Sorry, I’m late…..
Yeah, this Shrimp Thermidor was one of the dishes we had during Christmas lunch….
And I’m blogging about it now because…
a. I don’t have anything to talk about…
b. I’m kinda on a diet and cooking something that is high in sugar and fat isn’t an option for me today..
c. I feel like eating shrimp but I’m too lazy to go to the market to buy some, so I decided to just stare at this photo of pretty shrimps
d. I’m really craving for Cream Cheese Frosting and to take my mind away from my craving I have to keep it busy by writing this post.
It’s all of the above.
I’m eating bittermelons and tofu for lunch today…
And I just finished doing some exercise. I don’t really know how long this exercise thing is gonna last…
I’m giving myself a week..LOL!
Oh, BTW, here’s the recipe…Print
