My life is getting very busy right now.  I have three kids in sports, and I feel like I’m running to practices and games every night of the week.  I normally have shrimp in my freezer because you can make a great meal in a short amount of time.  Luckily, everyone in my house loves it.  

My family has tried just about every one of these quick and easy shrimp recipes and has approved of all of them.  I’m allergic to shrimp and I normally have leftovers on these nights which is perfect because I don’t like things to go to waste.
