Shrimp Stroganoff on Sunday

Published 5:11 pm Sunday, July 31, 2011

My friend Cathy shared an Oh-So-Yummy recipe yesterday. She said it was simple and indeed it is.  So easy.

Easy enough, and yummy enough, to satisfy the Sunday crowd coming through the door post-worship.

I wrapped potatoes in foil and placed them baking in a 200 degree oven while I went to church. Before heading out I whipped up the stroganoff sauce on the stovetop. The taste was as divine as its smell. Simple and pleasing to all the senses.
