Shrimp, Scoops, Salsa, and Sour Cream

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.
