The Lord Bless thee, and keep thee,
May the Lord make His face to shine upon thee!
And be gracious unto thee,
be gracious unto thee,
the Lord lift up,
thy countenance and give thee peace!

I have learned many things along this rocky road called life! The most important thing I've learned is that I needed a Savior long ago! I felt so lost before the Lord found me and I opened up my heart to Him. Many things were coming at me, not the least of which was a voice telling me that my life wasn't worth going on for! When the Lord found me, He saved me from this lying voice! I invited Him into my home and my heart! From then on it's been Him and I in all things. My hope for you is that if you are on that same rocky road that I was on, empty, wondering if it's worth it to go on, you too will invite the Lord to save you. He will show you that your life is worth living for Him!

Recipes from the Girls Talk @ Harvest Christian Fellowship, July 17th 2010 Roasted Shrimp Cocktail and Cocktail Sauce!

Recipe #1 Monica and Melissa’s Cooking Class!
Serves family of 4-6

Roasted Shrimp Cocktail:

2 lb. bag raw frozen P&D Shrimp Kirkland brand, Costco (Note: Or from the fish counter@ market of choice)

Olive Oil

Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper

Optional: Red Pepper flakes/ 4 cloves garlic, minced

Defrost shrimp in refrigerator overnight or in colander with cold running water.

Pat shrimp dry with paper towel.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. (For easy clean-up!)

Place shrimp in a pile on cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.

Optional: Add red pepper flakes and minced garlic for pizzazz if desired.

Mix together

Spread out in single layer on cookie sheet. No overlapping.

Roast in 400 degree oven for 7 minutes.

(Note: When they are done they will turn pink and opaque (white). Overcooking will make them tough. All proteins continue to cook when taken off their heat source.)

Always remember to wash your hands and the kitchen sink with soap when handling raw meats or fish!

Place cooked shrimp in a bowl and chill while making your cocktail sauce.

Cocktail Sauce (Ina's Recipe with added Siracha!):

1/2 cup chili sauce

1/2 cup ketchup

3 tablespoons prepared horseradish

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon Siracha Sauce

Combine and serve with shrimp.

(Easy Note: Use your favorite store band of cocktail sauce if preferred!)
