Healthy Meal Planning with Garlic Shrimp and Fresh Corn on the Cob

My soon-to-be-kindergartener has been asking for shrimp lately like it’s cotton candy or something. I made it a few weeks ago but apparently she did not approved of the breadcrumb coating I put on them before I fried them because it was peeled off. This time I decided to try it without the breadcrumb coating and do a more “natural” style cooking the shrimp in a buttery garlic sauce. Can’t go wrong with that, can I? Come on, people, we are dealing with a 5 year old! I was informed today, after serving a gorgeous-looking dinner, that all she wanted was boiled shrimp and tartar sauce. Oh. Next time I sit down to do some healthy meal planning I will try to remember that for one day of the week I can get away with a healthy and easy meal that is also deemed delicious by my preschooler.

meal one

Garlic Shrimp with Fresh Corn on the Cob
Serves 4

Ingredients
1 lb large shrimp, uncooked
5 tbsp butter
4-5 garlic cloves
salt, to taste
2-3 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh parsley

Directions
Melt butter over medium heat, then add shrimp and garlic. Cook shrimp about 5 minutes until pink. Then add lemon juice, salt and parsley and toss. Serve with fresh corn on the cob and bread, for the sauce.

meal two

Brown Rice and Black Bean Burgers
A new version of my favorite black beans and rice, this time as a burger! Yum. I love it when foods are made to be eaten with your hands.

meal three

Crockpot Chicken Salsa
Recently I have started to cook chicken for my Mexican meals right in the sauce. I have never tried it this way in the crockpot but so awesome I don’t have to keep an eye on it for hours!

meal four

Crockpot Beef and Broccoli
Husband is always asking me to make more meat. I am pretty resistant, probably due to growing up the daughter of a butcher, but this meal is impossible to refuse.

meal five

Ground Turkey Taco Skillet
I make this meal almost weekly because it’s healthy, quick and hardly any cleanup. It’s a great meal for spring and summer weeknight meals in between the daytime rush and nighttime outdoor activities.
