Dinner

Bang Bang Shrimp Bowl

It has been an eventful few days in the DeLorme house!

Ellis has joined a Kids Run the Nation running class that meets twice a week and he absolutely loves it! Steven Michael and I are helping to coach the kids, so it’s a family affair. On Friday night, Steven Michael and I were finally able to meet up with some good friends for dinner and ice cream. It was so great to do something normal and feel safe while doing it!

Ellis also recently had his first scary fall, and has now learned that running on couches isn’t a great idea … especially when there is a coffee table nearby to catch your face on the way down! Don’t worry, he’s ok and assures us that the huge bruise on his cheek doesn’t hurt at all (unless he pushes on it reeeeeeeaaaalllly hard). Sometimes we have to learn lessons the hard way, but he’s still a cutie pie with one chipmunk cheek!

With Mother’s Day tomorrow, we’re having a quiet evening at home tonight. For my big day I have requested to play mini golf as a family and have Turkey Meatball Subs for dinner, yay! I’m looking forward to our family day very much!

I’m feeling good, so I thought I would share a recipe that might make you all feel good too! Steven Michael made this for the first time a few months ago, before this blog was ever a thought. When we decided to start on this blogging adventure, we knew Bang Bang Shrimp Bowls had to make an appearance at some point. Here they are! These are so sweet and saucy, and I’m a sucker for a good noodle dish. Maybe you moms out there can request it for your special dinner tomorrow!

What are your plans for Mother’s Day? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. As usual, this sounds fab!
    Seeing the lo mein noodles made me wonder if you have a good recipe for cold noodles with peanut sauce. No one here in Washington seems to do those “New York style” (aka – the right way)!

  2. I thought this was going to be difficult to make but tried it and loved it
