Baked Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Whole Grain Mac and Cheese

Dinner Tonight: Baked Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Whole Grain Mac and Cheese

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a al fresco Chicken Breakfast Sausage Patty, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Same weather outside as yesterday except its a bit hotter and more humid. Our heat index is over 100. Not a good day to be doing a whole lot outside. After Lunch I headed up to the hospital and spent the afternoon with Dad. He's doing good, they just have to clear the pneumonia up in his right lung. Stopped and got gas on the way home and that was about it for the day. For Dinner tonight its Baked Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Whole Grain Mac and Cheese.

It's so hot out I wanted something sort of light and easy to preapre. So I baked 1 item and
microwaved the other one, don't get much easier! So I prepared a box of SeaPak Jumbo Shrimp. I preheated the oven on 425°f. I then got a small baking sheet, covered with aluminum foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I arranged the frozen shrimp in single layer on the baking sheet. Then baked at 425 degrees for 13-14 minutes turning over once after 6 minutes. They came out Golden Brown and delicious. Hard to beat these always great tasting. I served them with a side of Heinz Shrimp Cocktail Sauce.

 For a side I prepared some Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. I normally have the regular
Mac and Cheese but I seen the 50% Whole Grain at Meijer and picked up a 4 pack of them. It comes in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! For Dessert/Snack later tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop - Pop Corn along with a Coke Zero to drink.
