Today’s Menu: Stuffed Clams w/ Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese and Baked Whole Grain Bread

 

 
To start my day off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, stuffed-clams-w-whole-grain-mac-and-cheese-and-baked-whole-grain-004fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a temperature record-setting day here today! 76 degrees but windy and cloudy. So that’s 2 days in a row we’ve 70 degrees or better. But that ends by Saturday morning, only a high of 39 degrees but back in the 60’s by Monday. After Lunch went up and spent most of the afternoon with Dad at the rehab center. On the way back home stopped by Kroger for a couple of items for Mom. For Dinner tonight I prepared Stuffed Clams w/ Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese and Baked Whole Grain Bread.

 

Giant Garlic Shrimp, Stuffed Clams, and Baked Potato 003
For the Stuffed Clams; I purchased these at Seafood Department at Kroger. They are Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand) that they have in the Seafood Case. We have these every so often now,we love them! For my 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 and the Louisiana Remoulade Sauce is perfect to dip it in. Plus they are only $1 per Clam.

 

For side to go with the Clams I prepared some Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. I normally have the regularstuffed-clams-w-whole-grain-mac-and-cheese-and-baked-whole-grain-002 Mac and Cheese but I seen the 50% Whole Grain at Meijer and picked up a 4 pack of them. It comes in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! Seafood and Mac and Cheese are just a natural pairing. I also baked the other half of the LaBrea Whole Grain Loaf Bread. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams
Set Sail for Something Different for Dinner Tonight!seafood-fest-fried-freshwater-shrimp-stuffed-clams-and-cut-003
It’s the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner tonight?” Instead of reaching for another steak, pork chop, or that old standby, chicken nuggets for the kids, set sail for something different:
a bounty of delicious options from under the sea.

With families today looking for healthier and more flavorful meal options than ever before, seafood lovers young and old will enjoy discovering new items in the frozen seafood section that are convenient, affordable and tasty. That’s why, Matlaw’s, creator of America’s #1 Seafood Appetizer, has introduced a full line of products that the whole family will love.

From classic New England Style, Bacon and Cheese, Chorizo or Chili Lime Stuffed Clams served in a natural clam shell; to Crispy Original, Barbecue, or Coconut Popcorn Shrimp; and Southwest Tortilla Breaded Cod, Jalapeño Breaded Cod, or Pubstyle Battered Cod, these exciting new flavor combinations are sure to have family members asking for more every night of the week.

For many families the Stuffed Clams have become a favorite. Each natural clamshell is filled with a delectable matlawsbreadcrumb stuffing with clams, green and red peppers, and delicate spices, and individually frozen to insure freshness and flavor. They’re great on the grill and so easy to prepare. Instead of turning on the oven and heating up the kitchen, simply wrap in a foil “boat” and place right on the grill on medium heat for 25 minutes. Pair with a crunchy green salad and top with butter and lemon, (or a dash of hot sauce for the truly adventurous), is all it takes to satisfy the family.

Today’s Menu: Seafood Fest! – Fried Freshwater Shrimp, Baked Stuffed Clams, and Cut Green Beans w/ Potatoes

 

 

 

For Breakfast I had a Poached Egg served on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had that seafood-fest-fried-freshwater-shrimp-stuffed-clams-and-cut-005morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast Mom drove me over to pick my car up at the car shop. Dropped it off yesterday, had the oil changed, replaced the wipers, and such. After picking that up we stopped at Jungle Jim’s International Market. Love this store, you can spend all day in there, it’s that big! Bought a few things at the Deli, Bakery, Meat Dept., Produce, and the Seafood Shoppe. Back home, after Lunch I headed out to see dad for a while this afternoon at the rehab center. He wasn’t feeling too good today, upset stomach. Hope he comes around so he can return home soon. For Dinner tonight I made me and Mom a Seafood Fest! Tonight its Fried Freshwater Shrimp, Baked Stuffed Clams, and Cut Green Beans w/ Potatoes.

While at Kroger yesterday I picked up some of our favorite Shrimp, Freshwater Shrimp. My family absolutely love these Shrimp! I rinsed them off in cold water and removed the shells, they were already deveined. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

 

fried-shrimp-with-rotini-and-cheese-006

Poured about 1 inch of olive oil into large skillet. Heat 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 . The McCormick Cracker Meal Mix was excellent! Nice crunch and seasoning!

For the Stuffed Clams; I purchased these at Seafood Department at Kroger. They are Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand). We had these a while back and couldn’t wait to have them again! For my 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 and the Louisiana Remoulade Sauce is perfect to dip it in. Plus they are only $1 per Clam.

Then for a side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I really like using the Del Monte Cut Green Beans and New Potatoes, contains 2 of my favorite vegetables (Green Beans and Potatoes). I also baked a loaf of LaBrea Whole Grain Loaf. For dessert later a Weight watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

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

 

 

 
For Breakfast this morning I made a favorite, Skillet Potatoes and Ham. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes fried-shrimp-w-roasted-butternut-squash-and-purple-passion-aspar-007Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped everything with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar and a fried Sunny Side Up Egg. After Breakfast I had to get ready to go to the Funeral Home. A friend of mine I used to work with had passed away. Warm weather out there to be January. Raining but the low was only 54 degrees overnight and had a high in the low 60’s! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Shrimp w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Purple Passion Asparagus.

 

fried-shrimp-with-rotini-and-cheese-001
While at Kroger yesterday they were just bringing out more of the huge Freshwater Shrimp, and i just can’t pass those up! I rinsed them off in cold water and removed the shells, they were already deveined. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix, first time I tried this one.

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 . The McCormick Cracker Meal Mix was excellent! Nice crunch and seasoning!

 
Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! This fried-shrimp-w-baked-fingerling-potatoes-and-roasted-butternut-s-002has quickly become a family favorite. I purchased 2 small packages 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; 2 packages of Diced Butternut Squash, Crumbled Bacon Bits, 2 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

fried-shrimp-w-baked-fingerling-potatoes-and-roasted-butternut-s-001
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 season and sprinkle with the Crumbled Bacon. 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, Bacon and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash!

 

 

cumin-spiced-pork-chop-w-purple-passion-aspararagus-savory-herb-002
For a side dish I had picked up some more of the Purple Passion Asparagus at Meijer. Second time we’ve had this. It tastes like Green Asparagus but it’s less fibrous and sweeter due to a higher sugar content. I prepared it the same way as the Roasted Asparagus I’ve made before. I’ll need; 1 bunch of Purple Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

fried-shrimp-w-roasted-butternut-squash-and-purple-passion-aspar-002
To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the bacon, garlic salt, salt, pepper, and olive oil and toss to coat. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and that slight sweet taste to it. Really like this over the Green Asparagus! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Grilled Zucchini and Buffalo Cauliflower

 

 

 

For my Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and Scrambled 2 medium size seasoned-grouper-zucchini-buffalo-cauliflower-012Eggs. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another rainy but mild day out again. We had a high of 56 degrees, not too bad for early January weather! Rain on and off all day though. Cleaned the house today, vacuumed and dusted. Then after Lunch I installed a new set of speakers on my computer. Needed these for a long time, the old ones rarely worked. Then I installed a new Security and Virus Protection and then I added more RAM to my computer. Trying to get the computer in top shape. I did not like being not able to use it all weekend! So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Grilled Zucchini and Buffalo Cauliflower.

 

I love this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper! And my friends just brought me seasoned-gulf-coast-grouper-w-savory-herb-potatoes-and-cut-green-001a fresh batch of them. 6 big fillets of it. They were just caught this past weekend. So I had them in the freezer so I grabbed a fillet and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.

 

 

 

 

 

seasoned-gulf-coast-grouper-sandwich-w-baked-fingerling-potato-w-002

To prepare the fillet I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until it was well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillet, frying about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. Love Fish, Love Seafood!

 

 
Went shopping at Meijer yesterday and found 2 new items that I’m trying for Dinner tonight. One being Woodstock seasoned-grouper-zucchini-buffalo-cauliflower-004Organic Grilled Zucchini. I’ve only tried Zucchini once before and that was years ago. To prepare it; it comes frozen, first get a medium size skillet and spray it with Pam Cooing Spray and add a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heat on medium heat, when fully heated I added my Zucchini. Stir – fried it for about 5 minutes and done! Seasoned it with some Sea Salt and Ground Pepper and served. I came very tender and flavorful. Another good Vegetable side to have handy in the Freezer.

 

 
Then for the second new side I prepared a bag of Birdseye Buffalo Cauliflower. Another easy prepared frozen side seasoned-grouper-zucchini-buffalo-cauliflower-003dish! It comes in a steamable bag and to prepare it I microwaved it. Just layed the bag in the microwave and microwaved for 6 minutes. Remove from the microwave and let it cool for 1 minute and serve. These had a nice Buffalo heat and flavor! Another good item to have on hand. That’s why I like Meijer, not only lower prices but the a great selection of foods. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 
Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper, Baked Clam Strips, and Harvest Vegetables

 

 

 
For Breakfast on this second day of 2017 I’m having a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, topped withseasoned-gulf-coast-grouper-baked-clam-strips-and-harvest-vege-011 Smucker’s Sugar-free Blackberry Jam, and as every morning, a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast and the morning workout I headed off to Meijer. They had several sale items that we use so I went to cash in on them and I also needed to pick up a couple of packages of Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, I’m making some 3 Bean Turkey Chili sometime this week. Not a bad at all out here today, cloudy but 54 degrees! Back home I did some light cleaning around the house. For Dinner tonight its Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper, Baked Clam Strips, and Harvest Vegetables.

 

 
I love Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back up from Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Seaso 004Florida! I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. Love Fish, Love Seafood!

 

 

Clam Strips and Baked Fries 003
I used a box of SeaPak Clam Strips. Preheat the oven on 400 degrees. I then lined a baking sheet with foil and sprayed it with a shot of Pam Cooking Spray. Placed the Clam Strips in a single layer on the sheet and baked them for 12 minutes, flipping them over after 7 minutes. These come out so delicious. Love these, very meaty strips, well seasoned, and easy to prepare. Had a side of McCormick’s Tarter Sauce, for dipping.

 

 

 

seasoned-gulf-coast-grouper-baked-clam-strips-and-harvest-vege-005
Then for a side I prepared a package of Pict’sweet Harvest Vegetables with Roasted Red Potatoes and Herb and Garlic Seasoning. Another item that’s easy to prepare. Just microwave them in their steamable bag they come in on high for 5 minutes an d you have some steaming hot delicious vegetables. Pict’sweet has several different vegetable products but this is my favorite. It contains sugar snap peas, carrots and robust roasted red potatoes in a garlic seasoning.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Italian Herb Pasta

 

 

scrambled-eggs
Started my morning off by Scrambling 2 Eggs, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love a good Breakfast! Outside its in the 70’s, a bit more humid, with passing rain all day. Not much to do but do some cleaning the house.Everything done so I met a friend of mine that was in town over at a B-W 3’S and kicked back to watch an afternoon of some College Football. For Dinner tonight its Leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Italian Herb Pasta.

 

 

shrimp-w-pasta-roni-italian-herb-pasta-010
When I prepare a Pasta and Shrimp Dish and there are leftovers you almost always count on my Dinner the next day will be leftovers, like tonight! Just can’t let Pasta and any seafood go to waste. So there was plenty of leftovers left from last night’s Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Italian Herb Pasta. I have a microwave plate with warming lid, which I used to reheat everything. Both the Past and Shrimp were just as good the second time around! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar. I’ve left the original post from last night below, for cooking instructions and description, Enjoy!

 
For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw Shrimp, Tomato Pesto Sauce, Whole Grain Rotini, and Baked French 003overnight in the fridge. I love the Shrimp and 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 cooked the Shrimp. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

 

So tonight I’m using a box of Pasta Roni Rustic Recipes Olive Oil and Italian Herb.It comes with the Pasta (Linguine)shrimp-w-pasta-roni-italian-herb-pasta-008 and Olive Oil and Herb Seasoning. I added; 1 3/4 cups of water and 1Tbsp. of Light Olive Oil. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water and Olive Oil 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, 10-12 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 Olive Oil and Herb Seasoning are perfect with the Linguine. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. Just too good, this makes one delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish!

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Italian Herb Pasta

 

 

shrimp-w-pasta-roni-italian-herb-pasta-010
Started the morning off with Scrambled Eggs and Toast. Scrambled 2 medium size Eggs that I seasoned with Salt and Pepper. Then I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and made my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nice start to the day! Another day of showers on and off all day. High was around 68 degrees. Had to trim the vine again that lines the driveway. It grows so quickly, I have to trim it every 2-3 weeks. Took my Hoveround chair out and cleaned it up. Back inside did a few things around the house, and all caught up for the day. For Dinner tonight its Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Italian Herb Pasta.

 

Shrimp, Tomato Pesto Sauce, Whole Grain Rotini, and Baked French 003
For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love the Shrimp and 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 cooked the Shrimp. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 
So tonight I’m using a box of Pasta Roni Rustic Recipes Olive Oil and Italian Herb.It comes with the Pasta (Linguine)shrimp-w-pasta-roni-italian-herb-pasta-008 and Olive Oil and Herb Seasoning. I added; 1 3/4 cups of water and 1 Tbsp. of Light Olive Oil. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water and Olive Oil 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, 10-12 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 Olive Oil and Herb Seasoning are perfect with the Linguine. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. Just too good, this makes one delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! Also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered. For dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp w/ Noodles and Mushrooms

 

 

shrimp-w-noodles-and-mushrooms-009
I made a Breakfast Sandwich this morning to start the day off. I scrambled 1 medium size Egg, fried up 4 slices of Boar’s Head Deluxe Ham, 1 slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and served on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin.Back when I was able to work I would fix a Breakfast Sandwich every morning before work and wrap it in foil. Then eat on the way to work, used to love that! Outside it’s showers and in the low 80’s. Swept the driveway off and got the cart out and cleaned it up, much needed. Back inside it was computer cleaning day. Ran scans, reinstalled 2 programs, updated passwords, and then cleaned computer desk. So for Dinner tonight its Leftovers – Shrimp w/ Noodles and Mushrooms.

 

Far be it from me to let delicious leftovers go to waste! I really enjoyed last night’s Dinner. So much that I’m having the leftovers for my Dinner tonight! I’m just a huge fan of Shrimp and Pasta and with the added Mushrooms, I’m all over it! So for Dinner tonight its Leftovers – Shrimp w/ Noodles and Mushrooms. I’m leaving yesterday’s Dinner posting for the description and directions to make the dish, Enjoy!

 

 

shrimp-w-noodles-and-mushrooms-002
I came across a recipe from a site I follow, Food Mingle. The recipe was Egg Noodles and Mushrooms and it gave the idea for my Dinner tonight, thank you Food Mingle! So tonight I’m preparing Shrimp w/ Noodles with Mushrooms. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 – 1 lb. bag of Kroger Jumbo Shrimp, Old Bay Seasoning, 1/2 bag of Ronzini Smart Taste Extra Wide Noodle Style Pasta, sliced Baby Portabella Mushrooms, Parsley, and Sea Salt.

 

 

 

Shrimp, Tomato Pesto Sauce, Whole Grain Rotini, and Baked French 003
For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love the Shrimp and 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 cooked the Shrimp. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. So delicious and so easy to prepare! Removed them from the pan and placed them on a plate and set it aside.

 

shrimp-w-noodles-and-mushrooms-004
As the Shrimp was cooking in a small skillet I sauteed the sliced Mushrooms. Using Baby Bella Mushrooms, I sliced the Mushrooms. I seasoned them with Dried Thyme, Ground Smoked Cumin, Dried Parsley, and Sea Salt. Pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Removed from the heat and set aside.
 

 

 

Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots 010
Finally to prepare the Noodles I brought 2 qts. water to a rapid boil. To add flavor and reduce stickiness, add salt. Add the pasta and stir; return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain well and empty the Noodles into a large bowl. Toss in the sauteed Mushrooms. Add the Shrimp, add the parsley, and season with a little salt, to taste. I love the combo of Shrimp and Pasta and throw in the Mushrooms, it’s a winner! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
