New Year's Eve

Happy New Years!
Yes, only one child in the picture.
And we used a selfie stick.
It's fun.
The other was playing games or something like that...shocking, I know.
The other other one was at my moms, playing games.
Firecracker Shrimp
2 Tablespoons Sriracha
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 teaspoons sugar
Garlic to taste
Mix it all together with the shrimp.
Marinade for a few hours.
Bake in 350 degree oven until they are done.
Keep an eye on them.
That's what I do.
Avocado Sauce
2 whole avocados
2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
Lime juice of one lime
Sea Salt
Mix it all together until it's a smooth, creamy mix.
Spread on your taco.
I also made a chipotle shrimp as well as the firecracker shrimp.
It was just chipotle seasoning and butter in the pan with the shrimp while it baked.

Crab Bites
(somehow, I didn't get a pic of these)
2 cans of crab meat
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup baking mix
1/2 cup bell pepper
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
2 eggs
Mix all of it together
Put into muffin cups
Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Might take a little longer.
Best served warm
Spinach and Garlic Dip
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach
1 cup mayo (real mayo)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder (you might want more, taste it)
Mix all of this together and refrigerate for a minute or two or three.

Champagne Cupcakes
1 2/3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup butter
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons champagne
Mix the first four ingredients first.
Add in all the other ingredient.
Stir it up into a pretty batter.
Let people try it to verify that it is awesome.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 18-20 minutes
1/2 cup butter
4 cups powdered sugar
4-5 tablespoons champagne
Mix it together.
Hopefully, it will turn out better than mine.
Butter Beer Jell-O Shots
1 cup cream soda
2 envelope plain gelatin
1/3 cup vodka (I used cake vodka, vanilla works too)
2/3 cup butterscotch schnapps
Pour SODA into a medium sauce pan and sprinkle with the gelatin.
Soak it a minute.
Heat over low heat, stir constantly until gelatin dissolves.
Remove from heat.
Add vodka and schnapps.
Pour into a pan and refrigerate
We had some overnight guests.
Sterling and another Mike.
They had traveled from New Jersey to San Diego
and we were on their return trip.
They wanted a Warm Christmas.
Didn't happen.
San Diego was cold.
Vegas was cold.
Colorado was really cold.
No warm Christmas for their haz.
Happy New Year's!
