Have you or someone in your family already been hit with that winter cold that always comes around this time of year? Isn't it the worst?! When my loved ones come down with something rotten, I like to put together a cute little "Get Well Soon" care package to cheer them up. I've partnered with Gorton's Seafood to share some ideas of the coziest comfort items, including the yummy new Gorton's Shrimp Bowls!
When I am under the weather, the last thing I want to think about is cooking. Usually the only thing that sounds good is something warm with real vegetables (think homemade chicken noodle soup), but will take me less than 10 minutes to prepare. Gorton's Shrimp Bowls are a complete meal of the tastiest shrimp with real ingredients like edamame, peppers, and mushrooms, and they are the PERFECT meal to throw in the microwave when you really just want to eat a warm dinner and go to bed.
For that reason, they are the first item I put in "Get Well Soon" baskets! These Gorton's Shrimp Bowls come in two varieties: Black Garlic & Wine Risotto (which has a delightful touch of parmesan cheese) and Stir Fry with Soba Noodles. Both are packed with flavor and have a real kick of spice. They really do taste as good as they look! My family has been enjoying Gorton's Seafood for years and I completely trust their products for meals that I'd serve to my kids and loved ones.
I like to fill the rest of my Get Well Soon baskets with cheerful things like quirky socks and the softest bunny slippers. Lemons and honey are important for making the perfect cup of herbal tea. A new loofah, water bottle, and a bottle of sanitizer are sick-day essentials that most people don't think about. Don't forget to throw in a sweet smelling candle and a pretty box of tissues!
Sunny yellow daisies or other fresh flowers and a hand-written "Get Well Soon" card are the perfect final touches, but I'm pretty sure your basket recipient will love the Gorton's Shrimp Bowls the most!
These meals are cooked to perfection in under 6 minutes. Even when I'm not sick or in a hurry to get dinner on the table, I'll indulge in these shrimp bowls all the time. They are just so filling, so delicious, and quite healthy too!
This Stir Fry with Soba Noodles dinner is only 290 calories and 16g of protein! The Black Garlic & Wine Risotto Shrimp Bowl is packed with so much flavor. The shrimp pairs so well with the black garlic and I love the hint of parmesan cheese at the end. The shrimps are large, juicy, and the stars of the meal! One of the best parts is at the end of the meal when I can toss the bowl and enjoy no dishes!
Do you have any "Get Well Soon" basket ideas?
I'd love to hear about them!
