Today’s Menu: Shrimp, Scoops, Salsa, and Sour Cream

 

It’s been a rough few days around the house, My Dad’s Funeral was yesterday. There was quite a few more people than what we expected, we were very pleased for all the people that attended. A lot of old neighbors from the 2 different places we lived and old co-workers that worked with Dad and myself showed up. We had a small Wake for the family at our Church afterwards. Me and Mom are so sad and miss him so much but he was suffering so bad, and now he is at peace. Love you Dad!For Dinner tonight, more of an appetizer – Shrimp, Scoops, Salsa, and Sour Cream. Just not in the mood to put a lot of effort into cooking tonight.

 


I wanted something light and easy to prepare for Dinner tonight and it doesn’t get much easier than tonight’s Dinner of Shrimp, Scoops, Salsa, and Sour Cream. I used Meijer Cooked Shrimp, Tostitos Whole Grain Scoops, Newman’s Own Black Bean and Corn Salsa, Daisy Light Sour Cream, and a sprinkle of Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Cheese. I’ll have this for Lunch from time to time, so why not Dinner! I love using the Black Bean and Corn Salsa for dipping with the Cooked Shrimp, perfect together.

 

 


To assemble the Dish is easy. The Shrimp was frozen so I let the Shrimp thaw overnight in the fridge. You can use a bowl or plate for everything. Put down the Shrimp, a serving of the Scoops, 3 tablespoons of the Salsa, a tablespoon of the Sour Cream, and you can add a sprinkle of the Shredded 4 Cheese over the Scoops. Then dig in! Light and easy to prepare, and little clean up. This makes a great Light Meal!For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

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 and Ham , especially for Breakfast! Outside on the 2nd day of June its Partly Sunny and 84 degrees. Did a few things around the house then went outside and got the leaf blower out. Cleaned the deck and driveway areas off. After Lunch we went up and spent most of the afternoon with Dad. Dad is down to 120 lbs. now and he barely eats anything at all. He’s not doing good at all. For Dinner tonight it’s Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

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.

 


To go with the Shrimp I prepared some Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Cups. just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I baked a loaf of La Brea Bakery Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate

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

 

For Breakfast I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I wasn’t really hungry this morning and I had a doctor’s appointment with my Oncologist. I’ve been seeing one since 1998 when it was detected that I had Melanoma Cancer. Since that time i would have as many as 3 MRI scans but for the last 3 years only a yearly one. But the Oncologist told me today that I wouldn’t have to have anymore yearly scans! He told me that my blood work has come bcak so clean and none of of the MRI’S picked up anything that I would not need them anymore. Very happy over this! For Dinner tonight, always one of my favorite Meals – Leftovers! I heated up the Leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. Whenever I prepare this meal I make sure any leftovers never go to waste! I’ve left the original post below for the ingredients and directions. Have a good night all!

 


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. 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 reheated the leftover Garlic Bread Loaf.

They weren’t that painful but just annoying enough to keep waking me up. After I had my Tea I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Then later I drove Mom over to spend the afternoon with Dad. I didn’t stay long, too tired. I went back home and caught up on some sleep. Then later went back to pick her up. For Dinner tonight its Baked Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Whole Grain Mac and Cheese.

 

 


For the Shrimp I prepared a box of SeaPak Jumbo Shrimp. I preheated the oven on 425°f. I then got a small baking sheet, covered with aluminum foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I arranged the frozen shrimp in single layer on the baking sheet. Then baked at 425 degrees for 13-14 minutes turning over once after 6 minutes. They came out Golden Brown and delicious. Hard to beat these always great tasting. I served them with a side of Heinz Shrimp Cocktail Sauce.

 

 


While at Meijer the other day and picked up a 4 pack of the Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come 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! For Dessert/Snack later tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Freshwater Shrimp and Seasoned Grouper w/ Artisan Seasoned Petite Potatoes, Cut Italian Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We ended up with around 3″ of snow which should melt tomorrow, 49 degrees for a high. I wanted to prepare Dad a good meal tonight. Hospice is putting him in a rehab unit for 5 days to give us a bit of a break as it’s a full time job taking care of him. And we do need the reset. Me and Mom are just beat! We’ll be looking for full time placement in the upcoming days and weeks. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Freshwater Shrimp and Seasoned Grouper w/ Artisan Seasoned Petite Potatoes, Cut Italian Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

 


While at Kroger earlier I picked up some of the huge Freshwater Colossal Shrimp, I cleaned them and put them in the fridge until needed for Dinner tonight. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

 

 

 


Poured about 1/4 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.

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper that my friends bring me from Florida. They just dropped off a big bag of Fish caught in the Florida Gulf! I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I first rinsed it off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then cut the fillet into 3 pieces. Next 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 out the good ole Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. A perfect pairing for the Shrimp!

 

For one side I tried a new one, Private Selection Petite Potatoes Herbes De Provence in Artisan Seasoning Blend. I seen these at Kroger a couple of days ago, and being a Potato Lover I had to try them! They are similar to the Little Potato Co. Potatoes that I prepare. It comes in a microwavable tray. Just heat in microwave for 5 and 1/2 minutes. Next add a 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and then the Seasoning Packet. Stir and serve! They turned out piping hot and delicious, really like the Seasoning provided.

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. So to prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. Plus I love having Bread every meal and Crusty Bread with Pasta Dishes. For dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

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