I was roped into a recipe chain letter yesterday (at least one reader was recruited by me as well). Send one recipe to the name at the top of the list and resend the letter to 10 people. You shall receive all sorts of recipes back. I've gotten one so far from my 3rd cousin, Eve, who was roped into it by my sister. Eve swears by this recipe which she got from her sister who got it from a caterer.

Shrimp w/garlic and cilantro

2 lg cloves garlic
I sm. onion quartered
1/2 c. cilantro leaves
2 T fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 c.butter (room temp)
1 lb uncooked peeled and deveined shrimp(medium)

Preheat to 400. Chop garlic and onion and cilantro in food processor. Add the rest (except shrimp) until well combined. Arrange shrimp in glass baking dish, in one layer. Spoon mixture over shrimp, pressing down around w/fingers, to cover shrimp.
Bake 15 minutes at 400.
Serves 4 w/rice, or as an hors d'oeuvre, serves 8-12


By the way, we were down at 3Tides last night and those new booths are very spiffy!

Well, there's no comment button on the last blog entry, so I'll have to comment here.

I, as a blog reader, would like to request that you stop blogging about not blogging anymore. Do not mention anything about not blogging or about not mentioning anything even if urged to do so by other (lesser) readers.

Nobody has the time or gumption anymore, but we all continue to slog on anyway, and where the hell will we get our recipes and pictures of food now? What will we read while drinking our 5AM coffee when the newspaper isn't here yet?

Really, we are all very proud of you (Here at The Institution) and feel you should continue telling us about your adventures in food.
