Well, it looks like meal planning is the most asked for feature so that’s the direction I will take. I am working on some meal planning tips, how I meal plan, etc., so look for those in the near future. I will try to incorporate some of the other things asked for as well.
I also thought that I would start posting about making everyday foods like bagels, tortillas, pitas, and my success or failure at it. I am also trying to go more towards fresh foods but there are some things that I’ll never stop using so I am going to try to find healthier alternatives. I hope you all will stick with me!
Any other ideas, please shoot them my way!
We had a BBQ for DH’s co-workers and some family friends a couple of weekends ago and one of the salads I made was this very delicious seafood salad. Deely from Food.com (formerly Recipezaar) suggested it to me and it was a HUGE hit at the BBQ. I took her advice and used fresh shrimp and crab and I would suggest that you do the same. It’s a very easy salad to make and I know that I’ll be making it over and over.
Deely’s Shrimp and Crab Pasta Salad
2 (6 ounce) cans shrimp (drained) or 1 cup fresh shrimp, chopped (I used medium size)
1 (6 ounce) cans crab (drained) or 1 cup fresh crab, picked through
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 (8 ounce) cans sliced water chestnuts (drained)
3 cups pasta shells uncooked (cooked)
1/2 cup onions chopped
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
salt and pepper
Mix seafood and lemon juice and then combine all ingredients.
Refrigerate over night.
Makes 8-10 servings.
