Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast on this Saturday Morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 72 degrees and mostly sunny, and no rain! After Breakfast I grabbed my mask and gloves and went to the local Kroger for a few items. They seem to be better stocked, that’s a good thing. Did some yard work, just enjoying the beautiful day out there! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

I love Gumbo and Cajun Cuisine, looking forward to this meal tonight! So for Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo. Using the Zatrain’s Gumbo Mix, Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage, and a bag of Meijer Frozen Shrimp (Large Size). Add all together and I’ve one Delicious Meal coming!

 

 

 

To prepare it I got a large saucepan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Then added 6 cups of Water, bite sized sliced 1 1/2 Sausages of the Butterball Smoked Turkey Sausage, and the Gumbo Mix. Mixed until well blended together. I brought it to a boil; covered and simmered for 25 minutes.

 

 

 

Next as the Gumbo was cooking I got the Shrimp out of the fridge washed then and let then drain in a colander. Then with 15 minutes of cooking time left I added the Shrimp to the Gumbo, stirring again until well mixed. Continued for 15 minutes. Removed the pot from the heat and let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.

 

 

 

 

This made one excellent Gumbo Dish! The Mix itself was flavored perfect, spicy but not over powering. Then with the added Sausage and Shrimp, it just capped everything off! I added a few shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to the Dish also. Lots of delicious leftovers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread for Gumbo. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

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

 

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Light Rain and 48 degrees out today. Caught up on most everything, so not much to do. So I cleaned the Microwave, scrubbed all the Kitchen Counters, and straightened up the Pantry. That was it for the day. Well things are finally going to start opening up. Doctors Offices reopened Thursday. Churches, Retail Stores, Barbershops, and Beauty Salons are open next week. Hope all goes well and this virus goes away! 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. 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 easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Smart Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

I also had a cup of my favorite Tea, Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. More rain today and every day until next Monday. So rain today and a high of 54 degrees. Well its week 2 of isolation. The Governor of Ohio has shutdown everything but Hospitals, Doctor’s Offices, Grocery Stores, essential Repair shops, and Drive Thru or Curb Side Restaurants. My cousin has been bringing us food and such when she ventures out. Also I’ve been ordering what food and needs on line but its tough finding it anymore. Most Stores are out of a lot of items but its starting to better. So wait is what we’ll do until the virus passes or a cure comes along. I hope all of you stay healthy! For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

Thank goodness for our 2 freezers! We have a good supply of items in the freezer. So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Frozen Jumbo Shrimp.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse 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. Topped it off with some Sargento Off the Block Cheddar Cheese and also made that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 37 degrees and sunny out today, good to see the sun again! Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house, dusted and ran the vacuum. For Dinner tonight I prepared Panko Breaded Shrimp w/ Baked Potato.

I had bought a bag of Meijer Panko Breaded Shrimp and had them in the freezer. These were leftover from the last time I had them. They come 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 to pick up another bag of these next week whem I’m at Meijer. Served them 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 our favorite Bread, La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert/ Snack later a bowl of Smart Pop – Pop Corn and a Sprite Zero to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast I made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Snow flurries this morning but turned to rain later, a high of 39 degrees. After my Tea I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Caught up on everything today so I relaxed and caught up on some reading and some shows I have recorded. For Dinner tonight I reheat the Leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. I’ve left the original post from last night for item description and recipe directions.

 

 

 

 

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. 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 easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

After my Tea I headed out and picked up a couple of friends of mine and dropped them off at the airport, Florida Bound! Wish I was going too!
