Menu Monday

Ugh, its Monday again and I already miss the weekend.  I miss being at home with my sweet, sassy, silly little girl.  But, its Monday no matter what I do, so let's get this week started by figuring out what we'll eat this week.

Grilled Shrimp & twice baked potatoes (purchased pre-made from our deli).  
Our grocery store was having a big sale on seafood yesterday, so I was able to get a pound of large, fresh gulf shrimp for only $5.99/lbs. So I grabbed some and stuck it on the menu.  Here is my recipe for grilled shrimp:
Peel and devein.  Melt about 2-3 TSBP of margarine or butter in a bowl.  Add in about 1 TSBP of Tony Chacheres Creole seasoning.  Put the shrimp into the butter & let sit for about 2-3 minutes (make sure they are all covered in the butter - add more melted butter if you need to).  Put them on skewers and grill on the lowest setting possible for about 4 minutes on each side.  Before serving, sprinkle with fresh lemon juice.  Super easy & super delicious!

Shredded chicken quesadilas. 

Breakfast for Dinner:  Ham, onion & cheese omelet. 

Hot Dogs (real healthy, I know but we need something quick before daddy's softball game).

Grilled salmon with greek seasoning and Cesar salad.

Again - super easy and super delicious.  My way - just generously sprinkle your salmon with greek seasoning.  Thinly slice a lemon and put on top of each salmon patty.  Light your grill and put on low heat. Put the salmon on the top shelf of the grill - so not on direct heat.  Close & let it cook for about 15 minutes or until nice & flaky.  Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice before serving.
