Evaporated Milk — Every pantry needs a couple cans


Sorry I know the post says evaporated milk but didn’t have a pic handy.  Will post pic later.  I replaced cream in my spicy cajun shrimp with evaporated milk and I was so surprised how yummy and fabulous it made it with half the calories.  Recipe on next page.
