Sending You Forget Me Nots

Homemade Chicken Soup with a Shrimp Corn Salad

For this week's lunch box meals I made homemade chicken soup with cabbage and this spirited corn salad with baby shrimp.  Chopped salads and anything similar to a salsa cruda is always welcome.  Red onion, tomato, yellow bell pepper, celery, avocado, corn from the cob, herbs and a package of baby shrimp tossed in a bowl and dressed with a lime vinaigrette.  Every bite screams summertime! 

While I was cooking I became famished and had to reheat one of my left over peppers.  I paired it with rigatoni tossed in pesto. 

Next day's Shrimp Corn Salad lunch supplemented with a boiled egg

The best thing about living near Downtown Brooklyn is the plethora of competing produce markets, with quick turn over due to the amount of foot traffic.  I love picking up what's freshest and then coming up with ideas, like this salad.  
A very unexpected gift of pink roses from that guy that smells up my house.  New love victims would think, oh, how romantic!  Long-in-the-tooth love lifers thinks, Wow, what the hell did he do that flowers were in order?  Must have been pretty awful.  But also, how gorgeous!!  Humor and forgiveness could be the key to all relationship longevity.
