Today’s Menu: Red Beans and Rice w/ Cajun Shrimp and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 70 degrees and sunny out today, it’s beautiful! After my Tea I headed off to Kroger with Mom, she needed for few items and wanted to go in. Then I took her to Meijer, she wanted some books to read and to their Garden Center. Finally, we stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home I got the cart out and the yard tools and did some yard work out in this beautiful weather. For Dinner tonight Red Beans and Rice w/ Cajun Shrimp and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

For the Red Beans and Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice Mix. For the Shrimp I used the Meijer Frozen Jumbo Shrimp and for the Garlic Loaf I used a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread. This had the makings of a delicious Meal from the start! I got the bag of Shrimp out of the freezer last night and let it thaw overnight.

 

To prepare it I’ll need; the box of the Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice Mix, 3 cups Water, Extra Light Olive Oil, and the Shrimp. Mixed 3 cups of water, Rice Mix and 2 tbsp. of Light Olive Oil in 2-quart saucepan until it was well blended. Brought to a boil. Then reduced the heat to low and covered. I got the Shrimp out of the fridge and seasoned them with Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning.

 

Simmered for 25 minutes, until the rice was tender. Stirred occasionally to prevent the Rice and Beans from sticking. With 4 minutes of cooking time left I added the Shrimp. When done I removed the skillet from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. And done ready to serve! Like the Sausage and Dirty Rice I had last week, this is one fantastic Meal! The Red Beans and Rice is Seasoned perfect. It made plenty of both the Red Beans and the Rice. And the Shrimp worked perfect with it. Plenty of great leftovers!

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! I loved this dish tonight, plenty leftover for tomorrow’s Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ZATARAIN’S REDUCED SODIUM RED BEANS AND RICE
A quintessential New Orleans dish, traditionally prepared on Mondays when a long stove top simmer gave home cooks time to do laundry. Today, red bean lovers rely on Zatarain’s for classic flavor in a fraction of the time.

Enjoy Zatarain’s Reduced Sodium Red Beans & Rice with 25% less sodium than the original as a main course or side dish. Supplement with sausage, ham or pork chops, or hold the meat and have a tasty vegetarian meal. However you prepare it, Zatarain’s Reduced Sodium Red Beans & Rice is hearty but not heavy, packed full of flavor and an instant crowd-pleaser.

3. REMOVE from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with fork before serving.
