Buffalo Shrimp

One week from today I'll be heading home from my conference. I can't wait. I worked another 9-hour day today. I'm exhausted putting in 12-hour days during the week and 9-hour days on the weekends. Tonight was the last dinner SP and I will eat together until I get home since I'll be working late Monday and Tuesday and then I leave Wednesday. We wanted the meal to be special so SP decided to make shrimp. The last time we went to our favorite hot sauce store we got a spicy buffalo wing sauce that the owner told us was amazing with grilled shrimp.

They were spicy and smoky and bursting with flavor. Quite yummy. SP has never been a fan of regular rice but we both heard brown rice was really good for you so we gave it a shot. I thought it was bland, but SP loved it. As long as there's a sauce for me to sop up with the rice I'm fine so I think brown rice will be our rice of choice from here on out.

Pin It!


  1. I've recently heard that brown rice is better for you, as well. When my friend makes white rice, he washes off all the starch so I don't know if that makes it better or not. I too find brown rice pretty bland, so I'll usually go half-and-half with white rice, or smother the brown rice with sauce. The prawns look yum!

  2. Ugh, I think my stepmother ruined brown rice for me. I won't go into specifics, but let's say it involved rice stuck to the bottom of the pot.

    Those shrimps are huge! Where can I get this sauce, I think it may be delish on chicken.

    PS - I hope everything went a-ok this weekend!
