r is for rachel...and a new recipe!

This is my overexposed photo of my bag hook in our office. Too much sunshine coming through the window here...but that's not such a bad thing with all the rain we've had.

I made a delicious new dish for dinner tonight, Creamy Shrimp with Corn & Bacon, from my April '09 Real Simple. I searched all over their website to find a link, but it looks like they haven't added anything from this issue since their "current" issue is technically the March one. Anyhow, Guess I'll have to share it with ya myself!

  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 lb of large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 10-ounce package of frozen corn
  • salt and pepper
  • Cook your rice according to directions
  • Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel and let cool then break into pieces. Wipe out skillet
  • Heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-6 minutes. Add the wine and cook until reduced by half, 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the cream and bring to a boil. Stir in shrimp, corn, and 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper. Simmer until cooked through, 4-6 minutes. Stir in bacon, serve over rice.
