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

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees, very humid, with rain showers. I took a friend of mine out to Ross, Ohio to the Produce Markets. I bought some Peaches, Cantaloupe and Half Runner Green Beans. She picked up that and much more while out there. Back home I rested the rest of the afternoon. Allergies are killing me again. For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni from last night’s Dinner. I left the post from last night for directions and recipe ingredients.

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 a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

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

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 90 degrees with rain moving in later in the day. After Breakfast I got the cart and my yard tools out of the shed and got some yard work done. Took the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

Today’s Menu: Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I then headed to Meijer, I had to buy some more plastic tubs and boxes. I’ll need them for storage. I’m packing everything in boxes from the spare room and pantry. It’s easier to move everything and get it back in the room when the new flooring is in. Mostly sunny and 89 degrees out. I got the cart out of the shed along with leaf blower and rake and cleaned off deck and driveway. Then cleaned up around the flower beds. For Dinner tonight I prepared some Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

Had no clue on what to have for Dinner tonight. I did know I wanted a lighter Dinner and one easy to prepare. I explored the depths of the stand up freezer and found a bag of Frozen Kroger Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp, so it’s Shrimp tonight. Easy to prepare, I just preheated the oven to 450 degrees. Grabbed a large baking sheet, lined it with foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. When the oven was ready I baked the Shrimp for 12 minutes, turning them over after 6 minutes. Let cool for a couple of minutes and serve. These were fantastic, really nice size Shrimp and lightly breaded to give a nice crunch but not too much to make it mushy as some breading. Great product to have in the freezer. Served them with Heinz Seafood Cocktail Sauce and Louisiana Remoulade Sauce for dipping.

 

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac & Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Nice size, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Couldn’t get much easier of a Meal to prepare. I have to fast starting at 11:00, I have to be at the Doctor’s at 8:00.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 91 degrees, humid and partly cloudy outside. Did some yard work early before the humidity got bad. Then at 1:00 I had to take Mom over for some new hearing aids. From there we stopped by the Cemetery and put flowers on my Brother’s Grave. Back home swept up outside and the deck. For Dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Large 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.

 

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Red Beans and Rice w/ Cajun Shrimp and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 70 degrees and sunny out today, it’s beautiful! After my Tea I headed off to Kroger with Mom, she needed for few items and wanted to go in. Then I took her to Meijer, she wanted some books to read and to their Garden Center. Finally, we stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home I got the cart out and the yard tools and did some yard work out in this beautiful weather. For Dinner tonight Red Beans and Rice w/ Cajun Shrimp and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

For the Red Beans and Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice Mix. For the Shrimp I used the Meijer Frozen Jumbo Shrimp and for the Garlic Loaf I used a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread. This had the makings of a delicious Meal from the start! I got the bag of Shrimp out of the freezer last night and let it thaw overnight.

 

To prepare it I’ll need; the box of the Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice Mix, 3 cups Water, Extra Light Olive Oil, and the Shrimp. Mixed 3 cups of water, Rice Mix and 2 tbsp. of Light Olive Oil in 2-quart saucepan until it was well blended. Brought to a boil. Then reduced the heat to low and covered. I got the Shrimp out of the fridge and seasoned them with Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning.

 

Simmered for 25 minutes, until the rice was tender. Stirred occasionally to prevent the Rice and Beans from sticking. With 4 minutes of cooking time left I added the Shrimp. When done I removed the skillet from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. And done ready to serve! Like the Sausage and Dirty Rice I had last week, this is one fantastic Meal! The Red Beans and Rice is Seasoned perfect. It made plenty of both the Red Beans and the Rice. And the Shrimp worked perfect with it. Plenty of great leftovers!

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! I loved this dish tonight, plenty leftover for tomorrow’s Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp Jambalaya

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 59 degrees and sunny out today. After Breakfast I headed to Kroger and picked up a Prescription for Mom. Finished up some cleaning indoors. Got the cart out of the shed and rode around the yard and made a list of things I would need to fix up the yard. Then raked some leaves and limbs in the backyard. Then for Dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp Jambalaya.

 

For the Shrimp I used a bag of Kroger Frozen Wild Caught Shrimp. I grabbed a skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Olive Oil Cooking Oil, and a pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. I seasoned the Shrimp with a shake of Sea Salt and Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning. I heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet heated up I added the Shrimp. Cooked it a total of about 2 minutes and removed it from the heat. I put the semi cooked Shrimp into bowl and set aside until needed.

 

I used Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Jambalaya Mix (Mild) for my base for the Jambalaya.  I use Zatarain’s Products whenever I can, love the flavor and seasoning of all their products. To prepare it I just followed the easy instructions on the box. Mixed 2 1/2 cups of Water and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and brought it to a boil. Added the Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix Returned it to a boil, and then reduced the heat to low. Covered and simmered for about 25 minutes, adding the Shrimp with 2 minutes of cooking time left. Continued cooking till most of the moisture had been absorbed, 2 minutes. Removed it from the heat and let it rest for about 5 minutes before I served it.

 

The Shrimp and Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Jambalaya Mix make a perfect pairing! I added a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to the mix also, nothing like a little heat to liven things up! This makes one delicious dish. For Dessert later a bowl Breyer’s Chocolate Carb Smart Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, heated up a few slices of Boar’s Head Thick Cut Bacon, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 44 degrees and partly cloudy out. Not quite as nice as our 68 degrees yesterday! They delivered a new Hoveround Mobility Chair for me today. I still have my last one and it’s an excellent chair but under Medicare law they will not pay for repairs for a chair that’s 5 years old. Instead they buy a new one. It makes no sense to me, but who am I! I do appreciate it though but I would think it would save Medicare money to make repairs than buy a new one. The chair I had before that I got 10 years ago is still running! Oh well! For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. I left the original post from a night ago for ingredients and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

It’s Gumbo time! And Gumbo is always one of my favorite meals, 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.

Then for Dessert/Snack later I had a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
