Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled an Egg, reheated 3 leftover Potato Pancakes, Fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Our streak of beautiful days continues today, sunny and 74 degrees! Did a few things around the house and then after Lunch got the cart out and did some yard work. Had everything done so I too k the cart for a ride around the neighborhood and enjoyed this beautiful day! For Dinner tonight Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

I had some large Shrimp in a bag in the freezer. Sat the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare them I first washed them off in cold water and patted dry with paper towels. I then seasoned them with a sprinkle of Sea Salt and Old Bay Seasoning.

 

 

 

 

Next I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the pan on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Shrimp, fried the Shrimp in 2 batches so not to overcrowd the skillet. Fried the Shrimp 3 minutes a side. Ended up with a nice plate full of Shrimp! Love the flavor of the Old Bay Seasoning on Shrimp.

 

 

 

As I was frying the Shrimp I started my Cracker Barrel Macaroni and Cheese Dinner. I picked a box of the Cracker Barrel Sharp Cheddar the other day at Kroger.

 

 

 

 

 

Start by boiling 8 cups of water in medium saucepan. Stir in Macaroni.Cook 12 min. or until tender, stirring occasionally. Drain. Do not rinse. Return to pan. Squeeze the Cheese Sauce over hot Macaroni. Stir until blended and serve. Came out nice and cheesy with excellent flavor. I really like the Cracker Barrel Mac and Cheese varieties that they have. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread and had a slice of that also. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Peanut Butter Carmel Ice Cream Candy Bar.
