Gotta try this at home

Last night we had our family over for dinner, that would be real blood related family and our neighbor-hill family,

I wanted to try something new and as I usually do, I decided to try out a new recipe so the crowd became my guinea pigs.

I wish I could make it happen where I actually made the new dish sometime before I actually prepared it on the fly for guests!

I love cook books and pulled out one of the many taking up precious shelf space in the kitchen, flipped it open and found a beautiful picture of Greek-Style Scampi.

This was it, Greek-Style Scampi with Olive Orzo, farmer’s market asparagus, fresh rosemary & salt bread, Robertson green salad and Childs lemon meringue pie.

It turned out beautifully, easy to make ( and I made it ahead of time) and very tasty!
