Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Grits with Cheese and Bacon

 
It’s getting harder and harder to watch the news anymore, regarding the ever declining status and condition of our Country. But I’m not going to use this blog and get all political. Hot and a little humid today, high in the 80’s. I’m not real hungry and not real motivated today so I went with something real easy to prepare, Sea Pak Shrimp and Grits with Cheese and Bacon.

 
I came across this the other day at Walmart, It’s new from Sea Pak Seafoods. It looked and sounded good so I thought I would give it a SeaPak Shrimp and Grits 004try. Easily prepared, I just emptied the entire contents of bag into a 10″ skillet and arranged shrimp in a single layer. Added 1 cup of water to the skillet with shrimp and grits. Heated the skillet on high heat. When the sauce boils (about 5 minutes) turn down to low heat and cover. Continued cooking for an additional 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until shrimp was fully cooked and the water is absorbed by the grits. Removed from heat and let stand 2 minutes. You can make the grits creamier by adding 1-2 tablespoons of additional water and cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Quick way to have some Shrimp and Grits! Everything was nicely seasoned and really loved the grits! Wish the Shrimp was a tad larger but overall really enjoyed it. It was 250 calories and 32 carbs for a serving and there’s two servings per box. I’ll keep a box or two in the freezer.

 
For a side or appetizer I had the Dill Pickled Carrots i had made the other day. They turned out delicious! The Dill and Brine just loaded the Carrots with flavor. Very good recipe, a keeper! For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla ice Cream topped with some Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Slices.
