I'm so excited!!! Can you tell!!! This is my first give away!!!

Not only having the give away but having it for a product that I really love.

Good luck to everyone and please, please leave me comments......I want to see lots of names! Just make sure I have a way to contact you to let you know that you won!
Now for a great Old Bay recipe. This comes from a little cookbook that we put together at my youngest son's preschool several years ago. You can really vary this recipe and add veggies to it. It calls for green onions and mushrooms and I didn't have any on hand so they were omitted but that didn't really matter. I also used 3 well rounded teaspoons of Old Bay instead of 3 tablespoons the recipe called for. I think it would also be great with parmesean cheese. I will try adding that next time. This is one of those recipes you can just "play around" with.
1 stick of butter
1 bunch green onions (chopped)
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1 lb shrimp (peeled and deveined)
8 oz whipping cream
3 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning
1 box linguini (cooked and drained- do not rinse)
Melt butter in a skillet; saute onion, mushrooms and garlic; add shrimp to stir fry; add whipping cream and Old Bay; simmer until heated; serve over cooked linguini.
