  1. The shrimp recipe looks easy and delicious with stuff I keep in the pantry or fridge for the most part, except, of course, for the shrimp. :-D Thanks for the link!

  2. P. S. I printed the pdf of the tips for storing fruits and vegetables as well, to put in the front of my cooking notebook. Great resource! Thanks so much!

    It might only be 9 am but the thought of those crepes and shrimp is making me hungry :)

    re: mason jar blender

    My mother’s been doing that since 1998. Too bad I didn’t inherit her smarts… :)
