Langiappe and Shrimp Creole

Thanks to the wonderful Vonna at Twisted Stitcher http://thetwistedstitcher.blogspot.com/, I am anxiously awaiting a little langiappe by post and I have joined my first SAL and I will be stitching the LHN monthly ornaments along with the other members of Little House Needleworks Monthly Ornament Stitch-A-Long, Too at http://littlehouseorniestoo.blogspot.com/

Check out its sister SAL http://littlehouseornies.blogspot.com/

I picked up some fabric to use in finishing The Sampler Girl's Be Mine chart as a pillowkeep. Looking forward to posting my stitchy progress. I will be using coffee (or tea) to "antique" my piece so the colors will be toned down.

Enjoyed a little "Quick" Shrimp Creole Pasta for dinner this evening.
Recipe for "Quick" Shrimp Creole Pasta
  • Boil your favorite shaped pasta (bowties work great with this)
  • Sauteed 1 medium diced onion and 1 diced bell pepper in EVOO, add 1 clove diced garlic when onions are translucent.
  • Add 1-2 pounds (depends on the size of your pan and your appetite) peeled shrimp, cook until pink (do not over-cook or you get rubber) -- they will continue to cook in the heated sauce
  • This is the quick part - add one jar of your favorite MARINARA sauce
  • Add a pinch of cayenne to taste
  • Ready to toss with pasta (cooks faster than rice) when heated through
