Bacon Wrapped…

Everything is better with bacon, right? Shrimp. Basically, shrimp with a 1/4 cut piece of bacon, wrapped and secured with a toothpick.And smoked oysters (drained), wrapped with a 1/4 cut piece of bacon, secured with a toothpick.Place on separate pans of baking sheets, covered with aluminum foil.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes (shrimp might not take as long) or until done. 

So good…you can serve these as is, with your favorite sauce, really doesn’t matter, because…bacon. Ha.

Enjoy.

Parmesan Crisps

David and love crunchy snacks, but since my surgery, I need to have snacks that have substance.  Protein is key, and we have loved Cheese Whisps but those are costly and don’t last very long.

I decided to try my hand at making these fresh at home (again).  I microplaned the parmesan cheese (grocery store brand – nothing expensive) instead of grating it as it made it a fluffy shred.Placed the cheese into two strips on my cookie sheet (with either parchment or silpat).  Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 or until golden and bubbly.Let cool, and break or cut into chunks.A little bit of work for a lot of yummy pay off.  Super crispy and great flavor.  And the bonus is that I know it is all cheese – nothing added.

Blessings.

Broccoli

These were being offered as samples yesterday when I went to Sam’s Club. I liked them. Crispy broccoli is the bomb!!  Nutty, crunchy, tastes like roasted broccoli.

David isn’t a fan, but I love them.  And, they have 6 grams of protein! Hello!! (my opinion only, not a paid endorsement!!)

Blessings.

S’more’s Day

I really have never been a big fan of smores.  Too messy, have to build a fire.   And today is National Smore’s Day…and I don’t want to build a fire…

Love this yogurt! This flavor has become my favorite. 

Blessings.

Whisps

Parmesan Cheese Crisps…have become my go to snack.  They are bitter, salty, with a super amount of crunch.  9 grams of protein for 15 chips! Hello!

Love them with my glass of Chardonnay, or any other drink for that matter.

I need to try the cheddar ones, but for now these will do. 

Blessings!
