One of the things I really want to do with Hipstir Fresh is to create meals for singles and couples to enjoy. Guys, if you want to impress your girlfriend one evening with an easy fresh meal you can do so! And of course ladies, if you don't know how to cook, this can be a great start for you, because lets face it, Men LOVE to eat. =]
So Im absolutely in love with Kings of Leon and I will be seeing them in concert this Saturday. So they are my inspiration for our first Hipstir Fresh Recipe. Charmer is one of the funniest songs Ive ever heard and it might startle you when it first begins. But one way I like to charm someone is when I make a delicious pasta. Pasta is easy and oh so yummy!! I encourage you if you have an Aldi's Store close to you....Make use of it. I can buy a 16 oz. bag of medium raw shrimp for $3.99 and I used their bag of fresh spinach also which is very affordable.
