Summer, summertime. Whenever I see or hear the word “summertime”, I automatically start singing the song “Summertime in the City”. The next thing that comes to mind is stress over the lack of hours in a day to get everything done. Trying to balance working at home with a child off from school is ripe for a full guilt trip every single day. I either feel guilty that I am working and not spending enough time with her, or guilty that I am spending time with her and not getting work done. It also means I need to have extra quick and easy recipes for dinner. Even spending 30 minutes in the summertime on cooking dinner is a stretch. So I’ve got to have short-cuts, but the food still has to be fantastically delicious.

Normally when I am craving Lo Mein, I need a lot of time to cut all the vegetables. I am a ninja with the knife, but it still takes a while to cut them all. Then I need all the ingredients for the sauce. Lo Mein has quite a bit of ingredients in it. This time I used SeaPak Shrimp & Veggie Grillers that you can find in the frozen foods section of Food Lion. What a time saver. It comes with a bag of shrimp, a bag of vegetables, a spice mix and a foil bag.

I did not need to spend a lot of time cutting up veggies. In fact I just added some cabbage, since I adore cabbage in Chinese food. Plus this time of year, I always have some in the vegetable crisper leftover from making coleslaw. Thanks Food Lion for keeping that stocked for me. The handy dandy spice mix was perfect for the flavor of my Lo Mein, too. I added a little bit of soy sauce and sriracha to spice it up. This was one easy, peasy dinner.

Usually if I am buying shrimp, I have to plan in advance when we are having it so I can buy it in the seafood section of Food Lion.  I had never thought to buy frozen shrimp like SeaPak for Lo Mein before. Why not, I do not know. Besides from the Shrimp & Veggies Griller, I also found two other flavors I want to keep stocked. Creamy Garlic Shrimp is a healthy version of shrimp scampi. I am thinking of making with pasta, think Clams with Linguine but with Creamy Garlic Shrimp Linguine instead. The Chili Lime Marinated Shrimp are heading into a shrimp taco very soon.  Those are all meal ideas I can get on the table in about 20 minutes. Do you want me to share those recipes?

The nutritional value of all these SeaPak products works fantastically into my diet, lean proteins and fresh flavors. Plus they are gluten free, trans-fat free with no additives or preservatives. They are also versatile. You can find different ways to use them and not just the way suggested on the box. Think outside the box, pun intended! Use this product locator to find SeaPak products by you. You can also find SeaPak on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram, whatever is your social media fancy.
