Shrimp and Sausage Spanish Rice
Cue some summer dinner vibes with sausage and shrimp rice cause it’s an easy-breezy dinner meal as in you can make it under 30 mins and requires practically no prep. Oh, and it pairs nicely with that chilled glass of wine you may or may not need (cheers). Me, I need it all, wine included, cause we just got back from a vacation after vacation, and while both were great, traveling (back-to-back) with toddlers is not for the faint-hearted (read: me!).
The dinner time struggle this time of year, for me, seems so real because of 1). it’s hot, like really hot, and I don’t want to turn my stove on, 2). I’m running low on energy cause of that whole no school and kids home all day thing (love them though), and 3). I really just want to drink smoothies or eat snacks for dinner instead. That should be a thing, I might do it…

Tips for Cooking Shrimp and Sausage
- Purchase pre-chopped and canned ingredients where possible.
- Cook all the ingredients in one skillet, with the exception of the rice which goes in a separate pot.
- Use the yellow rice seasoning bag when cooking the rice for extra flavor.
While the mixture cooks it smells SO GOOD friends. You may just want to eat it straight from the skillet but hold back cause when it’s paired with the rice you’re gonna experience a mind-blowing dinner experience and you don’t want to miss it.
