Mary Holsclaw, of Abingdon, sent us this tasty recipe for shrimp in garlic sauce. The recipe is for Paul Addicks, of Baltimore. We served our shrimp in four individual tart-pans.
1/4 pound butter
1 cup white wine
1 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1 pound medium-sized shrimp, shelled and deveined
Slowly melt butter in a large fry pan or wok. Add white wine. Stir in garlic powder. Add shrimp and simmer for five minutes. Put in a baking dish and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Or divide mixture between four ceramic tart pans or ramekins. Put under broiler for five minutes. Serve hot.
Garnish with lemon slices and fresh dill or chives, if desired.

Dill Green Tomatoes
Small firm green tomatoes
Sweet green peppers, quartered OR a few hot peppers
2 quarts white vinegar
1 cup salt
Fresh dill to taste
Pack tomatoes into sterilized quart jars. To each jar add one garlic clove, one celery stalk and four quarters of a green pepper. You can add one hot pepper instead of the four quarters of a green pepper if you like. Mix remaining ingredients and boil for five minutes. Pour into jars and seal at once. This amount of fluid will fill about six quarts. Let sit for at least three to four weeks or longer.
