Deliciousness On My Table

It's funny that, when this evening started, I had no idea what to make for dinner.  But we just ate some sheer deliciousness... Completely... D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S.  It took me about 25 minutes to prepare and, although it wasn't all homemade (the rice was ricearoni and the veggies were green giant), the meal (with wine!) weighed in at 600 calories and was pretty darn worth it...  

So... What did we have?  

RiceARoni Nature's Way Parmesan & Romano Cheese (made with 1tsp olive oil (instead of 1tbsp) and 1/2c of unsweetened almond milk (instead of whole milk))
Green Giant Broccoli & Carrots lightly seasoned with garlic & herbs (dry fried on the stovetop since we dont have- nor want- a microwave)
Buffalo Sirloin Steak (broiled and, if you like, served with A1; made medium-rare)
Spicy Garlic Shrimp (this one will be making it to the food blog for a Tasty Tuesday in April, but it is below for your convenience!)  

Really... So freaking good.  If you want it without the wine (I had about 2oz) that knocks your calories to 550c for a filling, nutritious meal!  Enjoy!!

Spicy Garlic Shrimp 
(this recipe will serve as a main dish; make less, as I did, if you want it as a secondary entree)

12 jumbo shrimp (raw, deveined, and peeled)
2tbsp olive oil
1 heaping tbsp minced garlic
1/2tsp red pepper flakes
2tsp garlic & herb seasoning (McCormick)
1tbsp lemon juice
1tbsp chopped parsley
Over medium-high heat, heat the oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, and shrimp until the shrimp begin to pink.  Sprinkle over the seasoning (and pepper, if you'd like).  Stir constantly and coat the shrimp well.  Sprinkle over the lemon juice and continue to cook until the shrimp is done.  (The entire meal takes about 4 minutes to prepare.)  Calories: 285/svg (150g)  (makes 2 svgs)
