Well, it's happened. We are embarking down a very scary, but ultimately fulfilling, road. That's right, we're buying a house. We aren't moving until at least December, but the budget is extremely tight until then so that means no family dinners on Sunday, no expensive ingredients, no entertaining. I'm planning to make a lot of casseroles for SP and I like macaroni and cheese, lasagna, chicken with apples...basically anything that uses inexpensive ingredients.
Tonight, in celebration of our offer being accepted, we ate shrimp. I doubt we'll be buying it again until next year, but I had half a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer already so I made one of our favorites: Shrimp with Ginger, Garlic and Scallions. I served it over white rice alongside green beans cooked with shallots.
