Peach State says: What’s Cooking?

The only thing on my mind this morning has been what to cook for dinner. I have already planned dinner yet my tummy just won’t stop the continuous rumble. “I guess it would have been a good thing if I had eaten a little more last night for dinner!”

What’s Cooking?

I’m glad you asked! The plentiful bounty of shrimp, pictured above, is one of my favorite! My cousin made this dish for me and…it is so easy!

Shrimp Bake:
1-2 pounds of medium/large uncooked shrimp
Italian dressing
2-3 lemons cut in half
Flat bottomed dish

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Place the shrimp in the bottom of the dish
Squeeze the lemons over every shrimp and place the lemon half pulp down into the dish
Pour your favorite Italian dressing over the shrimp. ( I have used light versions of Italian and Caesar and they are just as good!)
Bake until the shell of the shrimp turns that rich reddish/pink color.

Peel and enjoy!
I serve these scrumptious shrimp with a nice salad and favorite bread!

Need something easier…maybe for a football gathering?

Taco Loco:

Beef/chicken, cheeses, vegies, refried beans, salsas, sour cream. OR:cubed fruit, custard, chocolate drizzle…well I know you are hungry now!

How about Individual Pizzas?:

Well it is time for me to start my dinner! I am trying a new product…

I will let you know how it is…and whether my hubby liked it or not!

Enjoy these recipes and remember…SHARE!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
