Fiddlehead and Shrimp and Pasta Experiment
It all started when I went to the farm that I belong to (CSA but with coupons to the farm store instead of a box of random stuff) and I saw fresh and local fiddleheads. The only time I have tasted fiddleheads was in Hawaii many moons ago. I mean many many many moons ago.
These little guys intrigued me. I also read that they are a New England spring delicacy. Hell, that in itself made me feel obligated. I mean how often does New England delicacies come around? Don't say Lobster or I will punch you through the screen.
omuy! (it is yummo backwards) I couldn't resists sneaking a little anchovy in there. Oh oh...I just thought of something. Anchovy and garlic on corn on the cob. I just thought of that. I am going to try it. I love anchovy.
Ok, I had to put some kind of protein in there because if I didn't Dr. Food gets really grumpy and turns into a big baby. So, I used shrimp.
Put it all on top of some pasta and called it dinner. Ok, should I tell you now or after I give you the recipe? Now? Uhh...
Hey! This is how I dressed MY kids when they were little. Hi baby Annie with the big nose. Mommy loves you!
I owned a Yarn store in Northern California and this was the logo!
This is my old dog Lily. I miss her. She died on the way out to New England from California. She was my best friend and 9 years old. Ok ok, didn't mean to make you sad.
Here is a current picture of my baby Parker.
Here is another one. I knit him his monster pants.
Ok, you want to know why I am stalling?
I hated the dinner and will not subject you with the recipe. Go eat a Pizza with anchovies.
