Island Farm House Shrimp

We love Shrimp at our house so I thought I would share a very yummy recipe.
Since it doesn't have a title I just made one up.

Island Farm House Shrimp
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 Cloves garlic chopped up
1/2 cup fresh chopped basil or 1 tablespoon dried
1/4 cup white wine
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 Lbs shrimp ( I use same recipe for clams)
fresh ground black pepper

Heat oil when hot add garlic and saute for 1 Minute. 
Add chopped basil, wine, broth, butter and bring to a boil.
Add Shrimp and cover with lid and cook until it turns pink.
Remove shrimp to a really cute serving plate and add salt and pepper to broth  to taste.
Pour some over Shrimp to keep moist.

You can eat it like this with cocktail sauce or I also serve it over noodles with lemon and more basil.
It is so yummy so make lots its also great on salads!

Hen Quilt

There are so many choices in Lori Holt's new book
"Farm Girl Vintage" it was hard to decide which one to do first.

This was a fun quilt to work on except for picking colors.
I hate picking colors.
I love the newspaper  print that is around the edge.

I love this quilt and I loved working on it.
I think I will do the lamb one next.

New Vintage

There is nothing more fun in decorating than to take something old
 and make it new again!
I have had this milk can kicking around forever and I knew
if I hung on to it long enough I would finally think of something to do with it.
Well... I am at least this far...
Now I just need to decide if it will get more added to the bow
or if it will become a planter.
Either way its going on the front step by my Rocker!
