HOLIDAY CHARCUTERIE BOARDS

The fantastic thing about charcuterie boards (that’s just a fancy way of saying a big ole’ plate of meat and cheese and crackers), is that there are endless variations and they make sense for every occasion. Girls night + baby shower + picnic date + holiday party + office meeting or THANKSGIVING!! What could be better while you’re cooking all day than a grazing board? Answer: nothing.

SHRIMP TACOS WITH MANGO SALSA + CILANTRO LIME CREMA

I would eat these every day if Todd wouldn’t start looking at me funny like I needed an intervention. Tacos everyday all day. He asks me where I want to go for date night and I just stare at him like he is speaking a foreign language. OF COURSE we must have tacos. And these spicy shrimp numbers are my absolute favorite to whip up at home.

MANGO SALSA

This salsa is magic just with chips. But I have also mounded it atop grilled steak, dumped it onto tacos and spooned it ever so gently onto a nice piece of pan fried mahi. I imagine I would also swoon if it found it’s way onto a burger with bacon or with fried chicken or on a omelet. WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS – it’s good on just about anything.

PARMESAN + HERB SHRIMP CAKES WITH LEMON SRIRACHA AIOLI

We thought you may need a mid-week dinner idea that will absolutely make your skirts fly up. 

Last night I was deep into a Netflix binge and a neat Bourbon because: HORMONES. Bitchy little things, aren’t they? Anyway… moving along. Emily shot me a text of the dinner she whipped up for her brood and I  immediately wished I was at HER house instead of wallowing in hormonal sorrow.
