Indian Coconut Pineapple Shrimp

February 2, 2014

I had a whole sassy post written for today.

Indian Coconut Pineapple ShrimpBut after a day of moving and two bottles of wine I decided I was drinking too much haterade (and clearly not enough wine…)

Indian Coconut Pineapple Shrimp 2So instead I’ll leave you with this deliciousness.

p.s. The recipe name is the WORST.

    I think wine after a long moving day was totally appropriate, so enjoy the recovery!

    You’re so funny. I like that this is basically a post out of frustration/anger. Moving will do that to a person. Today (guessing this was written Saturday) is a whole new day. I just sent you a book of an e-mail that will hopefully brighten your day.

    Shrimp is one of my most favorite sea food dishes! It is cheap, easy to prepare, and SO good. This coconut and pineapple version has my taste buds intrigued! 🙂

    wow, for someone in such a state…impressive. The recipe looks amazing and I can forgive that name……I forget how well pineapple and protein work together!

    Nice to see you’re not a rice racist.

    You should write posts when you’re tispy more often, as should I! Coming up with recipe names is the worst task. Mine are usually like 100 words too long, like this comment. Congrats on the new place girly!!

    1. This recipe looks delicious.
    2. I love that even though you deleted your whole post, even that act in itself still managed to make me laugh. Your daily posts always have me laughing out loud and I love it so thank you. I had to stop reading them while in the office because my disgusting sounding muffled laugh was distracting my co-workers.
    3. I hope your move went well! Moving is the most stressful event ever. They have it ranked up their with divorces. Just saying. You better post some pictures soon!

    Oh gosh, I remember the last time I moved… looking forward to wine at the end of the day was pretty much the only thing that kept me going. 😛

    Hope you’re settling in nicely!

    As delicious as this recipe looks – I’m focused on the fact that you’ve been drinking wine. Ha Ha! Since alcohol is illegal here in Kuwait (I know I know, WTF) – please have a glass for me. Just pretend I’m sitting there w/ ya.

    HAHA I love the tipsy post, and I think the name of this recipe is just fine!! You could call is “pile of dog shit” and I’d still want to eat it..because it looks THAT good. Well except I’d pick off the shrimp..haha.
