Week 37 Friday (9/26/14)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Lemon Basil Shrimp Risotto
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 242 calories per serving, if 8 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

You can clearly see the chopped shrimp,
risotto and the dark green basil leaves.

Don't you agree that it would be better
with a lot more shrimp?

         This is one of the most refreshing dinners I have had this summer. I don’t think I have ever had risotto before and I am definitely a convert.
         I only had one pound of shrimp and the recipe called for 1.5 pounds. Next time, I will put in two entire pounds. I love shrimp and since it is lower in calories, it will be a great addition to my menus.
         The lemon and basil add so much to the dish. Of course, you probably noticed that there is a little heavy cream – but it wouldn’t be a Ree masterpiece without it. I just love her recipes. I wish I knew how to actually contact her.


Fabulous “Family and Friends” Food

Gooey Cake

1 box German chocolate cake mix
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed ilk
1 (12 oz. jar of caramel topping
1 cup Cool Whip
3 Heath candy bars

         Prepare cake according to directions on back of box. Use a 9 x 13 pan. When cooked, and while still warm, poke holes ½ inch apart with handle of a wooden spoon. Pour sweetened condensed milk into holes. Next, pour on caramel topping. Refrigerate.  Once cool, top with Cool Whip and crushed candy bars.  Refrigerate overnight.
         This one was in my recipe box with no name on it. I love the idea of eating a giant piece of this but I am sure it has boo coo calories so it is best to just read it and dream.
