Tower’s Martini Shrimp Cocktail

Tower’s restaurant and bar is high end dining in Springfield. At some point, every character of Guiding Light will impress someone, break up at, make up at, have a confrontation at, a romantic dinner at, a business dinner at, celebrate at, or simply sit alone and sulk at……..Towers! One of the most regular patrons would have to be Alan Spaulding, and with his refined taste in wine, cigars, and steaks, this is sure to be his favorite appetizer. For us regular folks, this is elegant and easily prepared as a large community appetizer for a party, or even more classy as individual appetizer, or even as a snack.

Easy: From your local bulk food store like Sam’s Club, Costco, BJ’s, etc. buy a bag of the medium-to-large (depending on your budget) and thaw before serving. Using Josephine Champagne glasses or Martini glasses, whichever you may have on hand or can purchase very reasonably. (a Josephine Champagne glass is the flat, shallow Champagne glass, rather than the flute shape.) Fill with chipped ice. Hang shrimp, tail side out, around the edges of the glass. Chill!

While chilling shrimp make sauce. In a food processor, puree fresh raspberries. Use approximately 1/3 pint for each cup of Dijon mustard. Mix raspberries and mustard with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Drizzle generously over chipped ice, so that the sauce can be used for dipping.

More gourmet: Place together the same way as described above, but rather than buying frozen shrimp, steam your own for better flavor. Fill a large pot with ½ water and ½ beer. Add ½ a bottle of honey, two tablespoons of Old Bay, and 2 teaspoons of salt. Bring to a rolling boil. Add 1-2 lbs of fresh shrimp until the shrimp turn white. This is only 1-2 minutes, tops, depending on the size. Hint: the least amount of time cooking is going to produce a more tender shrimp

Aussie Pies

Australia seems to be a common denominator in CBS daytime: Cane is from there on Y&R, the Forrester’s launch in Sydney, Australia on B&B, the recent departure of the recurring Aussie Simon on As the world Turns, and the lovable Aussie thief Cyrus on Guiding Light. Fans of these hunks can now nosh on some of their native foods that are easy to make and kids will even enjoy.

In a skillet, brown ground beef, adding 1 cup of beer and two tablespoons of taco seasoning. Drain grease from the beef and mix 3 tablespoons of sour cream, 16 oz. can of carrot and pea niblets (well-drained), and ½ -¾ cup of shredded cheese. NOTE: The alcohol is cooked out, so this is safe for kids.

You can buy frozen puff pastry in most supermarkets (found in your freezer section near the pies). Cut thawed sheets of puff pastry into 10 inch squares, fill center with beef mixture, and fold over, making a triangle. Press the prongs of a fork around the edge to seal tightly. Bake as directed on the puff pastry package. Let settle for 7-10 minutes upon removing from oven.
