Unexpected Guests - Stretching Meals

What do you do when you buy those two lovely...well in my case it's the gorgeous looking little racks of lamb...for what you thought would be a dinner for two and your favorite...friend/relative...calls and you invite him/her/them over?

Easy...defrost that bag of shrimp you have in the freezer for just such occasions. Now you have surf 'n turf!
And serve it over my new best friend...cauli-fried "rice"

How easy was that? You can stretch a dinner for 2 to feed 6 in a flash and everyone thinks you've been expecting them all along.

So, once again (I can't say it often enough) take a deep breath and enjoy the holiday season - even those crazy days!

Thank God for freezers!

I have got to try that 'cauli-fried rice' It looks so good...when I get back to my own kitchen.

Merry Christmas!
