A while back, one of my neighbors died in his apartment. The police were called and the landlord had to come over with the spare key. Unfortunately, the guy had the chain lock on the door so despite having a spare key, they had to break the door down anyway. I wondered why they didn't climb in the window. That way, nobody would have to break the door down. I wonder who pays for the door. The landlord, the city, or does it come out of the dead guy's pocket? I suspect the landlord had to pay for it, in which case, I think it he kind of got screwed on that deal.
Today's recipe is a simple one that is really good. Also, it's nearly impossible to screw up.
Creole Shrimp with Garlic & Lemon:
1lb. large shrimp; shelled & deveined
1 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. creole seasoning
1 red bell pepper; finely chopped
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
juice of 2 lemons
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1. In a bowl, toss the shrimp with the garlic, creole seasoning and bell pepper.
2. In a skillet, saute shrimp in the oil over medium high heat, turning the shrimp once until just white throughout.
3. Add lemon & parsley, take off heat and serve warm.
