Whoever said “opposites attract” was definitely on to something. Case in point: Lu and I.
Don’t get me wrong, Lu and I certainly have many similarities, but we do have our different habits and personality quirks – he’s super neat around the apartment and I’m, well, not so super neat. He usually has to remind me to close the cabinets and drawers after cooking or squeegee the glass shower door.
Just earlier this week, he left for work in the morning and found my keys in the door lock, from the night before. Oops!
I’m also known to lose important receipts, misplace the car keys, or forget to blow the candles out before leaving the apartment. What can I say? I don’t like to stress! As for Lu? Well, let’s just say that he folds his shirts all differently, depending on type and size. Me? Folding? Ha!
Having said all of this, one of the reasons that I love him with all of my heart is that he’s incredibly supportive of me and my dreams for Inspiralized. He gives me constructive criticism (although he’ll tell you that I fight him “tooth and nail“) and advice on every move I make (in a very low-key, caring way).
One of his constant comments is this: “Why don’t you make simpler recipes for those who just want to make an easy bowl of pasta?”
We definitely fight on this one. I feel like all of my recipes are pretty simple – yet delicious! And listen, he’s dashingly handsome, but he’s not exactly Mario Batali in the kitchen.
But alas, as always, I’m taking his advice (well, sort of). Today, I’ve created a super easy Shrimp Scampi recipe. I’ve taken a classic Italian favorite and transformed it into a healthier, low-carb, gluten-free and low-cal version of it’s former self. However, I couldn’t resist the urge to spice it up a bit – with bacon!
Are any of you complaining? It’s bacon!
What are your thoughts on this? Would you like to see more easy, classic dishes Inspiralized? I won’t fight back, I promise!
