Hodgepodge Dinner

My schedule yesterday were quite full and I knew that hubby and I will be going out this weekend so grocery shopping is out of the question. I had to make do with found "objects" in my fridge.

For starters I had made a tomato, bell, pepper, basil salad of some sort. I didn't have any salad greens left so I plucked some basil leaves from my basil bush from my garden out front. I liked this salad but hubby didn't like it as much. He doesn't care for fresh basil at all. He finds the flavor too strong. Well, at least the salad looks colorful, eh?

I did a tomato, basil, mozzarella salad a while back and he didn't like it too. Anyway, for basil lovers out there you may like this one:

Cherry Tomato, Basil and Yellow Pepper Salad
6 cherry tomatoes, split in half
1 large yellow pepper, julienned
Basil leaves
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Liquid Seasoning

Toss the tomatoes and yellow pepper in olive oil, salt, pepper and liquid seasoning. Roast in a 350 oven until slightly browned. Cool slightly. Place on top of a bed of basil leaves.

For the shrimps, I just steamed it since hubby likes it that way. Served with a vinegar and garlic dipping sauce.

For a healthier dessert, I arranged grapes and apples in a small plate. Be sure to squeeze some lemon or calamansi juice on the apples to prevent them from oxidizing.

This wasn't a very heavy meal. Hubby and I found ourselves having a midnight snack of tortilla chips, salsa and chocolates. Yikes, talk about bad eating habits.
