For Tuesday, May 10th, 2011
1 package (10 oz size) frozen petite peas, thawed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound peeled and cooked medium-size shrimp
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded gruyere cheese
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 2 minutes; stir in shrimp, cook for 2 additional minutes, or until heated through; set aside and keep warm.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour; slowly whisk in the broth; add salt and pepper. Whisk in the milk. Bring mixture to a simmer; reduce heat. Add the gruyere and stir until melted and sauce is smooth.
Add the shrimp mixture to the pasta pot; pour the sauce over all and toss to coat.
Deepen their desire to follow your will. Inspire them as they contact potential employers. Give them patience as they wait for responses. Shelter them from feelings of rejection. Protect them from discouragement. Give them courage to overcome fear.
God in His loving wisdom has given each of us the two best gifts we can ever get: a life to live and the love to live it with. Let’s not waste them. Let’s not put them on a shelf and ignore them. Let’s use them instead. Let’s fill each of our birthdays and all the days in between with loving others, helping others, giving to others, teaching others, and sharing joy with others. Let’s truly enjoy these gifts God gives us from our first breath until our last sigh.
