NOW THAT SHRIMP IS SAFE TO EAT…   Leave a comment


Now that it has been decided that shellfish, though high in cholesterol is not bad for you because of not having any saturated or trans fat it is time for me to go back to eating it–like I ever stopped! (By the way keep in mind it is high in sodium!)

I don’t usually post recipes but this is so easy and s-o-o-o-o-o good! To think I use to take two days to make this recipe from scratch!

Actually I don’t know how or why but I had all the following ingredients so I decided to go the easy way and make shrimp and linguini in white clam sauce. I use to make it from scratch but with a crockpot this was simple.
Ingredients:
12 ounces of cooked shrimp peeled and deveined
10 ounces frozen mixed vegetables
16 ounce portion sized package of linguini
15 ounce can of white clam sauce
Parmesan cheese topping (Though some chefs would have a fit if you put cheese on shellfish I am not one of them!)

Cook linguini in crockpot and then drain. Add veggies and after 15 minutes add clam sauce. Last 5 minutes add shrimp.

I then divided it into 4 portions, only because of the sodium, which I put in the freezer. Normally I would just eat the whole at one sitting. When I am ready to eat I’ll make a salad with Romaine lettuce, green peppers, onion, tomato and an Italian dressing.

A portion: 656 calories 952 mg of sodium 165 mg cholesterol 32 grams protein 6 grams of fiber 2 grams of saturated fat 15 grams of fat

(Only thing missing is carrot cake for dessert!)

This past Christmas Mary (&ILCs) sent me a present of various pastas and 2 jars of sauce–she probably just fainted hearing I didn’t eat it all the day after I received it.

It is no secret that I LOVE food–I love cooking it, shopping for it and eating it! Having been a server I love to go out to restaurants to eat. I plan all and any events around food before during or after. Of all the foods I have there are only 2 I don’t like and they are oyster plant and tofu. Regarding the latter I spent a year preparing every which way and it always tasted like cardboard!

Yes I eat frozen Sara Lee cake and I don’t trust anyone who will let it defrost first. I have nothing good to say about frozen pizza but I eat it! I’ve heard rumors that people allow chocolate to melt in their mouth!! Only crazy people do that, right? I heard people wait for food to cool off before they eat it, is that true? OMG! There are even people who eat 1 M&M or 1 nut at a time! Who is responsible for teaching such ridiculous things?

I know some people (not mentioning names Allen) who won’t eat shrimp if they have their tails on–I’ll eat the tails! That same person won’t eat BBQ ribs because of the bones! And wings? Don’t even think of it!!!

Back in the days when I dated and/or fell in love it was usually with someone who didn’t clean their plate leaving food over—for me! If they said, “I can’t eat another thing,” I would suggest we get married!!! I have never been so full that I couldn’t eat another piece of carrot cake even if I just finished eating a whole cake. Yes I can eat a whole cake and, maybe, some ice cream with it.

Did I mention my weight problems? Let’s not go there–maybe some other time! Now back to my dinner before the pasta and coffee gets cold while the salad and smoothie gets warm.
