My First Self-Made Dinner Creation!


You guys are always so sweet to comment on my random Facebook food photos. It’s true – I cook almost every day, and really enjoy it. However, all of my dishes come from recipes – I’ve never created something in my brain and then had it come to life. Until now!

Last night, I decided to make garlic butter shrimp with herbed orzo and oven roasted asparagus. No, it’s not the most difficult thing ever – in fact, it was probably one of the easiest things ever – but you have to start somewhere! And since Allison asked for the recipe (and because I love her), here it is :)

1 lb shrimp, thawed

2 T butter

You can call me Chef Garneau

3 large cloves garlic

(sautee these for 6-8 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly)

orzo, prepared according to package directions

2 handfuls mozzarella cheese (specific, I know)

salt, pepper, basil and oregano, to taste

1T olive oil

(cook orzo, add all other ingredients and stir – ROCKET SCIENCE I tell you!)

asparagus (however much you want)

2T olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

(drizzle asparagus with olive oil and add salt and pepper. cook on 375 for 15 minutes.)
