Shrimp Dinners and Rhubarb Nightmares

Last night I was inspired by SeaSaltwithFood as usual and decided to make my take on this delicious garlic/ginger shrimp with broccoli dish for dinner. I especially wanted to do it because Jon has been fighting a cold all week and I wanted to give his belly the super good vitamins and nutrients that broccoli, ginger, and sure, shrimp had to offer. We're talking flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamin C, folate, and potassium (that help prevent heart disease), Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Selenium ( a powerful antioxidant that has been linked to a lower risk of certain cancers), and yea- B12 also. So you can imagine how delicious and good I felt about serving my fat man this delectible meal. Plus- both of us had leftovers for work today. :)

It was really easy to make. Check out seasaltwithfood for this recipe and more easy and scrumptios


On another note: Today I am saddened by the mission that is eating Rhubarb. I have read about how delicious this fruity vegetable is, and you best believe me that Jamie Oliver has a whole butt-load of amazingly simple recipes for this delectable delight. Its usually paired with strawberries (which makes me very happy). I always thought- hey- even though I have never seen it in my local grocery store, Im sure that I can just grow the damn thing for myself.
Rhubarb takes an average temp of 40 degrees to live and prosper! :(
Not even the inside of my house is that cold!
Upon further research, I found that I just CANNOT be grown in florida (especially miami) NO MATTER WHAT, so get that damn idea outta your head pooka!!

I then proceeded to try and locate dealers on the inter web that would sell frozen rhubarb and I gotta say.. it all looked shady to me.
Im sure I can find somewhere to get it online.... Im just worried about the flavor that it will have when it arrives :(
Its going to have to be frozen, and what if its just some dude who harvested it whenever and had it sitting in his freezer forever? Ahhh Rhubarb... you are a creul, creul delight. :(
