Easy Italian Shrimp - 3 points

Easy Italian Shrimp
1 lb medium shrimp

2. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Spray with kitchen spritzer. Saute garlic for 1 min.
3. Add shrimp and dressing to skillet. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
4. Yields 4, 3 point servings

I just finished teaching a great book - A Long Way from Chicago, by Richard Peck. It is a cute book about a cantancerous granny, set during the days of Al Capone. Reading it reminds me of one of my favorite restaurants, and purported Al Capone hide outs, High Point in Monteagle, Tennessee (follow the link and you will drool reading the menu). I look forward to making another trip there and telling you all about it.

I hope that everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day. Mine was quite nice (and I have recipes to share with you later this week from Simon's school and my dinner with Stone). Stone sent me a balloon that read, "I love you". It was quite commical as in each one of my classes a student would ask, "Hey, who loves you?" I of course said, "Lots of people. But only one of them sent me a balloon."

  8. Thanks everyone! Sherry - you have to stop at High Point next time. The food and the story of the house are great. There is also a very dangerous cocktail there called a Jolly Rancher that does indeed taste like candy.
