Slow Cooker Shrimp Creole & Prayers For Isaiah

I have to apologize for the lack of posts and late posts this past week.  I’m a bit out of sorts.  One of the things weighing heavily on me is that our grandson is going in to have surgery tomorrow.  Isaiah is only nine months old and this is the second time we’ve had a scare with him.  He was born with a knot on the side of his neck that wasn’t able to be diagnosed with testing.  The surgeon has recommended that it be removed so that we know what it is.  A whole slew of things always go through your mind when something like this happens.  He is being operated on at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and I am sure they will do great with him but it’s still scary.  Not knowing what the knot is is also scary.  You know when your Grandchildren are born you are not prepared for the whirlwind of emotions that will knock you over.  You never think that you can love someone as much as you love your own children but then comes along this tiny baby who is not only a part of you but is a part of your very own baby and wow it’s overwhelming!  Please keep Isaiah in your thoughts and prayers for the next few days.


Today I have a Shrimp Creole recipe for you that is out of this world!  I found and adapted it from Food Network Courtesy of Paula Deen.  The recipe is a little spicy so if your family does not like spice you will want to cut back on the spices a bit.  We love spice so it was right down our alley!

Slow Cooker Shrimp Creole

1 tsp. white sugar
1 1/2 lbs. shrimp – peeled & deveined

2 cups rice – cooked according to package directions

Sauté peppers and celery in a skillet with the olive oil, until softened.  Add chili powder and sauté until caramelized.  Add vegetable – chili powder mixture, tomatoes, tomato sauce, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, salt and pepper to slow cooker.

    • Thank you, Bernadette. Isaiah is a very ornery almost two year old with no lasting affects from the meningitis. We are very thankful! Thanks so much for your kind comment.
