Oreo just lays around sleeping when it’s raining most of the time. On the other hand, Smokey just has to check out the wet tub. He is infatuated with water! Oh well, gives us something to laugh about on a raining boring day…
Garlic Shrimp & Mushroom Pasta
This is a great quick meal if you are traveling in an RV or at home and looking for a great meal in a short time, allow about 30 minutes from start to finish. It serves 5 or 2 people with second helpings!
List of Ingredients are:
8 oz uncooked angel hair pasta or your favorite pasta, I prefer Mezze Penne. (Al Dente) Cooks in 9-10 minutes
1/2 lb. sliced fresh mushrooms.
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
I lb. uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 Plum tomatoes, finely chopped, or any small yet firm variety will do as well
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese, divided. ( you use half now, half later)
1 Tbsp. butter
1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, saute mushrooms and onions in olive oil in a large pan until tender. Add garlic, cook 1 minute longer just enough time to warm it up.
2. Add the shrimp, broth and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 4-5 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened and shrimp turns pink.
3. Stir in the tomatoes, 1/4 cup cheese and butter. Drain paste; toss with shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Toasted garlic bread sticks and any Italian dipping sauce. I prefer the white truffle infused Olive Oil with Garlic and Tomato dipping sauce seasoning. Serve with a tossed salad for a complete meal.
There was a time in my childhood that I thought nothing of duck fat or quail eggs. That’s because they were plentiful where I was raised. Now that all the Iron Chefs, etc. have discovered our family heritage, lol’s, it now cost us much more for these old familier flavors. So be it! I’ll pay the price! Gladly…
Recipes coming soon..
Well… nothing new is happening so I’ll bore our fans with Smokey chillen by the Dell!
Great outdoor shower when you are camping out in the woods! The only thing missing is the tent shelter for privacy. Instant hot water, no waiting so it saves on propane when not in use! You can also wash large pots and pans, etc. So, no need to splash water every where in your camper!
Still working on getting our grilling, smoking, frying area ready for the summer! Not quite ready as our egg is not set up yet!
Wow, I’ve been searching Amazon for weeks for just the right string of lights to light up my cozy, shady, creek side front lawn! Best camp site we’ve ever had!
Hmmm, looking out my front door is nothing but a creek and a blank landscape for idea’s!
Bummer! First day in the new motor home and it’s raining outside. Oreo and Smokey have been staring out of the window all morning. Guess they’ll have to look for some mischief to get into! Not to worry, Mom’s on the lookout!
