia!) but I also tried some local restaurants that were recommended by friends from the area.

One of these recommendations was Cuba Libre, a Cuban restaurant where we indulged in an unlimited tapas brunch!

Chili Lime Garlic Grilled Shrimp

Yay!!  My first dinner post!! So unfortunately my roomie Nick is moving back to Boston on Tuesday, but fortunately that gave us a great excuse to plan a little going-away dinner for him this weekend that involved surf-and-turf!

Now if you would have asked me 5 years ago what surf-and-turf was I would have probably said some sort of exercise but after venturing in to the seafood world about 3 years ago… yes New Years Day 2009 was my first time to eat anything out of the water IN MY LIFE!  No salmon, no shrimp, no lobster, not even my favorite… crab until this fateful day in 2009! I don’t know how I lived before crab legs, lobster rolls and one of my favorite  things I’ve ever made… Chili-Lime-Garlic Grilled Shrimp!

Now there’s still that fishy (get it, fishy, haha) story out there that my parents always try to tell me about how I ate fish sticks from Hardee’s when I was about 9 years old because I thought they were chicken strips, but all the same, for the purpose of this post we’ll say my first fish experience was in 2009 (besides I don’t know if you can consider fish sticks from Hardee’s really fish!)

Back to the dinner…so, as soon as the boys (my two roommates) decided on surf-and-turf for dinner I knew I had to make these grilled shrimp.  I made them once before on Father’s Day this year and they were to-die-for!

I finished off the meal by throwing in the leftover creamy orzo from Wednesdays lunch with some crispy veggies and some grilled corn on the cob and we had a serious feast going on!

Fast forward almost 4 years later to April 2015, and I made this Cilantro Lime Pesto Risotto, then topped it with this shrimp, so delicious!
