Recipe Review: Shrimp Boil and Foil Packets

Shrimp Boil and Foil PacketsSo our old barbecue grill finally gave out after 15 years of grilling! I loved that grill but, it was definitely time to get a new one. After looking around at different models, we decided to go with the Weber Spirit. We got it at Lowe’s with free assembly and delivery so we were happy campers! After the grill was delivered,  I could not wait to fire it up and try this Shrimp Boil and Foil Packets recipe I saw on Facebook!

Link to the recipe here.

I love when a recipe mixes up in one bowl and you have a whole meal in one packet! You can also substitute or add your favorite vegetables or use turkey sausage links, whatever you prefer!  However,  it was perfectly delicious with just shrimp, corn, sausage, and potatoes!

I  hope it will last another 15 years like my old one, LOL! Okay family, see you all on the 4th of July…Mama’s got a new grill!!

Stay busy being fabulous,
