Life outside the box




 

 

I’m
usually someone who thinks “inside the box” when it comes to dinner. I
confess. I do not “cook”. I merely follow directions on the back of
packaging using the included ingredients that I am sure are made from
all kinds of chemicals. But, I’m learning.


This
past weekend I made a new dish, shrimp pasta with tomatoes, lemon and
spinach. I also whipped up a batch of cheesy garlic biscuits.


I,
of course, had to buy almost every spice since I don’t have but a
couple of basic ones in my pantry. I gathered all the ingredients and
hoped for the best. I also had never cooked shrimp before. I would
always by the precooked because I was scared that I would undercook it.
As you can see, my cooking level is quite novice.


I grabbed the shrimp by the antenna and just did it. It was easy. I spiced them and followed the directions as best I could.

When
making the biscuits I did use a biscuit mix, but I tell you it wouldn’t
have made a difference they were great. The only thing is I couldn’t
find one of my measuring spoons so I had to guesstimate on the amount of
garlic salt and I overdid it on the glaze. They were too salty. We
pulled some of the top off the biscuits and they were just as good
without it. LOL


The recipe wasn’t hard at all. The only thing I had problems with was keeping the kids out of the kitchen.

I’m
enjoying my new cooking venture. I’ve already picked out a new recipe
for tonight. We’ll see how that goes. If you have a recipe you’d like me
to try email it to me. I’ll give it a shot.
Or if you try this recipe, let me know how it goes for you or if you have any tips for me.
