Dinner Tonight...

Okay, so I've cooked for a change.

mainly it's b/c this is something that I enjoy eating...but, my hubby doesn't enjoy it as much as me, and so he doesn't cook it...

Seafood Stew

1 c. green bell pepper
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
1 6 oz. can tomato juice
1 c. chopped frozen okra
3 cans (4 oz. each) cooked shrimp
2 cans (4 oz. each) crab
3/4 c. quick cooking rice

In a large pot, cook the chopped bell pepper & onion in hot oil until tender. Stir in cornstarch. Add the undrained tomatoes & tomato juice. Cook & stir until bubbly; add okra. Bring mixture to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer 10 minutes. Stir in shrimp, crab rice, and 1 1/4 cups water. Return mixture to boiling. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for about 5 minutes or until rice is tender.

I think it's so yummy! And, it's not spicy, so that makes me happy.

Yummy! That sounds really good. The only thing I would probably leave out is the okra, since I'm not a fan.

I cooked shrimp fetticcini (spell?) and jambalaya this week. There were both very good and easy.

Oh that sounds like a gumbo a lady I used to work for used to make.

Okra is good stuff!

Actually, that sounds pretty good. And, for the record, I've never had okra that wasn't fried or, worse yet, deep fried!
