031Dinner time is a very important part of our family routine. The plan is to make a meal that everyone likes but that isn’t always how things turn out. My little Diva aka the current queen of the house, has turned into Ms. Picky eater and I have to get creative or she will throw a fit. So tonight’s dinner was a big risk considering the fact that her royal divaness did not take her nap. No nap equals to chaos and a lot of stress for me.

Spaghetti squash is something I have been wanting make for a while but I haven’t had the nerve to make it until today. So below you will find the ingredients I used and how I put it all together.

Ingredients

1 large spaghetti squash

1 pound of cooked shrimp
1 large green bell pepper
1 medium tomato
1 large yellow onion
3 tablespoons Olive oil
black pepper
Marjoram
Sea salt
2 tablespoons curry powder

Directions

Pre-heat the oven at 375 degrees before you cut the squash in half, take out the seeds and rinse both halves. Get a baking sheet of pan and line it with foil. Oil the covered pan with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season the halves with some black pepper and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Place both halves face down on the baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes. Take out the baking sheet and let the squash cool off before scooping it out. Scoop out the “spaghetti” into a large bowl and set aside.

Curried Shrimp

Slice bell pepper, onion and tomato and set aside. Heat up a skillet with the remaining olive oil. Sautee sliced vegetables in heated skillet. Let the vegetables cook for about 3 to 4 minutes before adding the shrimp. Add the curry, marjoram, black pepper, sea salt and let it simmer on low to medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Combine the spaghetti with the curried shrimp and serve hot. I don’t always like some of my new recipes but this one came out better than I expected. However, her royal divaness did not like my take on the spaghetti squash dinner. She fell asleep during dinner and this means that I have to come up with a back up plan when she wakes up. I might have to make some coconut pancake and serve it with fresh fruit since that seems to be all she wants to eat.

Well I better get going, I am taking myself out on a date tonight and it is way over due. Not exactly sure what I am going to do but I am going to get dressed up and do something just for me.

Thank you for stopping by 🙂

My date with Shakespeare

Posted on

My love affair with William Shakespeare began when I was in high school. I can’t recall the exact year, but I think it was my senior year. My English teacher, Ms. Linda Leslie introduced me to Shakespeare when she selected “Othello” for our class. I remember working on a group project with a few of my classmates. The best part of that project was when we were asked to choose a scene from the play and make a presentation about that scene.
I can’t remember what scene we chose, but I do remember that we did a story board for the scene and then made a short film based on that scene. I didn’t know it then, but that entire process led me to appreciate the movie making process.
Fast forward to college, I had the option of taking music, art appreciation or theatre. I took music and theatre and I will forever be grateful for those classes. I had a great time in my music class, but that will never compare to how alive I felt when I was in my theatre class. I love digging deep into the characters in Shakespeare’s plays. I told myself years ago that I will collect my favorite Shakespeare plays and re-read them and this is the year. I picked up “Othello” and “Hamlet” last week.
I spent an hour reading “Othello” yesterday and it felt great getting lost in Shakespeare’s world. It wasn’t a typical “me date”, but it was still a wonderful way to spend an hour by myself. I could have kept on reading for another hour, but I had way too much work to do. I am looking forward to another date with Shakespeare soon, hopefully I will be able to block out another hour tomorrow afternoon. I better get going…it is way past my bed time and I have to be up early for church.

Thank you for stopping by 🙂
