Yummy Recipes

Below are some of my go to favorite recipes.

Shrimp Continental
This was my Grandma Slawson's recipe.  It is great on cold winter days, but not the best for your waistline.  You could also make it with chicken.
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoon butter
1 can cream of celery
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
2 tablespoon minced parsley
2- 3 T lemon juice (really it is your taste preference)
1/8 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
2 cups cooked shrimp

In a saucepan cook onion in butter until tender.  Blend in soup, milk, cheese, parsley, lemon juice and Tabasco sauce.  Let simmer while you cook shrimp in another pan.  Add shrimp to sauce and serve over rice.

Flank Steak Marinade
This recipe is one that my mom always cooked when I was growing up.
1 cup veggie oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon pepper
1 large onion sliced
1 cloves minced garlic (I use at least three cloves)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and marinade flank steak for several hours in refrigerator
Penne with Asparagus and Pine Nuts
I got this recipe from my friend Kheresa Harmon.  It is very yummy and healthy.

8 oz penne pasta
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves minced
1/8 teaspoons crushed red pepper
3 cups (1 pound) fresh asparagus
1/2 cup chicken broth (I prefer homemade instead of store bought)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Asiago cheese
2 tablespoons pine nuts

Cook pasta
heat oil and cook garlic & red pepper (2 min)
add asparagus, chicken broth and lemon juice.  Reduce heat and cook 5-10 min (depending on the thickness of your asparagus).  Stir in tomatoes, salt and pasta.  Sprinkle with cheese, pine nuts and serve.
