I’m counting down, 4 more days of work and then I have a 3 day weekend. I took Monday off for Valentine’s Day, well not really, I just took the day off. :) I promised you yesterday healthy, so tonight for dinner it was fend for yourself night and I made a wonderful healthy stirfry, which I am very pleased with.
I threw this together in 10 minutes, start to finish. I love quick healthy meals. I don’t know what it was, but the stirfry tasted buttery, which I loved. Not sure if it was the shrimp or the snow peas?
I used 4 uncooked Wild Blue Shrimp that I picked up, can you guess from where? Trader Joe’s! I had it in the freezer and figured I better use them up before they get frost burned. I really like to cook with uncooked shrimp because it’s easier to tell when there done. However if you have already cooked shrimp, just toss them in and cook until warmed.
You could definitely use this for two servings, but I ate the whole thing. I also used Trader Joe’s garlic infused olive oil. If you don’t have garlic infused olive oil, I recommend using 1 clove of garlic, diced up. It goes perfect in this dish without being over baring.

I was in an auction for charity and sold a couple batches of Funfetti Cookies, so I am off to make them tonight, so I must go. Oh and my husband asked if I could make chocolate chip cookies with bacon. I won’t post that recipe, I can only imagine how high the calories will be in them. Wish me luck on not eating the batter or trying a cookie.
Have a great day!!
