Creamy Broccoli and Shrimp

Today was one of those busy day. Went to a International Grocery store. Bought some fresh seafoods, produce and some different kind of cheese! I had fun. But the weather is not really beautiful. Big storm is coming in and I needed to get back home before my DD come home from school. After spending 2 hours at the store, I headed back home trying to beat the storm. As soon as I enter the house, my DD called telling me that she missed the school bus. So frustrated because I still need to put everything away, and I can’t let her wait out in the rain. So I hurried to go pick her up. Rain pouring….heavy rain… Got home again and I start thinking what to make for dinner. I decided to make some pasta for tonight. An easy one. I put some water on the pot and start cleaning the shrimp. Cut some broccoli. And I ended with a delicious meal! The shrimp is very succulent. So here’s the recipe. Tell me what you think.

Pork Tenderloin with Stir Fry Vegetables

                   Pork tenderloin is considered to be the most tender cut of pork. It’s typically sold packaged in pairs. The tenderloin is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter and from 10 to 12 inches long. It has little fat so will it dry out quickly if cooked too long. The quick cooking of stir-frying is ideal for tenderloin. Since tenderloin is somewhat expensive, serving it with stir-fried vegetables stretches the meat further. Last night I marinated the tenderloin with a bottle of Lawry’s Teriyaki. Just to add some more flavor to it. And here is what I came up with.
