    Default Shrimp and baby bliss red potatoes

    Funny the combinations of food you find when you put a couple of
    ingredients into a search engine. This recipe is a keeper! I cooked
    the potatoes longer than the recipe called for but I like them very very
    soft. I've never used "Emerill Essence" before but it sure adds just a
    touch of heat to the potatoes, just as much as I like.

    That looks good. Too bad you're not my neighbor, I made linguini with
    slivered garlic, olive oil, Italian herbs, and wine. Was very good
    but I could have used your shrimp.

    I like to keep frozen easy peel shrimp on hand for when it isn't on sale
    for cheap in the seafood section. I didn't read ahead in the recipe and
    precooked the shrimp just slightly to pink in the MW to add to the
    recipe but that meant one of my cats who LOVES shrimp got to have one
    plain before it was added. He's my biter so I hope that gives me a
    couple of gold stars so he doesn't bite me for at least a day. He
    doesn't draw blood - more like love bites but he gets carried away some
    times and can leave bruises.

    Shrimp plus tiny potatoes is as standard here as putting butter on bread. We
    like to boil shrimp and toss potatoes and hunks of corn on the cobb in with
    the very well-seasoned water. Crabs and crawfish go into the mix, maybe even
    an old army boot if one's handy. Doing just a skillet full sounds great.
    Thanks, Cheryl. How are you? Polly

    Now that you mention it, I've seen seafood boils on menus plenty of
    times, mostly with crab but shrimp is also usually mentioned. I can see
    why. Again I have to mention the Emerill Essence because the recipe I
    found for it makes up a good shaker jar full of it so I have to find
    other uses. It's flavorful.

    I'm doing much better! My back is expected to take some time to heal
    and I still have stitches that come out next week so I hope it feels
    better when they come out. Several motions are painful so I'm learning
    how NOT to move just yet. Some of my nerves are damaged and require
    time for healing. The PT explained it better than the surgeon in that
    the nerve endings haven't yet figured out how to react to stimuli and
    will fire for no reason at all and I'll get pain and even sometimes my
    leg decides it doesn't want to work so I have some instructions from the
    PT about keeping the walker and/or cane at hand at all times to avoid a
    fall. It is improving, though! One nerve is pissing me off though, and
    that one fires on my right upper thigh at times when I'm sleeping and
    wakes me up with a feeling like it's really on fire and I've woken up
    screaming. Not just a regular fire, but a grease fire! Nerves are
    weird things.

    Thanks for asking! I think I'm on the mend, though slowly. I can
    accept nerve damage and it probably isn't permanent, but the improvement
    in my back is already evident.

    I see quite a few recipes for Emeril's Essence on the web. Did you
    look up a recipe or did you buy it?

    Honestly, you can't let him do that. My mother had a cat that gave
    "love bites" and when she got old, she drew blood. It's not a good
    thing to let your pet be the boss.

    We've grown quite fond of grilling un-cooked shrimp with olive oil and
    usually just salt&pepper in one of these on our gas grill.

    I think I'll make some too. I like Paula Deen's House Seasoning too,
    but I'll flip the amounts for salt and pepper when I make it.
    Christmas is coming again and the seasoning blends I made for the
    younger set went over very well, so I think I'll do it again this
    year. Since I'm thinking ahead and know they liked them, I think I'll
    make larger amounts and give them in small canning jars (is the half
    cup size the smallest?) this time.

    My son-in-law, the one who can't eat spicy food because of reflux,
    loved the creole seasoning I made for him last year. I didn't use the
    entire amount of cayenne and managed to hit the heat factor just right
    (it wasn't so spicy that his stomach reacted), so this Essence recipe
    might be right up his alley for this year.

    Thanks for the idea!

    He's too old to get him to stop. I tell him "no" and pull away and just
    ignore him and he thinks it's a game. I just tell other people not to
    pet him. It's worked out that way. Even my pet sitter won't pet him
    because she said one time she went to pet him and he swatted at her.
    Same with my mom when she was staying here. He's just a **** head.

    Oh, no, he's nothing like the cats I've seen on that show "My cat from
    hell". He just gets overstimulated and really for no reason, certainly
    not from me. I can tell his body language and when his eyes go big, and
    the ears go back and his tail is swishing, I stay far away from him.
    LOL He has a sweet side, so it's not like he's like that 24/7.

    Cheryl and I both have cats that bite. It's not at all a matter of
    "let" because if a cat's a biter, that's the deal, nothing can be done
    about it other than to never trust them and keep an eye out for the
    cat's attack mode look so as to scold before they do make contact. A
    rather harsh scolding pre-bite is the best we can do, and often the
    scold is enough to completely stop a bite, and always enough to at
    least make a bite a gentle one that leaves no mark of any sort. Bob
    is my Maine Coon looking cat that appears to love anyone who comes
    inside, yet all visitors are immediately reminded by me that his true
    name is BiterBob, so no sharp moves to startle him and keep an eye out
    for his "bite face" of squinting eyes and laid back ears so as to
    scold him out of attack mode.

    I'm an Alpha and if a cat of mine tries to bite me it gets swatted
    with a loud "no" or "stop". That's all it takes to stop that
    nonsense.

    Heard that! I would not put up with a biting cat or dog, and "something" can
    always be done about it.

    Some cats are just mean (especially to strangers) will will attack. One old
    girlfriend had a cat like that and I just stayed away from him. He never did
    accept me. He was a 'rescue' cat so perhaps he was abused in early life and
    came to distrust people.

    As for Cheryl and her one cat that likes to play a little too rough....that
    sounds like play taken to the extreme. Even cats are natural preditors
    genetically. Think...a miniature tiger or lion, panther, etc. And as one
    of you said, beware the signs...wide eyes and flat ears. hahaha "Hunting
    mode," I always called it.

    My last cat, Mr.Kitty, never bit me but somehow we came up with a "fighting
    game." As I said, he never did more than gentle play bites and batting his
    paws at me (with claws retracted) when I was play fighting with him.

    One day, I put on a thick oven mitt and started batting him gently around
    the head. He started biting and somehow learned that it was "OK" to bite the
    hell out of me as long as I had the oven mitt on. Eventually, every time I
    wore that, he KNEW that this was a "no holds barred" game and he would go
    ballistic. His ears would go flat and he'd grab that mitt with his paws and
    claws, cling on, and bite just as hard as he could. He turned into the old
    cartoon tasmanian devil. My hand was padded so it didn't hurt me at all.

    We played that game every few days or once a week, whatever. I suspect it
    released his pent up hunting/attack instinct and he DID love it. Without the
    oven mitt he was always very gentle and friendly Mr.Kitty.

    You might want to try that Cheryl. He might learn only to attack you when
    you have the mitt on. Sounds to me like he also would enjoy an occasional
    "no holds barred" release.

    No offense, but that sounds like a "guy thing" to me.
