One of the great perks of working where I do, is that each year we close the office early and we all go to a spring training baseball game. Well, this year, not only do I get to go with the whole company, but my department, along with the public relations department took off last Thursday afternoon and went to a spring training game of our own. We had such a great time. The PR girls in our office are some of the nicest, funniest, craziest, bunch of girls I know, so I was extra excited to hear we were having an afternoon adventure with them. What's even better about the whole situation is that I have an actual department again!!! Things have been a bit off in the admin/operations department for the last year and a half, so having an actual "team" to go out and relax with, makes me hap-hap-happy!! With all of that said, I thought I would share a photo or two of our fun in the sun :)
This is a shot of the whole group (or most of it anyway) - from left to right: Amy, Kayla, Carrie, Carol, Jen, Kim, Ruben (yep, that's right.. he got to hang with all the beautiful ladies.. lucky man!!), me, and Chelsea.
Melissa (my partner in crime) was taking the picture, so here is a shot of her (on the right) and Carrie.
And of course, the whole group again.. but this time, my lovely new boss, Lorraine, who joined us just a little later, is pictured in the front row far right.
So, thanks to Carol and Lorraine for giving us such a wonderful day of fun and sun and no work!!! Makes all those crazy hours we work at times well worth it!
As for the food today.. well... it might not be as fun and exciting as a spring training baseball game, but it is pretty delicious :) This recipe is simple and packed with a ton of flavor.... But, let me warn you, this is also a pretty spicy dish. I mean, come on, you use 1/4 cup Sriracha - you know it's gonna have a little kick. Just know that you have been warned... try it at your own risk... You won't be sorry if you do :)
Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Horseradish Chili Sauce
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
1/4 cup Sriracha
1 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 lbs. medium raw frozen shrimp, thawed, peeled and deveined
For the sauce -
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Sriracha
1 teaspoon horseradish
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
In a measuring cup, mix together the Sriracha, Worcestershire, oil and ground ginger until well combined. Place the shrimp in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over it; toss to combine. Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together all the ingredient for the sauce. Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Place a grill pan on the grill and allow it to preheat also. (you can also put the shrimp on skewers and grill them that way.. I just wanted something that didn't take up any time) Place the shrimp in the grill pan and grill for 2-3 minutes per side or until the shrimp turns pink. Remove from grill and serve immediately with the sauce. Enjoy!
