I made asian lettuce wraps from a recipe I saw on the Food Network. It was a keeper, as long as I don't make it too often. I think it was not enough meat and potatoes for them! :)

 Asian lettuce wraps sounds like something I will like. The rest of the family probably wouldn't. Mine are meat and potatoes (well carbs) kinda people too.

 Those are going on next months menu for lunch one day! I can't wait to try them. I hope my family likes them as much as I think they will.

2 lb shrimp
8 tbsp butter
4 cloves garlic
4 tbsp dry vermouth (I used cooking sherry)
2 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp parsley
2 tsp flour
dash of lemon juice
Linguini
Salt to taste.

Cook noodles
rinse and peel shrimp devien if needed
Sautee garlic and parsley in butter. About 2 minutes.
Add vermouth then shrimp
Simmer till shrimp is pink, don't overcook, salt if needed but if you use butter with salt it probably won't need it.
remove shrimp to pasta, add flour to sauce and stir quickly, add lemon juice, whisk, remove and drizzle over pasta and shrimp.

Its simple............Follow the recipe on the nestle tolhouse chocolate chip cookies but leave out the chocolate chips. lol I am not a big fan of them so I decided to leave them out. Also instead of cooking them in bars or like normal drop cookies we used mini muffin pans. Spray the mini muffin pan with nonstick spray or use mini muffin cups (we did both). They come out soft & are OH SO YUMMY!! We topped some of them with frosting & sprinkles the others were left plain. In fact my granddaughter loved them as well.
