Sunshine Award & Chipotle Shrimp

I sauteed peppers and ginger and then added chipotle hot sauce to some local shrimp I made served over quinoa, it was so good and not too hot either. We also had some flavorful apricots from the farmer's market. We're getting lots of rain here which gives me a reprieve from watering, more time for playing with clay.

I received the Sunshine Award from Marguerite of Cajun Delights. Thanks so much, Marguerite. I hope my blog brings a ray of sunshine into other's lives, I know your blog does.
