Our household has determined to institute turtle soup as a Christmas dinner dish. Michael asked for it for his birthday this past weekend.
I hope we can find more turtle for Christmas.
This Friday we hold the Christmas luncheon for the adults in the family. The menu is simple this year: boiled shrimp with cocktail sauce, green salad, shrimp sauce piquant(Creole) with rice, garlic bread and chocolate layered cheesecake with whipped cream. Sarah has a picture of the cheesecake at her place today. I found the recipe through her. Happy birthday, Mr. G!
I know that's two shrimp dishes, but Lyman's family loves shrimp, and anyone (including restaurants) would be proud to serve the sauce piquant from this book.
The family would only be happier if we'd fry some shrimp, too.
UPDATE: Hmmm, better change that "adults in the family." How about "parents in the family"?
