Langostinos!!!

Tonight for dinner I made langostinos. You can get them at the frozen section of Trader Joe’s. They taste like a mix between shrimp and lobster. Yum!!!

I made a very simple recipe that I made by looking at some other people’s recipes and using what I liked and leaving out what I didn’t. 

First I started to thaw the langostinos in a bowl of warm water. I chopped up a red onion. I used preminced garlic. I heated up some olive oil and some butter in a pan and added in the onion and garlic. I added in half a cup of my favorite wine, dry Riesling. I then added the langostinos. They were still semi frozen, oh well.

While this was being prepared I had set a pot of salted water to boil. I threw in pasta. This time it was orecchiette. I let the wine sauce simmer for a while while I nursed the baby upstairs.  I microwaved some frozen broccoli as an easy side dish. That I tossed with olive and grated parmigiana reggiano. 
On a side note, baby is obsessed with this banana toothbrush. I brush her teeth with it and she gives me the biggest smile.
