haha you guys might get a kick out of this--sometimes, i wanna write about cooking and how i have tried this or that---so here we go
well over the weekend i was watching a cooking show---i think it is called something like "the pioneer lady"---anyway she made a shrimp stir-fry--that really interested me---even though i tell everyone, i am sorta allergic to shrimp--just sometimes, it's weird--
i altered her recipe a bit and to be honest--i don't actually remember her exact recipe--
i started with frozen, already cooked, de-veined and de-tailed small shrimp---first of all, i will tell you if i were to make this again, i would thaw the shrimp out under cold water, at the last minute and stir them in at the end of cook time----i browned them a bit and they were very very rubbery--
i added frozen zucchini, yellow squash, corn, and fresh grape tomatoes----she used fresh, corn off the cob and fresh zucchini and red and yellow tomatoes----i got the same color with the yellow squash and the yellow grape tomatoes, were quite a bit more expensive
i used lots of pepper, salt, lemon pepper, sage and lots of margarine and some veg. oil---
we enjoyed it, but it needs a lot of tweaks
i added a salad, that had been bogging my brain up for a couple of days--you know, one of my creations!
not such a big hit---but good
canned pears---would be better with fresh or at least a good brand---mine were too mushy
i browned with margarine and white sugar, some walnuts---tried to save money there too--but i think pecans would have been much better----i threw in the pears with the nuts, just long enough to coat them ---
added about half a small pack of feta cheese---i love feta, but this brand was not very good or something--
then i added balsamic vinaigrette---no taste--so went with a lime dressing---was better
just sharing a little cooking fun today--let me know if you try this!
