Today’s Menu: Breaded Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast Light

 

 

To start this Sunday Morning off I prepared a couple of Scrambled Eggs that I topped with Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce and a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it started off cloudy and 19 degrees. Then 38 degrees and mostly sunny for the afternoon. I made Mom Breakfast also and then she went on to Church. I did a load of laundry and then I was all caught up on everything else for the day. Spent the entire day relaxing and watching some NFL Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared Breaded Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast Light.

 

 

 

 

While at Jungle Jim’s International Market earlier in the week I picked up a couple of boxes of Sebastian Breaded Oysters. I had never tried them but they had them on sale and it had good reviews online. So I prepared one of the boxes for Dinner tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

They come frozen and as Instructions said to keep them frozen until ready to use. I grabbed a skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Heated the skillet on medium heat and added 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. When heated I added the Frozen Oysters to the skillet. Fried them for 3 1/2 minutes until they turned golden brown. Then put them on a paper towel lined plate.

 

 

 

 

 

The Oysters came out great. Just enough Breading and they were delicious, had an excellent fresh taste to them. Served them with a side of Heinz Cocktail Sauce for dipping.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the Oysters were cooking I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Surf and Turf – Shrimp (Surf) and 5 oz. and Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (Turf)

 

 

To start my Saturday morning off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and topped them with a little Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce and a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain and thunderstorms and 58 degrees outside today, warmer but wetter. Did some inside chores inside today. I had ordered new brushes for the sweeper and I put those on and I also new tires for my Hoveround and I put the new tires on. Later on watched some College Football. For Dinner tonight its Surf and Turf. I prepared Shrimp (Surf) and 5 oz. Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (Turf) along with a small Baked Potato.

 

 

 

 

While at Kroger yesterday I picked up some of the huge Freshwater Colossal Shrimp, I cleaned them and put them in the fridge until needed for Dinner tonight. I love these, they are so meaty. They don’t have that Ocean taste like Ocean Shrimp but they’re not bad. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

 

 

 

 

Added about 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil into large skillet. Heated the oil on medium heat. I then took a 1/2 cup of the Cracker Meal Mix in a Hefty Zip Lock Plastic Bag. Take the peeled shrimp, 3 at a time and place them in the bag and shake until Shrimp had a nice coating on them. Had all the Shrimp coated I then began to fry them. Frying them about 3 minutes the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in the hot oil until light golden brown turning after 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towel lined plate. Love using the McCormick Cracker Meal Mix, nice light crust and seasoning.

 

 

 

 

 

For the Turf part I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 4 1/2 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had.

 

 

 

 

 

I also had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for a Surf and Turf Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Surf and Turf – Stuffed Clams, 5 oz. Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (Turf), and Baked Potato

 

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A big change in our weather. We’ve been in the 80’s and 90’s the past week or so. It was 40 degrees this morning and a high of 60 for the day. Big change! Had a lot of leaves all over the place!. Got the cart out of the shed along the rake and leaf blower. I was on yard duty most of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Surf and Turf – Stuffed Clams, 5 oz. Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (Turf), and Baked Potato.

 

 


I purchased The Stuffed Clams from the Seafood Department at Kroger. They are Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand) that they carry in the Seafood Case. We have these every so often and love having them! For the Stuffed Clams I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Lined a small baking sheet with foil and placed the Clams on it. I sprinkled some Sea Salt on them and a drizzle of Lemon Juice. When the oven was ready I baked the Clams until heated through, about 25 minutes. Meaty and seasoned just right, with a side of Louisiana Remoulade Sauce. It’s the perfect dip for all Seafood.

 

For the Turf part I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 4 1/2 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had.

 

 

I also had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for a Surf and Turf Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs and Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I just made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 84 degrees out today, also more humid. After my Tea I headed out to do some grocery shopping at Meijer. Also stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. I didn’t do a whole lot today I’ve been having some back problems. So with not much to do I got some rest with a heating pad this afternoon. For Dinner tonight Leftovers – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. I’ve left the original post from yesterday for the dish preparation and description.

 

 

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. This is my frozen Shrimp of choice, best I’ve found. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. Love this Bread! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus

 

 

To start the day off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. I love combinations of Potatoes, Ham, and Egg! Heavy rains this morning and cloudy all day out today. So I cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the sweeper. Scrubbed all the Kitchen Counters and cleaned out the Fridge. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus.

 


We’re having Shrimp tonight, we could eat Shrimp and Seafood every day! While at Kroger yesterday I picked up some of the huge Freshwater Colossal Shrimp, I cleaned them and put them in the fridge until needed for Dinner tonight. I love these, they are so meaty. They don’t have that Ocean taste like Ocean Shrimp but they’re not bad. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

 

 


Poured about 1 inch of Extra Light Olive Oil into large skillet. Heated the oil to 350°F on medium heat. I then took a 1/2 cup of the Cracker Meal Mix in a Hefty Zip Lock Plastic Bag. Take the peeled shrimp, 3 at a time and place them in the bag and shake until Shrimp had a nice coating on them. Had all the Shrimp coated I then began to fry them. Frying them about 3 minutes the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in the hot oil until light golden brown turning after 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towel lined plate . Love using the McCormick Cracker Meal Mix, nice light crust and seasoning.

 


For a side dish I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, 1 tablespoon Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

 

 

For another side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

McCormick Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix

Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix adds extra crunchiness to fried and baked foods. All ingredients have been specially selected to provide a superior coating that seals in natural juices for fish, seafood, poultry, meats and vegetables.

Ingredients
Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, And Folic Acid), Whey (Milk), Dextrose, And Soybean Oil.

Serving size
1/4 cup Mix (32g)
All You Need
1/2 cup Cracker Meal
1 lb. Fish or Seafood*
Water or Milk
Vegetable Oil
Directions
1. POUR Cracker Meal into shallow dish or large plastic bag. Moisten fish, cut into serving-size pieces, or seafood with water or milk. Shake off excess.
2. COAT fish, several pieces at a time, evenly with Cracker Meal. Let stand 5 minutes. Discard any remaining Cracker Meal. Fry as directed below. Serve with McCormick® Cocktail Sauce or Tartar Sauce. Use the entire package to coat 4 lbs. fish or seafood.

*Best with tilapia, trout, catfish, shrimp, or scallops. Also try with shucked oysters and clams, or soft-shell crabs (pierce several times before coating).

Pan Fry: Pour oil to a depth of 1/4 inch in a large skillet; heat to 350°F on medium heat. Fry fish, in batches, 2 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain on paper towels.

Flavorful Tips:
• For a thicker coating, dip fish in a mixture of 3 tbsp. milk and 2 beaten eggs before coating with Cracker Meal.
• Coat boneless skinless chicken breast halves or chicken parts as directed. Bake in 400ºF oven 20 to 30 minutes for chicken breast halves or 45 to 50 minutes for chicken parts.
• Use Cracker Meal instead of bread crumbs when making meat loaf or meat balls.

Toady’s Menu: Shrimp, Noodles with Mushrooms and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Thomas 100 Calorie Light Whole Grain English Muffin, heated up an al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty, 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar, and I had my Breakfast Sandwich! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Passing thunderstorms, humid, and 88 degrees out today. Another day of being down and out with my allergies. Not feeling good today. So it was a day of rest and relaxation, and College Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp, Noodles with Mushrooms and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. I’ve been using the Meijer Frozen Shrimp for a while now. I think it’s the best Frozen Shrimp you can find. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

I’m preparing Egg Noodles with Mushrooms. I’ll be using Ronzoni Smart Taste Extra Wide Noodles, Mini Bella Mushrooms, Minced Garlic, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, Sea Salt, and Fresh Basil. To prepare it; Cook noodles until just tender in boiling salted water. Cook 8 minutes, stirring often.

 

 

 

 

As the Noodles are cooking I Sauteed the sliced Mushrooms and Garlic in 2 tablespoons of Butter, Ground Roasted Cumin, and Sea Salt over moderate heat until Mushrooms are tender, about 3 or 4 minutes. Keep an eye on the Garlic so not to burn it. Drain the Noodles and toss in with cooked Mushrooms. Add the Basil and season with a little Sea Salt, to taste. The Noodles, Mushrooms, and Garlic all come together to make one delicious Pasta Dish! To top it off top with the Shrimp, Shrimp makes everything better! Time to dig in!

 

 

 


As everything was cooking I also Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers: Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas 100 Calorie Light Multi Grain English Muffin and made a Breakfast Sandwich. I also lightly fried an al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We actually have had a few peeks of the sun today! But still rain on and off and very humid, 87 degrees. Ran the sweeper and dusted. Then did a load of laundry. After Lunch I made some Turkey and Black Bean Burritos and froze them. I used the leftover Turkey and Black Bean Taco Mixture to make the Burritos. Wrapped each one in foil and froze them in a Hefty Zip Lock Bag. They’ll be great to grab one out of freezer and have it for Lunch. For Dinner tonight its Leftovers. I had the Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread leftover from last night. I’ve left the post from last night for directions and details. Have a good one!

 

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

To prepare the Buitoni Fettuccine; I filled a large Sauce Pan with 4 quarts Water and a couple of shakes of Morton’s Light Salt. Turned it on high heat. When it was a full boil I added the Fettuccine. Reduced the heat for a gentle boil of the Pasta for 2 minutes, stirred frequently. Removed from the heat and drained the water. Seasoned the Pasta with Extra Light Olive Oil, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, Morton’s Light Salt, and Dried Oregano.

 

 

 

To serve, in a bowl, I made a bed of the Fettuccine and topped it with the Shrimp. I love Shrimp and Pasta! The Fettuccine was tender and so delicious. Then with the added Shrimp it just made that much better! I topped it with some Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up some of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread I had yesterday for Dinner. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

We have a lot of local flooding through out our area, hope it eases up soon. I had to be back at the Doctor’s Office for a follow up check on my leg, which seems to be better but slow healing. They said everything looked better though. Not much to do outside with all the rain so I did a few chores around the house the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

To serve, in a bowl, I made a bed of the Fettuccine and topped it with the Shrimp. I love Shrimp and Pasta! The Fettuccine was tender and so delicious. Then with the added Shrimp it just made that much better! I topped it with some Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up some of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread I had yesterday for Dinner. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Crunchy Pop Corn Shrimp and Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

Another long night dealing with the painful Phantom Pains. Very little sleep last night. These having been occurring too often lately to me! I keep a journal of habits and everything I eat, and activities to see if there is something that triggers the Phantom Pains. But there is just nothing there. They come and go as they please. Not much I can do except to go on. Anyway just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Most of the day I just rested and caught up on sleep after the Phantom Pains quit around 11:00 this morning. Not much of an appetite tonight, I wanted a light Dinner. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Crunchy Pop Corn Shrimp and Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

Being very tired I wanted a hot meal but something easy to prepare. I had a box of Kroger Wild Caught Crunchy Pop Corn Shrimp in the freezer. Shrimp sounded good so that’s what I’m having tonight. Very easy to prepare and a hot meal.

 

 

 

 

 

I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Next I got a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. I gave it a light spray of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and lined the Shrimp up on the sheet. I gave the top of the Shrimp a light spray of Pam also. I’m baking them 11 minutes, flipping them over after 5 minutes to finish baking. Very tasty Shrimp, I’ve these for Lunch a few times, really enjoy them. Makes a good meal when you don’t have a big appetite. Served it with a side of Heinz Cocktail Sauce.

 

 

 

I also Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Peach Diet Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Shrimp – They provide key nutrients. Aside from protein, shrimp provide a pretty impressive array of nutrients. Four ounces steamed contains over 100% of the Daily Value for selenium, over 75% for vitamin B12, over 50% for phosphorous, and over 30% for choline, copper, and iodine.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin, lightly fried 4 slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, and had a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. Put it all together for a Breakfast Sandwich. Off and on showers and thunderstorms, high of 81 degrees. Cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuumed. For my Dinner tonight Leftovers! Tonight its Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo.


I never let these leftovers go to waste, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo leftovers! So for Dinner tonight I reheated the leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. I had froze them from the other night so I sat the container in the fridge overnight to thaw. The dish reheats perfectly! It’s just as good the second time around, if not better! I also reheated a couple of slices of Garlic Loaf Bread that was leftover also. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. I have left the original post from the other day that has the ingredients and instructions for the Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. Enjoy!

 

One of my favorite meals tonight, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I precooked the Sausage and Shrimp, according to the package instructions, before adding it to the Gumbo.

 

 

 

The Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix uses Pasta instead of Rice. It’s very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced the Turkey Sausage to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and continued to cook for 10-15 minutes. Then I added the Shrimp and simmered another 2-3 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turns out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Pasta, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. I also heated up some of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread I had yesterday for Dinner.
