Fish Night seems to have been hijacked several times in the last couple of months and last night was no exception. We had a big crowd at our house on Christmas Day for a dinner of standing rib roast (my first attempt at this -- so easy and almost fool-proof with the techniques I used) and lots of veggies. For this Fish Night, I served left-over veggies and leftover home-made dinner rolls along with a very simple shrimp dish. So, after cheese, crackers and tamarind chutney with our drinks, we sat down to green beans, scalloped potatoes and:
- Baked Shrimp Scampi – a la Barefoot Contessa. Yummy and delicious – so easy and great for advance preparation.
For dessert, we had chocolate fondue brought over by my neighbors – leftover from their Christmas Eve dinner. Hooray for leftovers!
This holiday season has just wiped me out – I’m ready for the New Year when I’ll do better next time.
