This coconut shrimp is a change from what people normally think of when they think of coconut shrimp! Grumpy and I had a dish very similar to this at a Chinese buffet about 3-4 years ago and we loved it. Since the place has closed, we haven't been able to find it....when we actually go to chinese buffets. When I saw Bobby had this on his blog (Free Online Recipes)I about jumped for joy. ;0) I finally had found a recipe that I thought was going to be very close to what Grumpy loved and it turned out to be so! This was a great dish. Make sure to check Bobby's post out for the recipe.
I actually made this dish a couple of weeks ago but just haven't had the inclination to really blog lately. You see, I'm needing a change. Very desperately needing a change. My problem is, I can't see a change until at least next spring when Grumpy is done schooling. So, I guess that what else I need is patience. I have a lot of that stuff as it is, but I guess someone is seeing fit that I learn a whole lot more of it.
I love my job and I love the faculty and students at my job. I just don't love sitting at my desk all day long. It didn't help that today was my first day with my former co-worker gone. While I wish her the best, I will miss her in this office. She and I definitely blended well together. That doesn't happen too often with women (yes, I know there are many of you out there who will agree with me!).
I'm feeling the lack luster to go home and make a great meal after work....or if I do make a great meal, I'm lacking the desire to try to photograph it and then to put it in a post.
Patience and change. I guess change will come with time....I suppose I can have patience, I just don't want to. :0)
In the meantime, I'm going to try to get myself out of this rut I am in and get back to enjoying my daily rituals. At home and at work and contemplate on how I am going to make my change happen when I can.
