Garlic Butter Shrimp

Garlic Butter Shrimp

Filipino-Style Garlic Butter Shrimp minus the lemon soda, gives you a rich garlic-butter sauce for drizzling over steamed rice.

Garlic Butter Shrimp

These shrimp came in fresh from harvest in Pampanga last week. It’s a mixture of big and small shrimps that had nothing better to do that morning peanutbutter took it home than soak in a rich garlic-butter sauce. Well, the only ingredients available in the fridge that day is just for turning these fresh shrimps into Filipino-Style Garlic Butter Shrimps. It’s the easiest recipe that yields the yummiest result especially with freshly-caught shrimp.

In other news, I had the most relaxing sleep last night.

A couple of years ago, I loved sleeping without pillows on my head, instead I put them under my tired feet. There’s something about my back lying flatly and so relaxed on the mattress that I find so comforting.

When I got pregnant with Twinkle and my weight started ballooning, I started sleeping on my side. Whenever I tried to sleep without a pillow I end up feeling like I’m gonna drown. Last night, there was a sudden urge to sleep just like how I used to. I felt so tired that I wanted my back flat on the mattress so I removed my pillow, lied on my back, and propped my feet. It’s been such a long time since I had a relaxing sleep..

And I think that’s how I’m gonna sleep again tonight.

Nothing to do with Shrimps at all… LOL! I know it’s completely unrelated but I just had to share!

Happy Monday!
