After the chicken casserole fiasco, I lost my footing a bit. We ate out (planned) on Wednesday. Thursday I went grocery shopping; $200 later I came home with more spices and lots of yummy ingredients for new recipes. We ordered pizza, but I did try to make a Crock Pot Chex Mix. We were not impressed. It was soggy, plus somehow, we managed to burn it. Another one bites the dust.
Tonite, I redeemed myself with my mother's Shrimp Creole. I haven't had this in years! Mom used a product called "Hunt's Tomato Sauce Special" which they don't make anymore, so I had to consult with her on a replacement. Everyone ate TWO helpings. My husband normally doesn't like spicy stuff, so I was tickled pink, plus this is a fast easy recipe. SCORE!
