here's something new to the blog.... A RECIPIE....?!?!

Those of you who follow me on Facebook, already know about my several week long struggle to perfect a dish. The following recipie is where I've stopped messing with it. I don't think it's perfect, but I need a break from it. Therefore, check out the ingredients and try it for yourself or.... feel free to tweak it and post your own results. This is still a work in progress. ENJOY!

‎'Shrimp de Joel-ge'
16 shrimp, deveined, de-tailed, pre-cooked and chopped
1 1/4 cup egg noodles
1 tbs light sour cream
3/4 cup fresh yellow onion, chopped
1/2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 tbs Country Crock light
1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Pacific sea salt
1 tsp chives
2 tbs real bacon pieces

First, cook the noodles in boiling water, until they reach your personal desired softness. While this is boiling, heat your olive oil up in a pan. Once the oil is hot, dump the shrimp and onions in and begin to cook them. When the noodles are done, drain the water off and leave the noodles until the rest is ready to be mixed. Once the shrimp and onions seem cooked to your liking, dump the noodles, bacon, spices, sour cream and butter into the same pan. Cook them all together in the pan, until you're happy with the look of the dish. Be sure to keep a close eye on the pan, as the mixture can get too hot or cook to long and begin to stick. Once you feel it's done, place it on a plate and dig it! (I don't have any recommended side dishes, it's plenty of food on its own!)

(this recipie makes one big serving or, if you want to include a side, this is enough to share! ENJOY!)

side note: all quantities are open to suggestions and changes, tweak as you see fit.
