Last night, I had Michelle the Cook over for supper and we watched "The Sound of Music Live" from the DV-R. I do love the movie version and was quite happy with the live televised version. The only thing I would have done differently if I ran that show would be to work on the audio levels. There were times the music was so loud (which sounded good), it drowned out the singing. But at least with Carrie Underwood (who I've never heard a single one of her songs) had enough volume for almost all of the program.
For supper, I decided to break out the crock pot. I looked up recipes for shrimp and came up with the "Company Casserole" recipe.
- 1 1/4 cup raw converted rice
- 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
- 3 cups chicken broth (I used almost 4 cups of turkey broth)
- 4 cups cut-up cooked chicken (leftover turkey here too)
2 cans sliced mushrooms, drainedI substituted a can of drained diced tomatoes because I didn't have mushrooms
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1 package (12 ounce size) frozen shelled shrimp
8 green onions, choppedI went for my staple, powdered garlic, instead 2/3 cup slivered almondsleft them out because I figured they'd get soggy
