Well… it’s been quite a week. I made Shrimp and Noodles in Spicy Garlic Sauce to cap it off.  This delicious shrimp really hit the spot after such a wild week! Work for my husband and myself was CRAZY busy, a family member is facing very serious medical issues, our phone account was breached (someone fraudulently bought an IPhone using our account and shipped it to YEMEN, of all places!). To top it all off, day before yesterday I got a flat tire AND had the keys to our other car with me (oops), so my husband couldn’t come help me.  Some weeks are like that, right?

Oh well.  I am extremely grateful for the nice gentleman named Mark (a kind stranger) who, in absolutely POURING rain (we were sopping wet) helped me get enough air into the tire to enable me to drive a few miles to a tire store, where a lovely an evil bolt was removed and the tire was patched. There really are wonderful people in this big, old world, who still will go out of their way to help others in need.

At least my husband and I were able to end this crazy week with a great dinner last night… Shrimp and Noodles in a Spicy Garlic Sauce really hit the spot… we were tired and hungry by the time Friday night rolled around. My husband had been up working since 3 AM (remember… crazy busy), so in reality, I could have made cereal for dinner and he probably wouldn’t have noticed as he nodded off into the bowl.

We LOVED This Simple Dish!

BUT I made this great recipe instead! EASY, EASY, EASY, quick, and incredibly delicious. Absolutely perfect is the best way I can describe this dish. The shrimp was so flavorful due to a fantastic Asian-inspired garlic sauce, and the ramen noodles helped make the dish very filling!

I found the recipe for the shrimp and sauce on Pinterest,  and decided to cook some ramen noodles to add to it. YUM! Seriously, I think the entire meal took under 20 minutes to make, from start to finish! I sure hope you’ll give this recipe a try. I know you will really LOVE it! Here’s how to make it:

  6. Place shrimp and noodles on individual serving plates. Garnish with additional green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
