This is the coolest looking coffee drink that I have ever seen. It kinda looked like a really brittle slushy with a creamy mixture on top. Now, I just can’t stand the flavor of coffee. This dislike came about at WIU when I attended college. There were two lines in the morning. The first was to the coffee machine and the other for pop. The pop line was shorter so that was the one I elected to be in each morning. So, I never developed a need or love for coffee. Most people I know love their morning coffee while I still love my Diet Coke every morning. I guess – to each his/her own.

Sharon’s Shrimp and Cheese Casserole
Melt 5 Tablespoons of butter in a skillet. Saute the shrimp or crab. The recipe didn’t say how much, unfortunately. Stir in 5 Tablespoons of flour to combine. Add in ¾ pint of half and half and stir to make a thick cream sauce. Now, add in a few shakes of seasoned salt.
Pour the mixture into a bowl that has 2 cups of shredded mild cheddar cheese and 1 cup of sour cream. Mix together and then add 2 cups of cooked Minute rice. Mix one last time and pour it into a casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
