The nice thing about working for a plumbing company is whenever I have a drain problem, I have a plethora of guys who are more than happy to help out if I will feed them. The latest culprit was the wookie living in my tub drain. Let’s face it, I have a lot of hair. And when it gets wet, it falls out. J. doesn’t understand that it’s just a fact of life! We have a new young tech who lives on his own, and eats a lot of pizza. I bribed him with some real food in return for a clean tub! I’d say we both were happy tonight 🙂 Thanks bud!

Sorry for the bad picture, I was in a hurry to get it to the table.

Shrimp and Bacon Pasta

Adapted from Taste and Tell

1/2 lb bacon, cut into small pieces
1/2 yellow onion, diced
28 oz can diced tomatoes
salt and pepper
1 lb raw shrimp
4 oz cream cheese, cut into pieces
1 lb pasta

Boil water. Salt, and add pasta.

In large skillet, cook bacon until crisp and brown. Transfer to paper towel lined plate. Pour off most fat (keep about 1/4 cup).

Add onion and cook over medium heat until softened. Stir in tomatoes, then crumble in bacon. Season and simmer about 7 minutes. Add shrimp. Cook 3 more minutes. Stir in cream cheese until melted. Add pasta water if sauce is too thick. Serve over pasta.
