Because not every meal has a story. At least not one I can remember.

Sheet Pan Greek Chicken and Vegetables from Budget Bytes

This is most certainly not a sheet pan.

Can't remember all the things I changed in this recipe, but I know I used cilantro instead of parsley.

Shrimp Scampi Florentine from All Recipes

My sister's plating was on point.

The shrimp in the pan wasn't as aesthetically pleasing, so we only took one type of photo. This is probably my favorite recipe from All Recipes, so I might make a full post about it in the future.

Holding up these pans for the pictures is like a workout.

We made this the other day since my sister mentioned really wanting some Spanish rice. As you can see in the photos, I replaced the artichokes with green bell peppers because that's what I had on hand. And I used chicken broth instead of vegetable.

We make a lot of rice dishes.

And yes, everything in this post is garnished with cilantro.
