I just watched this movie on YouTube! Weird. I had no idea it was being released on Blu-ray (October 14)! I ‘subscribe’ to a guy’s channel, named ‘exhumedvideo‘, whom uploads all these great, obscure movies (and made-for-TV movies) from the late 70’s-mid 80’s, most of which are otherwise NOT available. I started out watching House of Death, an early 80’s slasher that I have fond memories of renting at the video store, then progressed to Jennifer, which I had never seen and/or heard of. It’s basically Carrie with snakes, but I still enjoyed it. I especially loved the discotheque scenes (get a load of those far-out threads!). If you get a chance, check it out. It’s a fun way to pass an afternoon.



Easy Shrimp Taco/Burrito

As you know, every once in a blue moon I’ll come up with a ‘couldn’t-be-easier’ meal idea. This is one of those recipes…providing you like shrimp. All you need is a package of McCormick Zesty Garlic Shrimp Taco mix, frozen (cooked/peeled/de-veined) shrimp and tortillas. Optional items, depending on your tastes, are:

• Sweet, mini bell peppers, thinly sliced
• Shredded lettuce
• Grilled shoestring onions
• Sour Cream
• Salsa

Once you’ve compiled the ingredients, prep couldn’t be easier:

– Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in skillet
– Pour in seasoning mix, shrimp, veggies
– Cook for 4-6 minutes
– Spoon into warmed tortillas with sour cream and assorted condiments

Personally, it seems like I perpetually have a bag of those little mini bell peppers in the fridge, so the addition of those were a no-brainer (plus, they make the dish visually beautiful and gives it some crunch). I also like to add some cayenne pepper to the mix.

The quickest way I’ve learned to thaw the frozen shrimp is to grab a large bowl, toss in the shrimp and fill it with enough hot water (from the faucet, don’t boil it) to cover the shrimp, then cover the top of the bowl with a plate and let it sit while you prep everything else. By the time you’re done, the shrimp will have thawed and you can easily pull the tails off of them.

Enjoy!
