>> Thursday, May 7, 2009 – shrimp
Sorry bout the lack of posts. There's many reasons for it. One of them being that Blogger has been so frustrating the past few days and not uploading my pics properly >:(
Another, major one, is my photography obsession. Allow me to explain. whenever I make food I have, have, HAVE to take pictures. lots of pictures. like AT LEAST 50. Yah. So...this makes it waaaayyyyyy to hard to try to sort through all of em, pick which ones I actually like, then put em through photoshop, and upload onto blogger (which as I did mention is being ... **insert special word here* )Also, for my food photography I like to do it during daylight hours, so this week I have baked stuff that HASNT lasted till the next morning. Thus no pictures :(
Anywho, the solution? Im going to try try TRY to take less pictures. TRY SO HARD :( And also try to bake early so I have time to take pics before it gets dark.We shall see what happens ;)
NOW, on to the yummy nummy shrimp :)
I actually made this over a week ago...but oh well here they are now! This was a on the whim sorta thing. My dad said he wanted battered shrimp for lunch, and asked me to call my mom (who was at work) about how to make them. I obliged. However, the original recipe was too bland for my liking (flour and eggs) so I....*got tad creative*
Mix together approx:
1/2 cup sifted flour
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
salt and pepper to taste
**adjust to personal taste.
Then beat an egg (or 2) and dip your shrimp into them and toss it into the flour mixture, and toss it into a frying pan for about 2-3 min for each side.
Then you're done!:) Pretty easy no? but SOOO good. Just looking at these is making me crave some more!:P
I'm going to try to get MORE posts up this week, especially since summer courses start in a few days :/
