Gluten-Free Living – A Delicious Dish

Champagne Shrimp Risotto

SOURCE: https://www.bettycrocker.com

Ingredients

1 lb uncooked medium shrimp in shells, thawed if frozen

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup brut champagne, dry white wine or Progresso™ chicken broth
1 1/2 cups uncooked Arborio or other short-grain white rice
2 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton), warmed
1 cup clam juice or water, warmed
2 cups chopped arugula, watercress or spinach
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Steps

  • 1.
    Peel shrimp. Make a shallow cut lengthwise down back of each shrimp; wash out vein.
  • 2.
    In 12-inch skillet or 4-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, until tender. Reduce heat to medium. Add shrimp; cook uncovered about 8 minutes, turning once, until shrimp are pink. Remove shrimp from skillet; keep warm.
  • 3.
    Add champagne to onion in skillet; cook until liquid has evaporated. Stir in rice. Cook uncovered over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until edges of rice kernels are translucent. In 4-cup glass measuring cup, mix chicken broth and clam juice; pour 1/2 cup mixture over rice. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed. Repeat with remaining broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, until rice is tender and creamy.
  • 4.
    About 5 minutes before risotto is done, stir in shrimp, arugula, cheese and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

    EXPERT TIP:

  • Even though you may be tempted, don’t rush the process! When making risotto, adding the broth a little at a time ensures that the dish will be creamy while allowing the grains to remain separate.Leave out the shrimp and serve this as a lovely main course for your vegetarian friends.

*Shrimp and Rice create an excellent source of iron, a mineral important for transporting oxygen to working muscles*

How one of my favorite Local places . . . That brings me Peace~

This island is a very spiritual place – right when you are on the bridge walking onto the island, you can feel a sense of Peace that comes over you . . . I have said to myself a couple of times crossing that bridge, “soon I am going to feel the Grace of God”. I’m not a religious person . . . but I am a Spiritual person – I can tell you when you are walking around this island if you listen – no iPhone – no music – no talking – JUST LISTEN you can hear that Grace of God.

WHY HOME REDESIGN?

Home Redesigned

The best compliment a homeowner can hear is how warm a visitor feels upon entering their home!  Are you missing that? Does your curb appeal or entry say ‘go away’ instead of ‘come in, sit down and relax’?  Does the energy of a particular  room make you want to run instead of sit down and relax? That is where I come in!

Have you just moved into a new home and are not sure where to put your furnishings or where to hang artwork? Are you trying to decide on window treatments?

Every room serves a purpose and tells part of your personal story!

Whether I can assist you in with a redesign of one room or the entire house, I will work with you on your budget to get fantastic results. Let’s sit down and discuss how you want those rooms to “feel” along with finding Purpose for each room. You will be amazed at what we will accomplished on a budget that you set!

Would you like your home or office redesigned? If you’d like to schedule a 30+ minute free consultation with me to learn how placement over purchase can change the way you feel about your space. Call me (860)961.6824 or Email me: cchomeconcierge@gmail.com

Sunday Grace . . .

Zion Lutheran Church Blackburn MO

Zion Lutheran Church – Blackburn Missouri

My grandfather was a Preacher at this church years ago, the day my Uncle and Aunt being tour guides of all the history that my brother and I had missed growing up without knowing this side of my family or our father – decided this was to be one of the stops. Great Choice . . .

The town is awesome – small town for sure, a population of 286 at the time we were there early 2000. We had gone to visit our dad at his grave site – he is buried at Higginsville Veteran cemetary – https://mvc.dps.mo.gov/cemeteries/higginsville.php a beautiful place. Afterwards, my Uncle brought us into town to have something for lunch, we were eating our lunch and talking – the waitress says “Are y’all good? cause there’s a parade coming soon“. I said a parade on a Wednesday afternoon, well my brother and I looked at each other like two seven-year olds and ran outside.

Sure enough, here comes the parade down the middle of Main Street – I was kinda of caught in the moment and thinking I was in the middle of a DOC HOLLYWOOD scene. I thought how freakin’ awesome is this to have a parade in the middle of a Wednesday afternoon!

By The Grace of God ~ Joey and I had said that morning at our hotel room “that it was too bad we never got to do anything fun with dad.” Well, later on that day I said to my brother “we have to change our story – because a parade on main street in the middle of the week was pretty freakin’ fun” We feel he had something to do with it . . . along with Ms. Bev (our mother)!
