Communication 101

Many days Eammon works from home and though he’s in the house, Maisie and I can go the entire day without seeing or talking with him.  Eammon will be busy and involved up in his office and Maisie and I will be in and out with our activities and projects .  When Eammon does emerge from his office he’s generally looking for lunch or dinner but when he opens the fridge he’s often not sure what he should eat.  He knows that sometimes things are prepped to be used in recipes or prepared for something we’re attending or for someone else.  So to help Eammon out as most of these times Maisie and I aren’t home, sticky notes have become common place in our house.

IMG_9184eOn days when Maisie has gymnastics practice she and I don’t get home until right about seven and depending on Eammon’s meeting schedule he’ll often need to have dinner before we arrive home so if I don’t leave a prepared plate on the table I’m sure to leave a note on the front of the fridge.

IMG_9185eAnd then one on the actual food because Eammon can be lost in thought of what he’s working on and instead of eating the shrimp salad from the bowl on the bottom shelf, he’ll eat a bowl of leftover Bolognese sauce from the middle shelf and not even notice the difference.  Of course the Bolognese would have been delicious but as he had eaten it the night before, I thought something new and different would be welcome and enjoyable for him.

IMG_9177eIf he had eaten that leftover Bolognese sauce or something else, see what he would have missed out on, a totally delicious and fresh Shrimp Salad.  I hope that seeing this has you wanting some too so I have posted over on Cook Lisa Cook the recipe for this Super Simple Summer Shrimp Salsa Salad.  I hope that you’ll make and enjoy this salad as it’s a perfect no-cook meal on a hot summer night.

  1. Mmmm...I want notes left for me with all that yummy food at my fingertips! Eammon is one lucky guy!!

  2. LOL! I love how you leave the sticky notes for Eammon! Mmmm, the salad looks delish!

  3. I don't fuss in the kitchen much anymore (I am impressed that while your life is FAR busier than mine, you pull off amazing meals!). However, that salad is just screaming to be made. I can see a run to Whole Foods for shrimp tomorrow. Thanks!

  4. The shrimp salad looks amazing Lisa! I actually just picked up some avocados yesterday, so I'm definitely going to try this recipe once they ripen up.

  5. Ha ha, sounds like Eammon and Rob are two peas in a pod!
