Panko Crusted Shrimp

Well, that’s what was supposed to be featured today.

This, however is the only picture that I have


Y’all, I’m really starting to think that I’m just not meant to cook recipes from Cooking Light. Every single time that I attempt something from that magazine something always seems to go wrong or something happens and the recipes never quite work out.

I was attempting this herbed panko crusted shrimp from the March Issue and I managed to get the breading made, the shrimp peeled and de-veined and even got the shrimp into the pan with hot oil…

When from the living room I hear…


Then I hear,  “Rach, I need paper towels in here.  NOW!!!”

I grab the paper towel roll and run into the living room, to see Nathan with his hand covering the back of Monkey’s head, blood on Monkey’s shirt, and tears streaming down his face.

Oh no. Not Again

Thank God, it wasn’t.

This time, instead of the fireplace, he slipped and fell by our entertainment center.  This time he hit his back on the way down, giving himself one helluva bruise/raspberry on his back, but I think that saved his head.  I think that hitting his back slowed his momentum and resulted in a small crack on the back of his head, instead of a staple requiring gash.

By the time I got back to the kitchen the stench was overwhelming and the black crispy things were in no way edible.

Monkey’s fine 😉

We’ll try this recipe another time (maybe)

I have several yummy things planned for this week – it’ll be fun to fit them in between kickball and open houses and subbing and Easter pictures at the school- can’t wait to share them with y’all!
