Creole Crock Pot

Our cooking club met again this week and I have already enjoyed half of the meals! Our menu included: creole crock pot shrimp & chicken, chicken parm meatloaf, veggie lasagna, Stromboli and chicken fajitas.  The very first thing I made was creole crock pot shrimp, from Michelle.  It was so yummy!!  I can't wait to share the rest of the recipes with you, but first here is a super easy crock pot wonder!

To eat:

2. During the last 30 minutes of cooking, add shrimp
3. Serve over rice and enjoy!

2. Place shrimp in smaller freezer bag.
3. Place both bags in a larger bag, labeled with date and contents.
