So right about now I am swimming in tomatoes, which is a blessing of course, but also has me trying to come up with creative ways to use the summer's bounty. After canning 20 pints of salsa, 20 cups of diced tomatoes, and making numerous Caprese Salads, Tomato Soups, and Marinara Sauces, I decided to give BBQ sauce a try. The result was fantastic! My husband smokes briskets and ribs nearly all year long so we definitely use a lot of BBQ sauce.

A few of my favorite memories from childhood revolve around Shrimp Scampi. It was a meal my grandma cooked for me when I would visit her. And it was something she always included on her Christmas Eve menu, with lots of other wonderful fish dishes. Also, I remember eating lunch at Red Lobster with my dad and sister when I was in high school. We would order the shrimp scampi for lunch and dip those yummy little Cheddar Bay biscuits in the sauce. I love shrimp scampi, which can be a very nourishing and healthy meal if you make it at home.
