Having no fresh veggies for dinner I thawed out a bag of baby artichokes and made a frittata yesterday afternoon, just like mama taught me.

Had some 15 to-the-pound red Argentina shrimp thawed and dried.

Coated with a egg wash, Italian bread crumbs combo, gettin' ready for the fry pan

Into the pan with a nice olive oil - butter mix, maybe not great for the diet, but good for the soul!

About two minutes a side, golden brown and perfect

Plated up with that artichoke frittata and some chicken-garlic tortellini in a tomato-basil sauce, little parm on top, nice glass of cab

Had some homemade tartar and cocktail sauce for dippin', this was the kind of dinner I grew up with on Fridays, right up my wheelhouse! This was so delicious my wife Jan and I were giggling at the dinner table. Now I see these shrimp are on sale this week for $5.49lb, I'll be making a run to market this afternoon for as many two pounds bags as the freezer has room for. Thanks for lookin' in and y'all stay safe out there, the zombies are everywhere! RAY

That shrimp looks incredible! One of the things I have learned doing this fasting stuff that fat is actually good for you. It does not have to be processed by the liver and does not raise your insulin. Gets used right away for energy. Tomorrow that will change though.

Sign me up brother!! That is one delicious looking meal right there. I'd walk to AZ barefoot...in the snow...up hill both ways, for a plate of that. Great job buddy.

Oh Ray! That looks scrumptious!
Thanks Stuart! Scrumptious was exactly the word Jan used last night, don't hear that from her all that often. Stay safe my friend, looks like we're in the worst spot on the planet for the virus. Thank you for the Like Stu, I do appreciate it. RAY


Yum !!! Looks amazing. 👍👍
Thanks Mike, and thank you for the Like, much appreciated! RAY


That shrimp looks amazing Ray! You need some hush puppies to go along with them!!
Thank you John! I never made hush puppies, not exactly sure what they are. After some dubious recent trips outside my comfort zone I felt it best to go with something I knew Jan would enjoy, and it paid off. Thanks for the Like amigo, I do appreciate it. RAY


Yeah buddy! I'll take a plate if that! Looks delicious!!
Thank you Travis! With some nice leftovers for the wife I can Weber up a nice thick ribeye for myself tonight! Thank you for the Like Travis, much appreciated. RAY

Ray that whole plate looks great! That Shrimp is perfectly cooked. We had a similar price for that size last week, I grabbed some. Gonna put them to good use soon. Excellent work. Stay safe.

Man, Ray those shrimp look tasty as all hell and pretty big too! They look like langostino lobster tails. That’s a plate I’d love to sit down to.

Also, $5.49/lb? That seems like a killer deal!! Shrimp seems to be anywhere from $10-15 around me.

Thanks Bear! I not only do all the cooking around here the grocery shopping is part of my chore list, my wife Jan hasn't been inside any kind of store for almost a year now. Thank you for the Like John, I do appreciate it. RAY


Looks delicious ray. I love shrimp and artichokes. Nice work bud
Thanks Jake! A frittata is a great way to enjoy a choke, you get a real solid bite without having to scrape a mayo infused leaf with your teeth, tho I love doing that too. RAY
