Build-My-Bowl Sunday Results

I had a lot of fun today with Build-My-Bowl Sunday!  My good friend Ginny chose my bowl for me.  Here’s how is all shook out!

Step 1:  Choose Your Protein

Ginny Chose:  Shrimp

Mike’s feelings about that choice:  I like shrimp, but usually do not choose it when chicken, beef, steak, and turkey are available

Mike’s excitement level: 8

(Bad picture, my fault!)

Step 2:  Season Your Protein

Ginny Chose:  Cayenne Pepper, Ginger, Citrus Garlic Herb seasoning

Mike’s feelings about that choice:  All of the seasonings are great

Mike’s excitement level: 10

Step 3:  Pick Your Veggies

Ginny Chose:  Bamboo shoots, Cabbage, Mushrooms, Celery, Mandarin Oranges, Onions, Snap Peas, Water Chestnuts

Mike’s feelings about that choice: In order, I’ve never really had bamboo shoots, not huge on cabbage, despise mushrooms, love celery, really like oranges, like onions, like snap peas (very crunchy!), and have no idea what a water chestnut is.  But Ginny chose this, and I said I would eat whatever she chose.

Mike’s excitement level: 5

Step 4:  Select a Sauce

Ginny Chose:  Ginger Citrus Sauce

Mike’s feelings about that choice: Kinda pumped, I haven’t have that one yet!

Mike’s excitement level: 10

Step 5:  Call Your Starch

Ginny Chose:  Brown Rice

Mike’s feelings about that choice: Good Choice

Mike’s excitement level: 10

 

Here is the finished product:

 

It was quite good!  I must admit, it was not what I would have chosen, but it was quite good!  The water chestnuts and bamboo shoots were nice, and I will include those in future bowls!   Loved the sauce and the shrimp was also very tasty!  I think that all of the oranges broke in to pieces on the grill and flavored the whole thing.  Thanks Ginny and make sure you all play along next Sunday!
