As good as advertised

Gorton’s website says regarding their Grilled Shrimp Classic

No matter the style, the preparation is quick and easy and the taste is absolutely delicious!

That is certainly the truth.  We loved them and I will be looking to by these again, as well as the Grilled Shrimp Scampi.

I found a recipe in eTools for some braised rainbow chard, so I modified it a bit, and it was delicious, too.  Just cooked some shallots in EVOO, then added the chard, salt and pepper.  When ready to serve I put a couple of teaspoons of white wine vinegar.  The recipe called for red, but I only had the white.  It gave a really good taste to the chard.  So that’s another thing I’ll cook again.  AND I grilled my remaining romaine heart on the indoor grill.  That worked very well, in fact, it was easier to control than grilling outdoors.

The chard really does look like a rainbow doesn’t it.  I love love love it!

Another great day here.  We even opened up our slider and windows which we rarely do in July.  And Don changed out the gas tank on our grill and I trimmed back some plants after work.  It was just a good day to be outdoors! :w00t:

And I’ve almost earned back all those points that I spent on Sunday!  :biggrin:
