Antoinetta Pelligrina Pica’s Shrimp Scampi

And now a quick take–it’s Antoinetta Pelligrina Pica’s Shrimp Scampi!

Well, few recipes get easier than that!

I made a serving for 1. So I went with a 1/4 pound shrimp and adjusted the amount of the other ingredients accordingly.

A little linguini, a little Parmesan cheese and BOOM, a quickie dinner is served! 

A very nice recipe for a quick weeknight dinner. There will be more dishes from Italian American Favorite Recipes: A Book of Favorite Recipes Compiled by the Friends & Members of the American Committee on Italian Migration (195o-ish???)

And now, a coda for 130. Hamburger Wheels……

It wasn’t until after I published my last post did I find further photographic evidence of what went down when Hamburger Wheels happened last month. My dad took pictures.

So I offer these images to you to further illustrate just what a FAIL dinner 130 was.

I, as you can tell, was aware of how bad this was going to turn out before it even went into the oven.

FYI, I coincidentally was wearing that Star Wars shirt the day before Carrie Fisher passed.

And just a few words on Carrie Fisher. OK, a few words from Carrie Fisher:

I really admire her for being so honest about her history of living with bipolar disorder and she did so with humor but without shame. This is a woman who, I shit you not, just had her remains put in an a giant porcelain capsule of Prozac. Carrie, you may be my hero.

And sadly this year we lost Patty Duke, another talented woman who was very candid about her manic depression and became a champion of ending the stigma of mental illness.

RIP Carrie and Patty.
