Today’s Menu: Leftovers: Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Pasta Dinner Shrimp Scampi w/ Aunt Millie’s Hawaiian Style Rolls

 

Zatarain's New Orleans Style Shrimp Scampi 004

 
My plan was to hit the market after breakfast but the weather delayed that up for me. It snowed only about 1″ but the wind was so bad that it was freezing it on the roads as soon as it the road. So needless to say we some of the World’s worst drivers in Ohio and if it snows or heavy rain you drive at your own risk! So I waited until the afternoon when the roads cleared up a bit and it was safer for a guy with one leg walking from the parking lot to the store. I went to Walmart and was lucky to find a spot to park and grab an electric cart go shop in. We are due for a larger snow along with some bitter cold weather over the weekend so as usual when snow is mentioned in our forecast everyone panics and hits the grocery store to stock up! This area here in Ohio is so funny to watch people panic just at the mention of SNOW!! Well anyway it me a while but I finally got back from shopping and just wasn’t in the mood to put a lot of effort into cooking tonight so it was leftovers to the rescue! So for dinner I warmed up the leftover Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Pasta Dinner Shrimp Scampi from last night’s dinner. It was just as good the second time around, thank goodness for leftovers! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip free.
