I had an amazing time in Tennessee. Seeing where I was born was pretty cool, even though it's a very small town. Nashville was SOOOOOOO fun. I LOVED it!!! Memphis was amazing as well. Got to visited with family and went to my cousin's wedding. I will post pictures soon.
Tonight I am going to see Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood!!!! I am SOOOOOO excited to go see them. I have always wanted to see them!!! I will def take pictures
*It's been awhile since I wrote a favorite recipe down. Here is what I made tonight and it was VERY good!!!*
1 small spaghetti squash
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
4 tablespoons ghee, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3/4 lb shrimp, shelled and deveined
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Zest of 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
Preheat oven to 375° F. Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place cut side down on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
In a large skillet heat 3 tablespoons of ghee with the olive oil over medium high heat.
Add in the garlic and red pepper flakes and
cook 30 seconds until fragrant. Add in the shrimp and cook 2-3 minutes per side until pink and cooked through.
Stir in the lemon juice, zest, and parsley.
Season with salt to your tastes.
To serve scrape the squash strands into a pile of "pasta" in the squash shells and top with the shrimp scampi mixture.
My thoughts and prayers are with Manchester during this horrible time. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims. I pray that parents will find their kids. A wonderful night turned into a horror night. THIS HAS TO STOP!!!!

You can any amount you want, but I would really appreciated it. You can email me at Kelsblog@yahoo.com or if you have my number you can text me. Thank you so much!!! Have a wonderful week!!!! I will keep y'all up to date
