Last night I sauteed a pound of absolutely lovely peeled shrimp in some extra-virgin olive oil, along with 2 cloves of chopped garlic, some chopped fresh oregano, chopped fresh basil, chopped fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley, a diced heirloom tomato from the farmers market, & a sprinkling of crushed red pepper flakes. Added in a splash of dry white wine (Pinot Grigio) & the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Then tossed the whole affair with 1/2 a pound of cooked Angel Hair pasta. Served with a big green salad. Delicious & absolutely perfect for a warm summer evening.

You're welcome! It really was nice, & except for the shrimp I already had everything else on hand.

The early heirloom tomatoes looked so nice at the farmers market last Saturday morning that - of course - I bought a number of them & am now rushing to use them all before they're overripe. The story of my life at the farmers market - always overbuying - lol! But at least I can console myself that I'm supporting local agriculture.

I put sirloin tips in the little crock-pot and made a gravy out of the stock. The tips were cut again, then added to the gravy and ladled over mashed potatoes. On the side were sliced carrots and red, seedless grapes.
Looks Yummy!!

I made Beef and Broccoli with the rest of the Rib-eye steak. The meat was very tender. It would have been great if I could have found my recipe. Instead I relied on one from a Name Brand soy sauce. It was horrible!! What a waste of good food. Live and learn.
