Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!


Leftover Turkey Casserole



The Thanksgiving leftovers are slowly being eaten up, but as it usually goes, everyone is getting tired of the same meal each night. I found this recipe for leftover turkey casserole at Allrecipes. It spruces up your leftover cranberry sauce and potatoes by adding in a few additional ingredients, like mayo and cheese. It came together in less than 10 minutes and was a satisfying meal. Enjoy!

Notes:
- I goofed a bit and added all of my stuffing on the bottom layer. I think I preferred it this was as it allowed the potato mixture on top to get slightly browned.

2. Combine 1/4 cup mayo with cranberry sauce; evenly spread over turkey.

3. Combine remaining 1/2 cup mayonnaise-type dressing, potatoes and cheese in large bowl. Evenly spread on turkey, then top with remaining 2 cups stuffing.

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!
