I am still doing spring cleaning and some furniture makeover. I have taken an interest in distress furniture, which is taking something new and making it look old. The same can be done with some old furniture you might have stored around the house, but I will get into more details later. This is why I haven't had much time for posting new articles on my websites. However, today I want to share an easy shrimp and pasta meal with you that I and my husband, Stan, really enjoyed and hope you enjoy as well.
The meal consist of two recipes my Shrimp And Imitation Crab Meat Salad recipe, and my Knorr Herb & Butter Chilled Pasta recipe.
