My Secret Santa brought me a new cook book and I'll be making a recipe from it tonight.
NEW ENGLAND SHRIMP CREOLE

1 ONION
1 RED PEPPER
1/2 CUP CELERY
1/4 CUP BUTTER
1 CAN STEWED TOMATOES
1 TABLESPOON CORNSTARCTH
2 TABLESPOONS WATER
SALT AND PEPPER
1 TABLESPOON PARSLEY
1 POUND COOKED SHRIMP
recipe also called for 1/2cup chopped pimento but...safeway didn't have any so I'm leaving that out...sigh...

Melt the butter and cook the chopped onion, celery, and red pepper until soft ( I'll add some garlic too)

Add the tomatoes

Boil

Mix the wather and cornstarch then mix it with the tomato mixture. Heat until thick. Add shrimp and parsley, salt and pepper. I'll serve it over white rice. Salad and bread to go with.

Thank you again santa.

Well, we're going to the Jackalope tonight, so I'm not entirely sure what we're having, but if I had to guess I'd say I will probably go with the cherry glazed elk w/ truffle potatoes and veg medley and a nice pinot noir.

Ham and bean soup, cornbread, and green salad. For appetizers: cheeseball, elk salami with gruyere, swiss, cheese, and crackers, and chipotle sausages in BBQ sauce with a glass of eggnog and rum.

Seriously!! Is NO ONE cooking tonight??????

If not, what are your plans?

We are going to a party at 8:00 pm. I'm taking some peanut butter marshmallow fudge, but there will be sweets and savories on the snack table. The hostess is our local coffee-shop owner, who is a heck of a cook!

<quote>Buck and I always celebrated with a meal of fondue from his Swiss grandfather's recipe. Funny, I picked up the ingredients yesterday because I thought I'd be sharing it with my friend, so guess I'll have fondue with my kitties.</quote>

Katie, I'll be with you in spirit.

You didn't miss it, scoobagirl. It had been posted in the wrong forum. When I merged the two, I put it in it's normal place. No, you aren't losing your marbles.
