Szechuan Shrimp and Asparagus

23 Sep

Hey Loves. I’m back! 🙂

As you can see, I decided to use a new platform for my blog and I absolutely LOVE it!  🙂 WordPress has a wide variety of custom options and I am very excited about this. It gives my blog a sleeker and cleaner look. I am still getting use to this platform. Blade’s Culinary Creations will be a constant work in progress because I want it to be great for you 🙂

Today was a pretty long day with work, the gym, blog editing and more. After all of this, I still needed to eat dinner. My first thought was “something quick”. Szechaun Shrimp and Asparagus was definitely a great choice. Not only was it quick and easy, it was delicious. Enjoy!  🙂
