Crispy Cajun Fried Shrimp- This shrimp is moist, juicy and crunchy.

Do you love seafood??? I know I do. Crabs, Salmon, Shrimp you name it, I will indulge.  Please don’t judge me.  As a kid, I remember during the summertime at my grandmother’s house having fish fries.  Man…let me tell you, I was in heaven when I received my plate.

My mother didn’t fry much so it was a treat to me when I did receive the blessing. As a result, I believe I have a fried food weakness. If you say fried anything, I want a piece. That brings me to this JUICY, MOIST, and CRUNCHY Cajun Fried Shrimp!

When my family and I had these succulent sensational shrimp for dinner, they barely could make it out of the grease, let alone to the plate.  They didn’t stand a chance.  When we finally sat down to eat they were always almost gone.  Those were the good ole times.

If you enjoy shrimp and fried foods, make this on a Saturday night with some sweet potato fries, and you will not regret it!

Turkey Pesto Sandwich Melts

Who knows what a Turkey Pesto Sandwich Melt is? For those of you who don’t know, it’s honestly just a fancy grilled cheese sandwich.  Who doesn’t love an evenly cooked grilled cheese sandwich???  As a kid growing up, that was my favorite dish that could be cooked in no time.  After coming home from a long day at school, my mom would bless me with at least two.  Yes, I know, I sound like a fat girl, but that’s okay!  :-)

In this post, I wanted to recreate one of my childhood favorites into a full meal with some protein a.k.a MEAT!  I decided to add turkey and a few extras and voila!  A cheesy gooey Turkey Pesto Sandwich Melt!  I think it’s a winner because my husband devoured the whole thing before I could say lunch was ready.  LOL!  Gotta love the boo.

Try out these “modern” grilled cheese sandwiches and let me know what you think.
