2017 School Lunches 149-155

Happy Tuesday! Not too many lunches because this was heading into Spring break and I divided the lunches between two posts. I hope you all are having a great week. It's been a little rainy this week. HOT on some days and chilly during others. Go figure.

Curry Shrimp Lettuce Wraps And Noodle Bowls


Curry Shrimp Lettuce wraps are a favorite around here. It's an easy meal to throw together and is pretty healthy. Lots of colorful veggies, it's a great way to get my kids to eat vegetables. I have posted Curry Shrimp before, made with a curry powder. This is a version made with Thai curry paste, both are flavorful and good. Just use your favorite kind of curry. Make this as spicy or mild as you like. If you don't like shrimp you can cook fish filet with these flavors, or even strips of chicken and use those in a wrap.

Fudgy Skillet Brownie

Fudgy Skillet Brownie.
Brownies. I like them crisp on the edges but fudgy on the inside. If they have that papery top, perfection. Easy is a huge plus, virtually no dishes makes it a winner. These brownies are rich and chocolaty. The edges get crisp, but they aren't dry or cake like. Perfect for an after school snack or dessert topped with berries and ice cream. Wrap them up for a tasty gift.
If you are looking for a fancier brownie, try these Fudgy Cheesecake Brownies.

Peasread: Daughter Of The Forest, Sevenwaters #1

Hello, welcome to Give Peas A Chance, no worries, this is still a food blog. Today I am posting a book review. I have posted book reviews here before but they were also product reviews. This is simply a book review.  I picked Daughter Of The Forest up at our public library. We love the public library and utilize it often. This book is by Juliet Marillier and it is a trilogy. I hadn't heard anything about it I just happened to see it on the shelf and it looked interesting. The book is about 500 pages. It's not a quick read but it doesn't take more than a few days or so. Or a whole day and night if you want to be a zombie while pushing your kids out the door for school the next morning.

Cave Tools Pepper Rack For Poppers And More


Grilling season is upon us and one of my favorite sides on the grill are anything to do with jalapenos or chili peppers. I was recently contacted by Cave Tools to see if I would be interested in doing a review for one of their products. They have so many on their site, I've been eyeing these claws though. How great would those be for pulled meats and shredding them for enchiladas and such? I ended up choosing the Cave Tools Pepper Rack because hello, jalapenos on the grill or in the oven. Which is what I opted for.

Spicy Candied Bacon

Bacon. Candied. Spicy. Crunchy from caramelized sugar. Spicy from the chili powder. Salty. Sweet. Droool. You must make these. They are similar to Bacon CRACK-ers. Which are also amazing. So good. I could eat a whole batch, all by myself. Just. As. Is.
