Dinner last night. This was soooo good.
Shelly's Crab & Shrimp Bake
1 Yellow Onion, diced
3-4 Green Onions, diced
6 Mushrooms, quartered
2 cloves Garlic
14 medium size Raw Shrimp, peeled and deveined, halved
1 - 6 oz. can Crab Meat (you can use fresh)
1 - 14.5 oz. can diced Tomatoes, drained
1 - 13.75 oz. can Artichoke Hearts (non marinated type), drained and chopped
1 can Cream of Celery Soup, unconstituted
1/2 cup Fage Greek Yogurt (or Sour Cream)
2 Tablespoons Storebought Pesto Sauce
a few twists of Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/4 cup Italian Blend Cheese, shredded
Butter/oil for sauteing
Saute onions and mushrooms till golden. Add garlic and shrimp and cook, stirring constantly, until the shrimp just start to turn pink. Do not overcook. They will finish cooking in the oven. Mix remaining ingredients together (except cheese.)
Sprinkle cheese evenly on top. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
Highlights of the day:
* I was up at 3 AM last night. You are thinking OK Michelle how is that a highlight?! Well I got up because it was just pointless lying there and thinking (it's never good for me to think too much.) I went in the kitchen and messed around for hours. It was like a freaking science lab. You'll see tomorrow what the result was. Hilarious. Don't get too excited but it was fun. Very Alton Brown... Mmmm Alton Brown? Is he single?
* OK now you know I'm a crazy coffee addict. Starbuck's just sent me a Gold Card (some new frequent visitor program.) I get free stuff and 10% off all purchases.
* Unexpectedly went to the beach. My favorite place in the world. It was a gorgeous day. Wanna see?
