Apr 1: Afghan Pockets; Lemon Butter Garlic Shrimp with Asparagus and Brown Rice


Back to Skewers Halal as part of a shopping trip. We shared a beef wrap and a yeros wrap. Both were very good, with the beef taking the edge.

Today’s pockets were $9.60 each with tax.


A simple meal of shrimp and asparagus done on a pan sheet with a lemon, butter garlic dressing. A simple meal to prepare and cook. The most difficult part was peeling the shrimp! We find that shrimp kept in the shell until the last minute have more flavor.

  • Asparagus spears were $3.49 but we only served up half, or 88c per serve
  • 1 lb of shrimp were $6.99, which makes a very generous serve for $3.50 each
  • Rice adds 50c per serve
  • Add 30c for lemon and garlic.

Tonight’s simple, but excellent, meal cost $5.18 per serve.
