Valentines Day is just around the corner, and of course, romantic recipes are all over the internet. Shrimp Scampi pops up a lot. So that got me to thinking…..I know dangerous right!!

Tim and I are not real big on large romantic gestures but we do enjoy a nice meal, and we LOVE PIZZA!!!!!! A combination of two yummy things, how could you go wrong. Let’s just say you can’t.

I looked for Shrimp Scampi Pizza on Pinterest, and while they all looked good, they were all missing the pasta. You can’t have Shrimp Scampi with pasta; it’s unheard of!

We added it, and I don’t wanna brag or anything, but it was a stroke of genius. Shrimp is the star of the show, but the pasta was hardly second fiddle. I think they were co-stars.
Juicy, succulent shrimp, with white wine, garlic, shallot, butter sauce, tossed with angel hair pasta, super yummy. But put all of that on a crispy pizza crust…..delicious!!!

Pomegranate Chicken

So have you tried pomegranates??? If you have not you really need to. What is a pomegranate you ask ……. well it’s one of those fruits that you look at every time you are at the store, but never have the nerve to try. You look at the big red globe and think what in the world would I do with that. Go ahead and get one, they are amazing. They are a bit daunting I must admit……..where do I begin. As I stood and stared at the first one I bought, wondering what in the world to do with it……… as my iPad sat there all knowing …….. I googled pomegranate, then thought a video would be a really good idea, and it was. I just picked a random one, so once I learned what to do, I cracked it open and OMG…….it was a site to behold! The red jewels inside just begged to be released……… but stop!……..all glory aside, they are messy little buggers, and they will stain anything, and I do mean anything they touch. Just ask my cute white top. But after I tasted them I really did not care. My deciding factor in trying them was wanting to make a recipe from another bloggers web site… Pinch of Yum. They have amazing recipes and one caught my eye …Pomegranate, Kale, and Wild Rice with Walnuts and Feta ,so I tried Lindsay’s recipe and all I can say is Pomegranates are wonderful, as was the recipe.
