Saturday Night Supper… Before and After

We had various items to eat up and now that we have a stocked freezer and refrigerator, we had plenty to throw together for supper.

We had Sweet Bourbon Beef Kabobs from the meat market and we had the fresh shrimp from Fabian Seafood from my previous blog post Yummy Shrimp and A Good Book and I had a few steak tomatoes left from the farmer’s market.

I am sure everyone just loves all the food photos that every one takes and then they post them to social media. 🙂 I don’t mind it but get annoyed sometimes because then I become hungry for what I see and can’t have it, it can be frustrating at times. haha 🙂  Well along with the mass amounts of people who take photos, I took a “Before and After” pictures of our supper because it was significant difference in our food and it was quick, easy and delicious.

The Before Picture: 


It doesn’t look too appetizing just yet. Just wait…

Shrimp Recipe: 

The recipe is a marinated that you put the raw shrimp in and then an additional basting recipe for once they are on the grill. We took the legs off and deveined the shrimp, we left shell on.I did not have big skewers so I had to use my small ones. Don’t forget to soak your wood skewers prior to grilling so they don’t start on fire.

I am not going to give exact amounts of what I used as it was for a larger amount of shrimp, where we had a smaller amount and I threw the ingredients in the baggie to marinate the shrimp for a few hours. So please portion and ration based on the amount of shrimp you have and what you want them to taste like.

Fly by the seat of your pants. 🙂 You can’t mess it up.


  • White wine
  • Juice from a lemon
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Minced garlic

Basting Sauce-

  • Salted butter melted
  • Finely minced garlic cloves
  • Juice from a lemon
  • Cracked black pepper

Tomato Recipe:

I loved the tomato recipe because it was quick, light fresh and had lots of flavor. I didn’t have any fresh herbs because I would have added them as well. It would have tasted great with chopped cucumber. We will definitely make it again. 🙂

  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped red onion
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic Vignette or red wine vinegar
  • Salt
  • Pepper

The After Picture:


It was a great quick, easy and light supper. It was Gluten Free as well. 🙂
