Savory Sundays: Spanish Chicken Over Caulirice

G and I are challenging ourselves to a No-Spend Month this June as we have some big travel plans later in the summer and have completed a number of house projects since the New Year. (One project was unexpectedly necessary when I opted to put my hand through one of the basement windows. Thankfully I’ll only suffer a scar or two from the accident… oops!)

We do not typically spend a lot of evenings eating out anyways, but we do treat one another to a Date Night once a week. Instead we’ll be attempting a few trickier recipes at home which, in all honesty, I am ALL about! Nothing excites me more than adding a new page to my personal cookbook, especially when it includes spending time with my husband.

Challenge accepted.

How about my goal to eat less grains in my post with the Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes? Well, here is a dish that makes the most of both! The left over limes from my would-be candles and low-carb zucchini noodles make this recipe healthy and satisfying. Two things I love to pair together!

G was craving some shrimp this week and scampi sounded good to me. However, I wanted to use up some ingredients I already had in the fridge and pantry. I also didn’t want to go full out Cheat Meal mid-week by throwing the buttery shrimpers on top of some noodles. So I improvised and wooh-la! Another meal to find permanent residence in our cook book.
