Herb breaded crusted shrimps with pesto sauce

Well, after a long break, I return again to the blog. Before anything I think I owe an explanation. I was making some plans, including a hudge home improvement , we hope to materialize and end it before Christmas. We have had many projects until we find the best project and we really want to thank the patience of my dear brothers in law, both architects, zillions times the project was changed. And when I saw, the tree leave' began to change color from green to crimson and yellow, and so, we are in autumn .. Autunm scenes
I have to confess that I have not cooked pretty much, we ate at restaurants, buying some vegetables and fruits in the market and cooking fast and simple meals, we're busy searching and requesting materials budgets. But the other day at the supermarket I saw a very good looking shrimps,so, I bought a little just to me, my husband does not like.

Sylvia.. best of luck to you during your renovation. I too have been involved in a remodel.. it's slow and painful, especially with the kids in the house. :)
We are making a decision to move out for a few months to make it a little easier and less timely.

Love this simple shrimp preparation with the pesto sauce. Yum!!
Ciao.. xoxo

Salve, Sylvia, já estava sentindo a sua falta. Mas, concordo que muitas vezes é difícil 'levar' simultaneamente o blog e os projetos pessoais. E esse camarão? que aspecto mais tentador!
