Here's what we decided on for a low-calorie, special occasion, birthday dinner main dish. How's that for an introduction! Heat a bit of olive oil in a frying pan, and throw in some minced garlic. Then toss in some raw, peeled shrimp. (This time I left the tails on - just so it would look a bit prettier - but normally I remove the whole peel.)

Time to share a couple of "non-recipe" recipes! Pare and thinly slice enough apples to equal 6 cups, more or less.
Combine about 1 cup sugar, 2-4 tablespoons flour, 1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg, and toss with the apples.
Pile into a pastry-lined pie plate (here's one possible recipe) and dot with a bit of butter.
Top with some more rolled-out pastry, flute the edges, and cut a couple of slits. (You could also do a lattice top - Michelle's vote - or a crumble top - my vote. What's your favorite way to finish an apple pie?)
