Food: Dinner Tonight – Garlic Butter, Coconut Milk, Shrimp and Noodles

I’ve stayed away from shrimp for the longest time now, and probably would have still, if I didn’t see this dish. I could immediately taste the wonderfulness  just by reading the ingredients – minus the fish sauce of course – not a fan. So I ran to the grocers and bought a pound of Jumbo Shrimp and the spinach and…well, you know what happens next:
