Shrimp and Single Beds

I served these for dinner last night with sauteed pattypan squash & onions but they would also make awesome weight loss surgery friendly appetizers for your holiday get-togethers. Oodles of protein (a 4 oz. serving of shrimp supplies 23 grams of protein) and super super yummy.

Shelly's Bacon-wrapped Pesto Shrimp

14 Raw Shrimp, peeled & deveined
3 Tablespoons Storebought Pesto Sauce (in the refrigerator section Contadina or Buitoni make one)
7 pieces of Raw Bacon, cut in half

Butterfly shrimp by cutting a slit along the back and gently pressing open. Smear pesto evenly in shrimp opening. Press shrimp closed. Wrap each shrimp with 1/2 a slice of bacon. Place on metal skewers (4-5 per skewer) making sure to spear through the bacon and the shrimp. BBQ for about 10 minutes turning once during cooking.

Party like a Rock Star

Highlights of the Day:

* Awake at 3 AM staring at the ceiling I came up with a killer casserole idea. Will make it today and let you know if it is as good in reality as it sounded in my mind.

* In the same ass crack of dawn brainstorming session I came up with a new 5 Minute Cake too. Watch for it.

* OK sooooo I think I need to buy a new bed. Shut up Jeremy. He teases me for sleeping in a single bed. Seriously though I'm thinking it might help my sleep issues. I figure it couldn't hurt. Any suggestions on make, style?

Listening to: "American Girl" Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. I heart this song but I must say Tom sounds seriously Bob Dylan-ish nasal.
