After this wonderful breakfast, I spent the day with my sister looking at wedding venues. She is planning to get married next summer - it is going to be so beautiful! We went to 13th Ave. Coffee House for lunch and I had the same bowl that I had on Friday. My sister tried tofu for the 1st time!! She ate it all with no complaints ... I think I have another convert!
For dinner I made orzo with bacon and shrimp. It was really good, but not as creamy as I was hoping for. Next time I will add some cream or milk.
Orzo with Bacon and Shrimp
(Adapted from Flavours magazine)
1 cup dried orzo pasta
4 slices thick cut bacon, chopped
Approx. 16 uncooked shrimp (peeled)
1 shallot, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup goat cheese
1 T parsley
Cook pasta. While pasta is cooking, cook bacon in a deep skillet. Once done, remove with slotted spoon, leaving the drippings in the pan. Add the shallot and garlic and cook 1 minute. Add the shrimp and cook until pink. Add orzo and cheese, parsley and bacon. Stir until warm and cheese is melty. Season with pepper.
This evening I had a cookie, and then a small bag of chips at the movie Eclipse. (I snuck the chips into the theatre, and a water too). I like the movie, but it doesn't even come close the the book. If you haven't read the books, but you've seen the movies you are missing A LOT!
Do you sneak treats into the movie theatre?
I usually only sneak a water in, but tonight I wanted a little bag of chips. I usually buy popcorn, or frozen yogurt, or nothing at all.
