Today was a lazy day all day, I'll have to admit. We watched the soccer game and did very little else.
I cheered for Spain because, after all, part of my roots go back to Spain. If you got a chance to watch it, you were probably sitting at the edge of your seat, like me. And, if you were rooting for Spain, you probably went running around your neighborhood with your arms up in the air when they scored the goal..........no?????
Neither did I, I just ran in circles in my living room screaming...... G O O O O L (goal).......
We decided to celebrate with Shrimp Cocktails.
6 cups small uncooked shrimp
5 cups warm water
1 cucumber, diced
2 small avocados, diced
1 cup ketchup
salt to taste
4 slices of garlic bread (optional)
Clean, devein and remove shell from shrimp. Boil 5 cups of water in pot. Add shrimp to boiling water and let cook (it will curl and the water will turn white) about 4-6 minutes. Once shrimp is cooked, remove pot from stove, let cool about 20 minutes. Move all pot contents to a bowl. Add diced cucumber, diced avocado, ketchup, salt to taste. Serve with a lemon wedge on the side and a slice of garlic bread. You can serve it warm or cold.
