Brian and I have yet to do a complete grocery haul, so our meals are going to be a little bit “creative” this week.

After a quick  2.5 mile run with Brian last night, we were both stumped in the dinner department…but we were also pretty hungry!

I then cooked the shrimp in coconut oil on the stove along with the other half of the artichoke, just to see if I would prefer the artichoke baked or sauteed.

Curry is a favorite flavor for both Brian and myself, so you usually can’t go wrong if there is a little curry in the mix.  Brian and I liked the artichoke both ways..so there was no winner there!  I had planned on having leftovers for lunches later in the week, but Brian enjoyed it so much that he ate all the leftovers.  I guess it really WAS tasty 😉
