Matrick and Eve & Link-Up

Today is a 2 for 1 deal…you get this week’s muse (Matrick and Eve) as well as a favorite recipe to make up for yesterday’s Taste of Tuesday…or lack there of. 

Matrick and Eve is a stationary, invitations, coasters and gift tags designer/wholesaler out of Tampa, FL that I’m currently obsessed with. “In 2014, [Allison] launched Matrick and Eve alongside her husband, fabulously creative team of designers and printers. There was an apparent opening in the wholesale market for their hands-on approach due to their dedication to design, printing, packaging, and shipping all orders within their design studio and production facility. They control the process from start to finish, and have the ability to cater to stores’ needs. This allows them to form longstanding relationships between Matrick and Eve and their retailers. They’re not afraid to take a concept, twist and turn it. They refine their creative process through sketches, style boards, and responding to the market’s needs (they also like to set some trends along the way).
They stand apart by offering custom design color changes and accommodating special requests, as well as speedy turnaround times. With talented designers, expert printers, and a stellar customer service team, Matrick and Eve is excited to partner with you to fill your shelves with outstanding designs!
After only one year in the wholesale business, Matrick & Eve was placed in close to 300 stores around the United States and Canada, including boutiques and retailers with locations all over the US. Matrick & Eve products can be purchased in home décor, stationery, kitchen, museum, clothing and book stores, as well as online.”

I was able to get my hands on their Yellow & White Chevron collection and figured, what better reason is there to have a little dinner party then awesome placemats and coaster! These tearaway placemats are probably the cooles thing since sliced bread! They literally tear off a huge stack like a notepad, are super cute & chic, and then disposable. GENIUS!  To go with the “fish theme” I decided to make a favorite shrimp scampi recipe from SkinnyTaste, and since I had some fresh Brussels sprouts in the fridge, I threw those in too!
Healthy Shrimp Scampi w/ Brussels Sprouts
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil. divided
  • 4 minced garlic cloves, divided
  • 12 large peeled and deveined shrimp (about 6.5 oz)
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 tsp fresh grated lemon zest
  • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • pasta of choice (I used linguine. Recipe called for zoodles)
  • Brussels sprouts, quartered
  • parmigiana, optional.
DIRECTIONS:
In a large pot, cook pasta according to instructions on box
In a large nonstick pan, melt the butter and 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and Brussels Sprouts saute for a few minutes. Add the shrimp, kosher salt, and the pepper and saute until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Set aside.

Once pasta is done cooking, remove from the heat, drain and add the shrimp, parsley, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Top with parmigiana. Toss well to combine and serve immediately.
P.S. That’s the sparkling grapefruit Izze, and my favorite way to drink it is with vodka, a splash of club soda and a lime.  It’s sooooo yummy and refreshing, & pairs well with almost anything. XOXO
NOW IT’S TIME FOR THE LINK-UP
