Shrimp Scampi

Happy First Day of Spring!

  On this week's Maple Hill Hop,
we hosted a giveaway sponsored by Mary's Heirloom Seeds.
Congratulations to Deborah of The Farmer's Wife.
Please email me at,
and we'll get your kitchen herb kit sent out to you
to get your spring kick-started!


Big K loves shrimp.
Boiled, broiled, barbecued or fried,
he'll take it any way he can get it.

I had a hankering for some garlic pasta,
so I found this recipe from Ina Garten for shrimp scampi.
Shrimp for him, pasta for me.
What's not to love?
This one has made it into our Family Recipe Book.
