Shrimp & Feta Orzo Bake is a one-dish meal with whole wheat orzo pasta, shrimp and feta for a flavorful and healthy dinner idea. If you are like me and hate doing dishes, a one-dish meal is a dream. Not only is this easy to prepare, but it is impressive enough to serve at any dinner party for a no-mess no-fuss meal. Pair it with a nice Chardonnay and some roasted asparagus for a complete meal that you can serve while entertaining or for a date night at home with your special someone.
I made this dish all for myself this weekend while my husband was away, busy working. Some times we need to dedicate a little “me time” for ourselves and enjoy a bit of relaxation with the things we love. For some people that might mean chilling at a coffee shop with your favorite book or perhaps a spa day, but for me it means a great meal and a glass of wine with my favorite magazines. This year I resolved to make more of an effort to set aside some relaxing time for myself so I can decompress from everything going on in my busy life, such as work and a stressful home remodel.
I went on a quick shopping trip last week with a friend to grab some groceries and remodeling supplies. I took the opportunity to swing by Walmart and grab some of the things on my shopping list in addition to a few of my favorite magazines, including All You® and InStyle®. I used this Walmart digital coupon that is available until 2/16/15 while supplies last, to save $1.00 off ONE (1) PEOPLE®, InStyle®, PEOPLE StyleWatch®, All You®, or Real Simple® magazine. I do love saving money, whether it is one dollar or a hundred!
All You® has long been a favorite of mine with plenty of great money-saving ideas, projects and naturally my favorite, recipes! I was flipping through the magazines and found so much fantastic inspiration for dinner. The BBQ chicken pizza sounded tempting but I ended up making a variation of the Baked Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta. I decided to add orzo to the dish to make it a complete meal and added some more flavor with white wine and garlic.
Do you set aside some “me time” during the hustle and bustle of your daily life? If so what do you do to take some relaxing moments for yourself?
