Sorry, no blog report last night. I had my birthday party – I’m 21 and 324 months! J
My bride, who thinks candy Hot Tamales will incinerate the box, LOVES this concoction. The horseradish burn is unlike a hot pepper burn. The difference is that the horseradish heat lends to sweetness and will be gone before you can get your hand around a beverage you think you need to quench the heat. GONE. No more burn! Try that with a hot pepper.
So, what side dish goes with four pounds of boiled shrimp? Well here in South Carolina it can only be stewed tomatoes and rice. We also added a side salad for roughage.
Stewed tomatoes are easy. A can of diced tomatoes, a Tbsp of distilled white vinegar, a tsp of Spenda, and S & P to taste, then let simmer for 30 minutes or so while you cook the rice.
My birthday cake was Angel food cake topped with fresh picked strawberries from a local farm. The strawberries are blended with Splenda and allowed to set for a few hours. (Overnight is best) Then served up and topped with Light Whipped topping!
It was a happy day!
