Merry Christmas to Us!

We combined a few Christmas gifts this week.
We were given some gift cards to our favorite restaurant - Asian.
We decided to "take out" and share it with a family in our church in our home.
That was definitely a treat for all of us on Friday night.
We were also given a Costco gift card.
Did you know that with a Costco gift card you do not need a membership?
In any case, we tried to be practical ... TP, avocados, nuts, PB, frozen fruit ...
things we usually buy each week.
We did sneak a bag of shrimp in.
So on tonight, we used the leftover rice from our Asian takeout
and had what hubby deemed as "better than Red Lobster."

Garlic Butter Shrimp and Rice

  • 1 cup dried rice
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3 to 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bag (12-ounces) extra large, cooked, peeled, deveined shrimp
  • ¼-cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • shredded parmesan cheese for garnish, optional

  • Prepare rice according to directions or use 3 c. leftover rice.
    In large skillet, melt butter over medium-heat.
    Add garlic and cook for 3 minutes.
    Stir in the shrimp and cook for 1 minute.
    Add prepared rice to the skillet and mix until well combined.
    Add cheese, milk, parsley, salt and pepper; 
    mix and stir for 1 to 2 minutes, or until creamy and heated through.
    Remove from heat.
    Garnish with parmesan cheese.
