My rockin’ days are over..actually, I don’t think they were ever here!
Maybe I missed them..:)
So it’s a quiet evening at home…which is fine with me, as the roads are slippery..
The huge snow storm of the 20th was almost gone..but now we have a new blanket..
The Three Kings are thinking 4 wheel drive might be good..
They arrive on Jan. 6th…Little Christmas, which marks the end of the Christmas season…and when the decorations start getting packed away..
Tonight, just a dinner for 2, for the last day of 2009. You can click to enlarge the pic…
A little red , black ,white, and plaid….
Tonight’s dinner is eggplant parm and stuffed shells..Mike prepared it..but we didn’t eat yet, so I can’t show you! :)
But since I am joining Gollum for Foodie Friday…some food, which we had last night.. Please visit Designs by Gollum for the other participants..
Shrimp over a bed of linguine with sauteed spinach with a wine sauce.
Dredge the raw shrimp in seasoned flour, (save the flour) and quickly brown in a little olive oil and butter.Remove the shrimp to a plate and keep warm.
Chop some scallions and saute.
Drain off most of the oil and deglaze the pan with fresh lemon juice and dry white wine .
With the seasoned flour from the shrimp you can thicken the sauce a bit. Whisk with some water and add slowly till you get the sauce the way you want it.
Simmer, I add an envelope of G.Washington Gold. You find that near the Herb Ox packets in the market.
In a separate pan, take fresh spinach, salt, pepper and a dash of sugar.
Saute in some olive oil..when it is wilted, stir in some freshly grated locatelli cheese.
Cook your linguine.
Make a bed with the pasta, sauteed spinach in the middle, and spoon the shrimp and sauce over the top.
Garnish with scallions, fresh parsley and lemon, and a few grinds of fresh pepper..
I am sorry, but I don’t use recipes except to bake..so I can only give you instructions without exact measurements.
Good health and good times..
Many blessings to you and your families..
And as always, thank you for visiting me!
