OK, enough rest.

If the weather holds as predicted, we plan to be on our way again in the morning. We hope to be in Titusville by Wednesday. Our friends Julie and Tim might drive over and join us there. (Come on guys, we miss you.)

In the mean time, I thought you'd enjoy a little taste of how the crew of Walkure eat. Last week Publix had a sale on shrimp, so we bought a pound. Bev hunted through our collection of cookbooks and found this. We modified it slightly to suit our tastes and it worked! It is to die for:

Makes 2 large servings. (Double for 4 people.)

Butter or margarine to taste.
1 pound fresh shrimp peeled and deveined.
1 clove fresh garlic
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon basil, crushed
1/2 teaspoon oregano, ground
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon file' powder
1 tablespoon A1 steak sauce
1/2 cup beer (your favorite - we used Yuengling)
cooked and drained linguine (or rice)

In a skillet, melt some butter or margarine to coat the pan. Add onion and garlic, saute a minute or two until wilted. Add shrimp, salt, basil, oregano, white and red peppers, and file', saute 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add remaining ingredients and cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Beer and steak sauce will create a nice sauce - make sure you save it to toss into pasta.
Toss the sauce and shrimp into a bowl of freshly cooked and drained linguine. Toss thoroughly to mix sauce through the pasta. Serve and enjoy!
