Today I tried to recreate Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish. Overall, it came out good. It needs a bit more kick and I might try baking the shrimp next go around.

I made this last night. I have fond memories of going asparagus hunting with my parents and siblings when I was a kid. It grew wild out by The Great Salt Lake, which is near where I grew up. These little store-bought, commercially-grown, woody ones pale in comparison to the fresh, soft, flavorful, one-inch diameter stalks we would harvest for free every spring, but I like grilling it and always reminds me of our vegetable-hunting endeavors and the grocery bags of it that we would go home with.

That looks awesome! I love having those two things together, in fact, I just added them to my grocery list. I'll probably bake the salmon and steam the asparagus though.

Cool story about "hunting" the asparagus. I can picture y'all "stalking" your prey. :D

We've been having fried shrimp cravings for a while. Went a long way to satisfy those cravings. Great flavor and just the right amount of bite. Would have made a great po boy if we could find decent french bread around here.

That big thing is an artichoke?! Where's the carbs?!?! :)
Speaking of artichokes, I had my first whole artichoke at Mindi's while I was visiting. I really wasn't sure if I'd like it, but I loved it. The method of eating one definitely requires a tutor (thanks, babe!). It was fun to eat and it was delicious.

Here's a pic of the artichokes with Mindi's porcupine meatballs (no porcupines were harmed in the making of this dish), rice, and garlic bread. Delicious.

As a college student, I rarely cook unless you count french toast or a grilled cheese sandwhich. I had California cheeseburger sliders for lunch today. That is hamburger, american cheese, pineApple, and guacamole on a bun.

Yeah we don't have access to a kitchen. Never have. It's there, but no access.

Why are they called "porcupine" meatballs? I'd love to try them.
