6 Girls & Shrimp Scampi

 

Another day, another dinner party. A great thing about this particular dinner was that the meal became a collaborative effort and not just one person putting on the show (not that I mind that either). The menu was extensive. If I had buttons on my pants they would definitely be unbuttoned at this point.

The starter of tapenade rolls and sausage balls almost filled everyone up before I even started cooking dinner.

After Brooks finished making her bars in the kitchen, I started on my shrimp scampi. I found the recipe on a blog and picked it because it sounded yummy and easy, and it was! I boiled a pound of wheat pasta, then sautéed garlic and shallot in a pan with olive oil and butter, added the shrimp, then the white wine. Simmer, simmer. Dump the mixture into the cooked pasta, and add the Asiago-Parmesan mixed cheese (found this at Trader Joes, super cheap and delicious) and chopped parsley.

I did the dishes listening to Christmas music on the radio courtesy of Delilah and reminded myself of my Grandmother – in a good way. I ❤ the holidays Open-mouthed smile
