Cajun Shrimp Mac & Cheese

The heat in Southern Indiana this Summer has been insane! Add in being in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy, and I am not always the most pleasant person to be around. I refuse to go outside and have been living in the house with the air conditioner wearing nothing but a sports bra and shorts. Sorry, I’m not sorry.

Normally, I only want salads in the summer time; however, pregnancy cravings are a real thing. Baby wants what baby wants, am I right?

I made a post on Facebook recently asking about favorite cheat meals and one friend responded mac & cheese. It was as simple as that. I needed mac & cheese. Not the box kind. I try to stay away from box food of any kind. I wanted real, homemade, delicious mac & cheese.

I had already told my husband we would have shrimp for dinner, so why not combine the two? Enter Cajun Shrimp Mac & Cheese. You’re welcome!

Now this is NOT my normal, healthy eating, but, hey, it’s totally okay to give into cravings from time to time, right? It’s called balance.

What is your favorite cheat meal? I’d love for you to share in the comments!
