Ann's Shrimp Etouffee
The main dish in our traditionally non traditional xmas dinner 2012. I was to cook this one, but the husband took over and that was fine as I was making rolls, mushrooms, and a chocolate cake. He's an awesome cook, so there was no doubt he would do a supreme job ;) This is a keeper for sure! We've been to New Orlean's and have had a cajun cook make a meal for us at home as well......I think this was even better!

Cajun Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
I made these for our traditionally non traditional xmas meal 2012 and they were the hit of the meal! I did not have the mushrooms it calls for, so I used regular button mushrooms and it worked out just fine. Other changes I made, due to materials and taste were: I do not buy bread crumbs, I use croutons crushed. This time they were a garlic cheese flavor. I skipped the hot sauce due to taste of guests not being as hot as our family's taste, but have no doubt it would be great with it in as well. I chopped up the mushroom stems and added them to the filling. Last, I cooked them for an additional 5 minuets under the broiler. FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! Don't half the recipe because what is left over (and there will be leftover) makes the most awesome dip ever. I put it out as an appetizer with ritz style crackers and green onions. It was eaten before, during, and after the meal by people who were already "stuffed" but just couldn't help themselves. This stuff is GREAT!
