Fozziemum and Piglove are our fabulous hosts for Shopping Around The World. This month we are making one dish meals.
Mom decided to make a shrimp casserole. After trying Sammy’s Shrimp Salad, mom has discovered the tasty joys of shrimp cooking. Of course, this is Sammy from One Spoiled Cat.
We are ready for some dancin’ and sliddin in the kitchen. Right mom, OK…. this is serious business. We’re ready for some Chopin… I mean choppin’ and whiskin’. I been whiskin’…MOL Just whiskin’….whiskin’my day away. Shrimp Casserole:
Sidekicks $1.25 (ON SALE) half an onion (cupboard)
celery,1 stalk (fridge)
carrots,4 small (garden)
beet greens 4 small (garden)
red peppers,3 small (greenhouse)
peas, handful (garden)
beans,8 fresh (garden)
Shrimp 1 300 g. pkge. or (2 shrimp rings….$9.98) Only use 1 box.
I do believe that’s all the ingredients my friends.
With the sidekicks, cook them as the pkg. states. As these are cooking, cut up your mushrooms, onion, celery and red pepper and sauté them in 1 tbsp. of olive oil. TIP: If you have someone in your household that picks veggies out of the mixture so they don’t have to eat them, chop everything small. These folk don’t stand a chance in Hades of getting anything out. MOL Your sidekicks should be ready. Pour the whole thing into your casserole dish and stir. It’s the only thing in there so one swish otta do er. Add your sautéed onion, green peppers, mushrooms and celery. These veggies should be just bendable, they will finish cooking in the casserole and the juices will float about in the mixture. Now you will need to pick some beans, peas, carrots and beet greens. For most folks they can grab a handful of frozen peas and beans and go with that. A few carrots from produce would be nice. If, these are uncooked, partially cook them and add to the mixture. The carrots can be shaved into the casserole or chopped, or anyway you prefer them. You can also add leftovers from the fridge if they would go together. Any added veggies should be cooked for about 10 minutes or long enough for the veggie to be just slightly soft. No chocolate and beans….it sounds ghastly!
The final ingredient to add is your shrimp. Mom always seems to get shrimp with the tails on them. This is very unpleasant when chowing down on the casserole so you want to remove the tails. I sent Kali to pull all the tails off the shrimp because it is so boring. She is playing…”he loves me…loves me not…loves me…” thinking of her beau Buddy from the Tomcat Commentary by Tim.
hehe…this isn’t a Persian meal Kali. I know but when’s mom going to make a Persian dish? Thought I’d take this opportunity to show off my new Persian garb.
Cook the casserole in the oven for 15 minutes at 375 degrees. If the casserole starts to look dry add some water…1/4 cup and stir like you’re on nip. After 15 minutes add the tailless shrimp and cook for another 10 minutes.
What are those black blobs in there, mom? You didn’t grab a few beetles and through them in, did you? You know Kali probably didn’t get all the tails off the shrimp so they’ll be a little crunchy anyways. No mom…..sorry. Mom said I was being rude so I’m really sorry, there are no bugs in this casserole, nada….none. PSSSST….mom burnt the red pepper! MOL Bring on the shrimp mom! We’re waiting patiently.
Dad is waiting in the Atlanta airport. Where’s mom? OK dad, what did you do with her?
Aww..there’s mom…rarin’ to go I see!
It’s onward to Miami….it’s Florida mom.
The flight took about 2 hours and these two were planting their feet in Florida soil. Right away they learned peeps seemed crazy here. They all seemed to need a brush up on how to drive a vehicle. The first one to get a lesson would be the cab driver. After a ride that scared the cwap outta them they were at the hotel on Miami Beach. Immediately they headed for the boardwalk and then the beach.
They wanted to dip their toes in the Atlantic….the Pacific had their whole bodies but the Atlantic could have their toes only.
This time mom looks like she’s telling that little girl where the monkey lands in the buckwheat. The little girl looks scared.
My good cod, you do take a lousy picture mom. MOL
After scaring small children, mom called it a day and retired to the hotel. Dad decided to keep her company. She may be odd but she sure isn’t boring. Have a great weekend my friends.
