Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a 1/2 Cake Donut and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I took Mom over to the Gordon Food Service Store. They had some good buys going on. They had Prime Rib Roast on sale that we got. Mom wants to have it for New Years. Stopped and picked up Breakfast for her at Wendy’s. Back home I relaxed for a while, we had to be at a local Walgreens at 4:00. Me and Mom both got our Virus Booster Shot. Nothing else going on. For Dinner tonight I up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. I never let the Leftovers of Gumbo go to waste! Love that Gumbo! I’ve left the post from last night up for description and instructions. Take care and stay safe all!

 

Gumbo is always one of my favorite meals, the Rice, Spices, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage makes the perfect Gumbo! Plus the leftovers are just as good if not better! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo 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.

 

It’s very easy to prepare, it takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced 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 for 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 Rice, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too, I took a small bowl over to my neighbor also, she always enjoys that. Then for Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple.

Today’s Menu: Panko Breaded Shrimp w/ Baked Potato

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 47 degrees and sunny out today, very windy also. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry . I was caught up on everything else. I did some cleaning on the computer. Deleted a lot of things. Then cleaned the computer, long over due. For Dinner tonight I prepared Panko Breaded Shrimp w/ Baked Potato.

 

While at Meijer some time ago I came across a the Meijer Panko Breaded Shrimp, been using them ever since. They come in a bag frozen, about 16-20 Shrimp per bag. They come Breaded with the Panko and ready to bake! Just preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Next I got a baking sheet and lined it with foil, lightly sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Placed the Shrimp in a single layer and baked for 16 minutes, turning the Shrimp after 8 minutes.

 

Removed the Shrimp from the oven and placed them on a paper towel lined plate. They baked up perfect. They were Seasoned just right and the Panko Breading was Browned and Delicious. Just the right amount of Breading, the Shrimp was nice sized. Excellent Panko Breaded Shrimp, I’ll have a bag of this handy in the freezer. Served with a side of Shrimp Cocktail Sauce.

 

 

For a side I had Baked Potatoes. Topped them with Salt, Pepper, Butter, and Light Daisy Sour Cream. I also baked a loaf of the Garlic Bread. For Dessert a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meijer Panko Breaded Shrimp
Crispy, crunchy flavor meets shrimp with Meijer Breaded Panko Shrimp, a must-have for meals of any size. This ready-to-cook shrimp is hand-breaded, making each bite a wonderfully tasty experience. Be the hero of your get together and serve alongside your favorite cocktail sauce for your friends and family to enjoy.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I had to be at the Oncologist at 12:00 for my yearly check up. He said that everything looked great and the blood tests all came back clean. So another year Cancer Free! They fell behind at the Doctor’s Office and I was there for over 2 hours! Way too long for 20 minute examination. So many people with Cancer, It’s heartbreaking. Let’s just hope there is a cure all one day. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Frozen 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, leftovers coming tomorrow for Lunch. Nice seasoning, the Pasta is so tender, 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 easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Dirty Rice and Shrimp

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Shredded Hash Browns, love these they have some good spices. Then I also prepared 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. More rain outside! 56 degrees, cloudy, and passing showers for today. We need some dry weather!  Cleaned and straightened up the pantry and both freezers. That took almost the whole afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared Dirty Rice and Shrimp.

 

For the Shrimp I’m using a Kroger 10 oz. bag of Wild Caught Shrimp. It comes frozen and I had it in the freezer. I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Before adding the Shrimp to the Dirty Rice I washed the Shrimp off in cold water in a colander then sat it in the fridge until ready to use.

 

For the Rice, as always, I’m using a box of Zatarain’s Dirty Rice To prepare the Dirty Rice; Stirred in 2 1/2 cups of Water and the Rice Mix into the saucepan until it was well blended. Brought it to a boil. Reduced the heat to low and covered. Simmered for 25 minutes until the Rice was tender. With about 5 minutes of cooking time left I added the Shrimp. I stirred that in until it was well mixed and finished cooking time.

 

What a great looking Dish! The Dirty Rice cooked up perfect as all Zatarain’s Products. The Shrimp worked perfectly with the Dirty Rice and fantastic Cajun Seasoning. Enjoyed every bite of it! I have plenty of leftovers for either Lunch or Dinner tomorrow. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. Stay Safe everyone!

Today’s Menu: Fried Shrimp w/ Potato Pancakes and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees with rain showers this morning and heavier rains in the late afternoon. Moving slow today, my Sinuses are running wild. Had a headache all day. Should go away once the weather keeps going from hot to mild. Anyway for Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Shrimp w/ Potato Pancakes and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

 

While at Meijer last week I picked up some more of the Black Tiger Shrimp. A couple of weeks ago we had some and they were delicious! This batch looks just as good, there is some huge Shrimp in this batch! For the Breading I’m using Zatarain’s Fish Fri Crispy Southern Mix.

 

To prepare the Shrimp I rinsed them off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Cooking Olive Oil. Fried each side for about 2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for Seafood!

 

So for a side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). The whole family loves these Potato Pancakes! I served them with a side of Daisy Light Sour Cream. They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers, perfect for Breakfast.

 

I also baked a loaf of the New York Bakery Garlic Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.
