Before we get to talking about food today, let’s talk about something super serious. Emojis! So basically I’m a dinosaur when it comes to the jargon of online discourse, because I never stopped saying “emoticon”. Like, when did the “-ticon” turn into “-ji”? I think I noticed people using this crazy wide range of little icons several years ago, but it wasn’t until just a few months ago that I finally figured out how to pull them up on my phone. I know. (Is that a dinosaur or a dragon? Close enough.)
The variety of emojis is pretty amazing. Like how they have different species of fish . Or how they have these:, in case you’re talking about the horn section of the orchestra and you need to differentiate.
Probably nothing is more wonderfully specific than the food emojis. Like how I can text my husband what he wants for dinner and he can answer:. (As if I couldn’t have guessed that one already.) Or, “Would you like some ?” “Yes, please, I’ll have a .” I’m probably butchering the usage of these things with my -level proficiency.
Anyhow, today we are here to talk about . A juicy, jumbo shrimp stir fry with veggies in a sweet chili sauce, to be more precise. As long as your shrimp are already peeled and deveined, this is a super-quick, tasty, and healthy meal. I don’t usually do shrimp for weeknight dinners, but now I’m not sure why not, because shrimp is SO easy and hard to mess up. Just chop the veggies and toss them with the shrimp for a few minutes in the pan, and dinner is served.
