One of the girls on my local RI Nest board made this a few weeks back - and it had me drooling at work it sounded so good. So I planned the same meal for the next week for the hubs and I.
Absolutely delicious - I don't know what else I can say about it other than hurry and make this whole meal - you won't regret it!
The Bacon Wrapped BBQ Shrimp you want to make sure you cut the bacon while it's raw to wrap around the shrimp - depending on the size of your shrimp you may need to cut your strip in to half or even thirds. And do pre-cook the bacon a bit - even the microwave is fine! Any bbq sauce will work just fine, but I used Tastefully Simple's Bacon BBQ that was out this past summer and it just added to the bacon, smokey goodness of the meal.
The Creamed Spinach - I ended up using 1 1/2 large bags of baby spinach leaves, since otherwise it was a little too creamy for us. And I did use light cream instead of heavy and it was just fine! So that's a nice way to cut calories.
The rice is a great side dish with it because you can enjoy the leftover creamed spinach sauce with the rice!
This whole meal is perfect, you won't regret it - but don't waste a night of calorie counting on this one - just indulge and enjoy!
