Celebrate Good Times

18 Dec

Our mother is the best mom I know! She is always surprising us or stopping by our house for an unexpected visit. To celebrate being completely done with our semester at college she brought us over some goodies to cook with! She knows us so well. Asparagus, Shrimp, and HUGE Sweet Potatoes. We hit the jackpot.

Prep work was pretty basic for this meal.

The shrimp were already seasoned with some Old Bay so all we did was warm them up in a pan on the stovetop right before dinner. So simple.

The sweet potatoes were washed, poked with a fork, lightly salted, and wrapped in foil before being placed in the oven at 400 degrees for 60 minutes. We had to keep poking them with a fork to make sure they were done. We are kinda impatient about waiting until they’re completely cooked.

The asparagus was easy to prepare as well. We just snipped off the ends and steamed them in the microwave in a damp paper towel. 3.5 minutes is all it took. We were going to grill them, but we couldn’t face the cold! We’re kinda wimps about the cold.

Viola.. Meal Complete

And of course, there needed to be a celebratory drink involved as well!

Stella! One of our favorites. Definitely a perfect way to end the semester! Can’t wait for these next few weeks of relaxation and extra time for cooking in the kitchen! Stay tuned for what we think of next.
