Elizabeth Makes the Scampi

Elizabeth and I always have so much fun together, despite the large age gap between us.  She is always up for any adventure and whatever she does, she does with gusto.  She has a real knack and passion for cooking, like I do, and has a very long and extended “bucket list” of things she wants to learn how to cook.  Shrimp scampi was one of those bucket list items.  Don’t Skimp on the Scampi  Yesterday, she learned how to make it.  She did a fantastic job.  On to the next item on the list.  One down, a bazillion more to go.  Elizabeth is my STAR student.  🙂

Elizabeth is cutting her vegetables.  She always has that big beautiful smile, no matter what she is doing.


Cooking the peppers, mushrooms and garlic.  Lots of garlic!


Cooking the shrimp to perfection.


Getting a few pointers and tips from the pro.


Putting it all together.


And voila!  The piece de resistance!  We served it with some pesto foccaccia and a cool, crisp fume blanc.


Toasting to a job well done!


Life is short.  Have fun and enjoy.  Never take it for granted.  It’s the little things that matter most.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.

  1. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
