Pictured is the remaining white rice from Angel Food. I had 2, gallon sized jars of white rice when I moved in here. We made a concerted effort to use it up. Now I turn to basmati, jasmine, brown rice plus the lone rice mix lurking in the pantry cabinet. For supper on Monday, I used the rest of the white rice, blending it with Basmati rice to equal 1 cup's worth prior to cooking.
Monday's fish dinner was supposed to be baked salmon fillets, but I only had 3 fzn ones on hand, and with 4 for dinner, that wouldn't do, so plan B: Bumble Bee lemon shrimp with garlic and herbs. Each pouch serves 2.
plus 4 blobs of seasoned, butter. Directions seemed odd: saute the still frozen shrimp in a skillet (nothing added to it, no water/oil) for 4 minutes. Still left with a frozen mess, I cooked them until barely pink. Then add the butter pats and still until melted and shrimp is evenly coated.
Very good, this was a phenomenal store sale plus coupon deal that I may never see again. (http://ctonabudget.blogspot.com/2013/10/stop-and-shop-deals-today.html) The shrimp "kits" cost me $11 out the door total or $2.75/person. Compared to a restaurant dish? this certainly comes out way ahead!
If looking for something quick and easy for a special occassion, this would certainly fit the bill.
