Sautéed Shrimp with Walnuts and Prosciutto; Games people (used to) play — 10 Comments

  1. In our family, Monopoly and Parcheesi were popular but we are all Scrabble fanatics. Did you know you can play a version of Scrabble online? It’s called Lexulous. If you belong to Facebook (and I assume you do), friend me and I’ll start a game of Lex with you. It’s fun, somewhat interactive even tho’ long distance, and a challenge. My real name is Pam Hyland if you care to friend me. 🙂 No pressure – I know you guys are busy.

  2. Happy New Year to you! I played a lot of Canasta while in high school with my friends. I wish I remembered how…have no clue, but I loved it at the time. Beautiful shrimp. A very Happy New Year to you. Be safe, be happy and be healthy.

  3. Oh thank you for reminding me of so many games I used to play! Never got into cribbage, but Monopoly, Scrabble, Chinese Checkers, Parchisi…….all were favorites in my family.
    Sounds like your shrimp would go better with game playing and alcohol. Don’t have to aim at a dish of sauce with your shrimp while inebriated – just manage to get it into your mouth! LOL!
    Have a lovely 2011, Katie!

  4. Competition makes me nervous so I am a total wreck with both board games! But I will take a side of those shrimps though…sounds delicious!

  5. I got rid of a lot of board games, but will never given up Scrabble. I received an IPAD for Christmas and have become addicted to the electronic version – and Boggle too. The shrimp look pretty darn addictive too.

  6. Can’t get my kids away from their I-whatevers/laptop you name it (hey isn’t it time they make an I-Mom?) but.. they LOVE boards games! And they still play Twister with their friends. We’re swamped in board games actually…Monopoly, Risk, Settlers Catan, Carcassonne, Rummikub. I refuse to play Scrabble with them; they go for the score I aim for great words… Not fun.

  7. oh Yahtzee goes on vacation with us and a deck of cards of course, I taught them to play Patience.
    So? When can I send them over? They’ll trade an evening -or two- of board games for your shrimps!

  8. Zoomie, just did it – hope I got the right Pam LOL
    Pam, we still have a few favorites – but no one to play with… boohoo. Family coming in the spring…
    Susan, Canasta! I’d forgotten that! My cousin and I used to stay up all night playing Canasta! Marathon matches! Happy New Year!
    Toni, yeah, I can’t believe we played that… I hope you have a lovely 2011, too!
    Joey, there supposed to be fun – not competitive (but I totally understand)
    Ciaochowlinda, oh dear… I can be very very bad with electronic games. I finally had to delete soduko
    Baking Soda, I’d love to have them come over and play…. We don’t have any adult friends who are into games, sadly. Apparently, they grew up. We never bothered hahaha!
    manningroad, mon mari is a wicked scrabble player!
