Low Country Boil Foil Packets

Nothing screams Summer to me quite like a steaming pot of Low Country Boil. While the meal may have originated in Louisiana– it’s been embraced all over the South. You won’t have to look far to find a backyard with a picnic table lined with newspaper, a steaming pile of shrimp (or crawfish), Andoullie sausage liberally mixed with steamed corn on the cob and chunks of red potatoes spread out over top.

Tuna Melt Stuffed Tomatoes

Do you love a good tuna melt? Then these stuffed tomatoes are for you. Ripe, juicy hollowed out tomatoes are stuffed with hearty tuna salad before being topped with spiced Havarti cheese. Just like the iconic open faced sandwich these are baked in the oven– roasting the tomatoes and baking their flavor right into the tuna while melting the cheese to form a golden brown crust on top. Embrace one of the quintessential fruits of the Summer weather and grab a bunch of bright, fresh tomatoes on your next grocery run. You won’t regret forgoing the bread an opting for these Tuna Melt Stuffed Tomatoes instead.

Seafood Pot Pie

We’ve traded in our typical pot pie for an ultra creamy, extravagant version that still doesn’t break the grocery budget. Lump crab, cooked shrimp, creole seasoning, bacon– just to name a few of the flavors stuffed in this filling Seafood Pot Pie. Of course, it’s rounded out with a classic veggie medley of peas, carrots, and corn. It’s a savory meal tucked into every perfectly flaky crust-sandwiched juicy pot pie bite.

Salmon and broccoli are both super foods that energize the mind and body and provide them with key nutrients and minerals, essential for your health, which is one of the reasons we love pairing the two together. This meal does exactly that- combining good for you, oven-baked salmon fillets with a simple, homemade teriyaki marinade. This makes it perfect for anyone interested in controlling the ingredients going into their sauces, like lowering the sodium or using less sugar. A hint of spice from the sriracha cream drizzle offers a bright burst of bold flavor that pairs perfectly with the teriyaki sauce. Serve this classic fish over a bed of white rice with a generous side of steamed broccoli for a filling meal that’s low on calories but loaded with bold flavor and essential mind and body benefits.

Crispy Honey Shrimp with Candied Walnuts

This dish. The one that my husband calls, that one time, at that super nice Asian restaurant when I picked up my plate with every intention of licking it clean. Sluurrrrrp. No shame, none at all. Not an ounce. Well, just enough for me to regain my composure with my plate hovering in the air, mid-way to my mouth. #sorrynotsorry And you won’t be sorry either once you get a taste of this irresistible shrimp.

Garlic Shrimp Alfredo Pizza

Grocery shopping. I’m convinced you either love it or hate it. It’s either a necessary, but shoot-me-now chore, or you relish the hunt for the best bargains each week and sticking to your list and get off on coming in below budget. I’m one of those who falls firmly into the love it category. That being said, we make the big trek to Costco, followed by every store with a circular in a 5 mile radius, once a month and it takes pretty much all day. And that’s exhausting, considering kids are dragging there heels after store # 1, whining the whole way, and begging for this that and the other. We’re all tired and cranky by the end, and cooking dinner is the last thing I want to do at the end of that day.
