Shrimp with Spicy Tomato Sauce

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the garlic in the olive oil until just golden, approximately 2 minutes. Be careful not to burn the garlic. Add the tomatoes and hint of sea salt and cayenne pepper. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Season the shrimp with sea salt and add to the tomatoes. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until no longer pink. Stir in 1 tablespoon of butter for added richness, if desired. I love serving this with Mexican rice. Salad on the side. Ranch dressing is well match with this meal.

Steak Veggie Soup

Home made soup... Always good. It's good for your tummy, good for your soul and it was goooooooood for Thursday night!
First get Trader Joe's frozen veggie in a bag. And get a tri-tip steak marinated in ginger, garlic soy sauce for at least 30 min. Boil water and put chopped cabbage and tomatoes with hint of sea salt. Grill up your steak. This case medium well is the best bet! When cabbage, tomato broth start boils up add TJ frozen veggies and season your now the veggie soup the way you want. Slice up your grilled steak. Toss them into your soup... Yes, now you got yum, yum steak veggie soup. Enjoy!

This was the chief's special dish for the Gonpachi Soba course meal. I am not much of a pork eater, but this pork was so good. Melting in my mouth... Have you ever heard of pork melting in someone's mouth??? You gotta go Gonpachi and try!
