Victor comes through, again.

I pulled a bag of shrimp out of the freezer this morning, thinking I’d do a bit of a pasta and vegetable dish with it.  Substantial Scampi.  Just a simple this-‘n-that dish.

Victor had the same idea – what a surprise, there – and when I got home, said he would take care of dinner.

No need to ever say that to me twice.  I love to cook, but when someone else is cooking, I’m eating.  I know how to vacate a kitchen. Fast.  Before second thoughts can take root.

I was outta there.

Dinner was brilliant in its simplicity… shrimp quickly sauteed in a bit of olive oil and lemon dill butter.  He then added an orange bell pepper, garlic, peas, fresh herbs from the garden, sliced heirloom cherry tomatoes, some shredded parmesan cheese, and a pinch of red pepper flakes.

He then added the cooked mini cheese ravioli, added a bit more cheese, and dinner was served!

He also baked off the last of the no-knead bread dough in the ‘fridge.

Shrimp and pasta with warm homemade bread.  Creamy, rich, flavorful, and just what I wanted.

I’m spoiled.

And I love it!
