Let The Good Times Roll
I was wondering if I should post another meal so soon. Then I thought, can there ever be enough food?
This is a summer go to meal: a shrimp boil. There is a more complicated version involving sausage, onions, celery, more guests and a crazy redhead. This is best done at the beach.
But last night there were only four of us, two dogs and a breezy summer night.
So, in a large pot you steam potatoes covered with Old Bay Seasoning for 10 minutes, add corn, more Old Bay, steam another 10, then the shrimp, more seasoning, steam another 10 minutes. Make a salad, heat and slice bread, place shrimp boil in bowl and serve with cocktail sauce.
Very important to cover your table in newspaper as shrimp shells and corn cobs are discarded directly onto table. When bowl is empty roll up "tablecloth" and throw in trash.
For dessert, gelato, freshly picked raspberries and lots of laughter.
