Spinach Rice and Shrimp Scallops Salad

shrimp scallops rice salad

An awesome meal doesn’t have to be a full recipe you have to make every time. This meal I just throw together. We keep individual portioned bags of shrimp and scallops in the freezer, and this week we happened to have made up a batch of rice to last for a few days, and we always have spinach on hand.

Boil 2 cups of water and then add your sphrimp and scallops about 1/2 a serving of each, boil for 7 minutes, then drain water. Heat up and your rice, then plate over spinach.  Add butter and spices of your choice. I always use something spicy like “Slap Yo Momma” Cajun seasoning.

Cucumber Turkey Sandwich

Sometimes you just want a frickin sandwich. For the most part I don’t crave bread anymore, but when I’m looking in the fridge trying to figure out what to have for lunch, the idea of layering things in a sandwich is still very appealing, practical and immensely enjoyable. I especially find it challenging to come…
