Dinner and small batch dessert

Shrimp with brocoli and mushrooms on lemon angel hair

small batch baking peanut butter tart Posted by Picasa

My poor Robbie is home with a bad ear infection so, when she asked me to make a dessert that she would enjoy, I didnt think twice about indulging her. I handed her the small batch baking book and she picked peanut butter tart. I was a bit skeptical because the filling was nothing more than sugar, 1 egg, 2tbls sour cream and peanut butter( vanilla too, but I forgot to add it). Crust was choc. sandwich cookies) I used a low fat kind that I had here) and 1tbls of butter. These were supposed to be made in small tart pans, but I only have the trusty heart shaped springforms. The topping was once again supposed to be a ganach calling for heavy cream( 1tbls). I didnt have any, nor did I want to buy some since we're going away next week, so I improvised with skim milk and a bar of some type of belgian choc. with praline filling. The topping was a tad thin, but still tasty. This was by far the best recipe from the cookbook.

Dinner was cooking without a recipe. I sauted some shrimp with mushrooms, brocoli and wine. I threw in the juice of half a lemon and some penzey's greek seasoning. I added a dash of crushed red pepper flakes to the mix. This was served over Giada's lemon spagetti( angel hair here). Yummy, a nice light dinner.

Tomorrow, Christine and I are heading off to the big( NOT) town of Port Huron. We're going to mail off our blogging by mail packages and do a little shopping( and of course eat out some lunch and dinner). No cooking tomorrow thank gawd. I love it, but something I do get sick of it( shhhhh, dont tell anyone
