I feel like I need to apologize. I have been quite absent the last couple of weeks, and I feel so out of touch with the blog world right now. I’ve mentioned before, but we have been working on selling our house, and finally, everything is coming together. We will be closing the end of this week and moving out, so that has been occupying a lot of my time. And also, my grandpa was diagnosed with lung cancer a couple of weeks ago, and only given a few weeks to live.  Luckily, I was able to travel to New Mexico to see him this last weekend, because last night, he passed away. He was a great man, a great grandfather, and he will truly be missed.

So needless to say, I have been a little distant these last few weeks. And I’ll ask your forgiveness for being distant for another week or so as I plan to attend a funeral and move. I have been cooking, (we do have to eat, after all…) and I’ll be posting still, but it may take me a little longer to respond to comments or to visit other blogs. But I will be back soon!

Now, onto the recipe!! As I was perusing through Facebook a few weeks back, I came across this link that Aggie posted from her archives. I immediately bookmarked it, and seeing that I had some shrimp in my freezer that I’ve been trying to clean out, I added it to my menu plan. This meal should be added immediately to your “fast, easy and healthy” meal pile, because it was all three. Oh yeah, and it was delicious!! Serve it up with a side of orzo, and dinner comes together in a snap. I absolutely love all of these flavors, (I am partial to the salty, after all), and this was a meal I felt good about eating.

  4. Sorry to hear about your Grandfather, but I’m so glad you got to visit him one last time before he passed. What part of New Mexico? I’m from southern Colorado, just 45 mins from New Mexico. We spent a lot of time there as kids.

    This shrimp looks so tasty….and with the feta, yes please!!!

    I’m so sorry to hear about your grandfather. I’m glad you got to go and visit him; that will be a precious memory. And keep us posted about the move. It will be good to have you closer to Salt Lake!

    BTW, this way of cooking shrimp with feta must be a classic because I made something very similar a few months ago! I found the recipe that inspired mine at Real Simple. Really liked it and yours sounds delicious too!

  6. Take all the time you need. You are in my thoughts. Travel safely and I’ll look forward to updates as you move.

    Great recipe, I love this flavor combo!

    Good luck on your move!

    This looks delicious Deborah, but more importantly, I’m so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine how much you have on your plate right now with selling the house and the loss of a grandparent. I’ll be thinking of you. Many hugs!
