Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Lima Beans

As I try to balance our meals over the course of one week (more on that in an another post), I have come to serve shrimp about every other week in different settings. This recipe is made with Angel Hair pasta, which as a child, we would only eat cut in my grand-mother's bouillons (soups)!! So it was quite an experience to start cooking them in a real pasta dish!  Spaghetti could be a good substitute but I like the finesse of Angel Hair pasta better in this dish.

Green Beans Salad with Tomatoes, Garbanzo Beans and Hardboiled Eggs

While I generally make hot entrees for dinner, there are times, especially in the summer, when we just crave a large salad. The following one is a modified version of the French Salade Niçoise. Instead of potatoes, I used Garbanzo beans (chickpeas), which we all enjoy eating. My kids love to pick them one by one in their plate (perfect for small motor skills development!)...
