9. Shrimp Casserole for Dinner

Shrimp Casserole Recipe
*I got this from Kelly's Korner Blog http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/ but adapted it by adding more rice and veggies and cutting the shrimp in half.

You need:
2 Green peppers
2 Onions
3-6 Garlic Cloves
1 package fresh mushrooms (I like Baby Bellas)
1 box wild rice mix (with the seasoning packet)
2 cups regular cooked brown rice (cooked in steamer)
1/3 pound frozen cooked shrimp
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 block of sharp cheddar cheese (grated)

Steps:
1. Cook package rice according to box at the same time, cook brown rice in steamer. You've got two different kinds of rice going. Theoretically, you could use 3 packages of wild rice or 3 cups of plain brown rice--but I like the combination. Any rice will do.
2. Chop peppers and onion and stir fry in butter until soft, add garlic and fresh mushrooms at the end of cooking
3. Defrost shrimp by running hot water over it
4. When rice is finished, stir together both kinds of rice, peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic, and shrimp. Add the can of cream of mushroom soup. Stir well.
5. Stir in half of the grated cheddar cheese.
6. Butter a large casserole dish. Pour in rice, veggie, shrimp mixture. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar on top.
7. Bake for about 30 minutes on 325-350.
8. I like to make this ahead of time and freeze for later in the week. When I do that, I only bake for 10 minutes, just to set. The rest of the baking can be done on the day you eat it.

People Food Recipe (In case you're curious):

Garlic (about 5 cloves)
2 onions (white or yellow)
Bag of Frozen Veggies
3 cups brown rice cooked in steamer
5 eggs
Thai Seasoning
Soy Sauce

1. Chop garlic and onions. Fry in olive oil until soft.
2. Scramble eggs (salt and pepper if desired). Pour over onion and garlic. Cook thoroughly.
3. Boil frozen veggies for a couple minutes until defrosted. Drain water. Add cooked rice. Stir together veggies, rice, and soy sauce.
4. Add egg and onion mixture to the rice and veggies.
5. Season with Thai Seasoning, or your own favorite spices (I like cumin).
6. Choke down the people food while watching Jeopardy. It's tasty, but we have it so often it's lost its appeal.
7. Freeze leftovers (there will be quite a bit leftover) for future lunches.
