Yesterday, I posted pics of my beautiful robins and their eggs.

to this . . .

Robin's egg blue

The color of those eggs are what make me love this china so much.

The light blue color around the rim reminds me of the robin's eggs.

The light blue color around the rim reminds me of the robin's eggs. The white rose in the center has a blue tint as well.

The pattern is called Sterling Rose by Royal Tettau.

The centerpiece is a pitcher with forsythia that was just starting to bloom.

You may remember that this is the china that I used for my placesetting that I entered in the County Fair.

I may not have won the best of show ribbon at the fair, but this china certainly wins a best of show in my heart!

Today’s Lagniappe:  Shrimp Casserole
I love shrimp just about any way you cook it. Here is one way:

8 oz. spinach egg noodles
3 oz. cream cheese, cubed
Cook noodles, and drain. Place in 13 x 9 casserole.  Place cream cheese cubes on hot noodles.

1 1/2 lbs. peeled shrimp
1/2 cup butter
Saute’ shrimp in butter, and place all over noodles and cheese.

1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
1 tbl. chopped chives
Mix all of this, and pour over shrimp.
Sprinkle 3/4 cup grated cheese (your choice) on top. Bake at 325 degrees until cheese melts and all is bubbly.
