Skinny Winter Veggie Pasta

This was a vegetarian dish an it was amazingly tasty and filling.  The combination of items for the recipe really went together so well.   I was a little worried about my husband liking it, as he is not always a fan of vegetarian but he does try to be open minded and usually is surprised that the meal is delicious without meat.   LOL   It was delicious!

Dry Rub Pork Loin Roast

This recipe is actually what I had made last night for dinner.  I just did not have a chance to post it last night.   This roast was amazing, the whole house smelled good and it was only 170 calories for 6 ounces.   Ted and I enjoyed this a lot and will try it again and maybe the rub mixture on some other kinds of meat as well.    Give this a try if you love lean cuts of pork, its delicious!

New Orleans Style BBQ Shrimp

What a delicious meal!   These shrimp were so tasty and actually something like we have never tried before. I served them with asparagus sautéed with smoked julienne cut dried tomatoes and a small baked potato.  It was very easy and took about 20  minutes to make from start to finish.  I am certain that this will be requested by the better half, again soon!
