Today’s Menu: Sea Scallops w/ Pasta Roni – Butter and Garlic and Baked Italian Loaf Bread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. After Tea I went and picked up Breakfast at Wendy’s for Mom. Well Mom and her other friends from Church all went to Church today. First time she and her 3 friends have been since last November! They were so glad to go and to see each other again. That is the longest Mom and ever not been to Church in her life, and she really missed going. So I was very glad she’s going back finally. I spent most of the afternoon cleaning and trying to get my Covid Vaccine scheduled. Everything is booked solid right now. I’ll keep trying. For Dinner tonight I’m preparing Sea Scallops w/ Pasta Roni – Butter and Garlic and Baked Italian Loaf Bread.

First time using Sea Scallops with the Pasta Roni, I’ve always used Shrimp. So for the Scallops part of the dish I used Meijer Sea Scallops. I had purchased these last week. I already had washed them and had them in the freezer. I sat the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love Scallops and all Seafood. For the Scallops; 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, 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 1 pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned the Scallops with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Scallops to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Scallops once. And as the Scallops was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

I’m having the Pasta Roni – Butter and Garlic. As all the Pasta Roni’s, it’s Delicious! 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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Trop A Rocka Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Scallops………
Scallops are a great source of magnesium and potassium, which are both important for heart and brain health. They also promote blood vessel relaxation, help control blood pressure and enable better blood circulation.

Scallops are a naturally low carbohydrate food. A 100-gram serving of scallops provides just 137 calories and 6.3 grams of carbohydrates. Keep in mind, however, that serving size can vary. If scallops are added to a hearty rice dish with several different ingredients, for example, you’re likely to consume fewer of them.

The scallop size can also vary. According to government sources, an average serving size of scallops is about 3.5 ounces (100 grams), which can include 4 to 5 large scallops, 9 to 12 medium scallops or 15 to 20 small scallops.
