We’ve been gearing up to get the toddler ready to start up pre-school again and he’s not too excited about it. While we were making a 45-minute car drive to the zoo yesterday we talked about starting up school for basically the entire ride.  I talked about the fun he’d have and the friends he’d make and reminded him of all the fun things he did last year in pre-school. His side of the conversation included telling me he would 1. miss the baby, 2. the baby would miss him 3. he didn’t want to go, and 4. school is too looooong.

He begged and begged me to tell him he didn’t have to go to school and when he didn’t get the answer he wanted he said, “Okay mom, how about this. How about I go to school one time and then never, ever again!” “That okay mama?”

He’s quite the negotiator but unfortunately, he won’t be getting what he wants when it comes to school. Which only means I’ve got to make the most of the rest of the summer we’ve got, right?! And what better way to take advantage of summer than 1. using zucchini, 2. grilling, and 3. FOIL PACKS! Because that is pretty much the story of this blog during the summer…and the toddler is as happy as can get if he gets “hot dogs” in his dinner! ?Delicious FOIL PACK garlic butter and herb sausage, shrimp, and veggies!

These garlic herb foil packs are so delicious! The recipe is adapted from an all-time reader favorite on my site; these foil pack sausage and veggies meal. That recipe has dozens of rave reviews and everyone agrees the seasoning on those is the BEST! So I slightly adapted that seasoning mix, changed up the veggies a little so they could cook the same speed as the shrimp, and of course added shrimp!

The shrimp and sausage together in these foil packs are seriously amazing and complement each other really well.

This dish is also pretty healthy with all the veggies, shrimp, olive oil, and seasonings. I also use turkey sausage to keep these on the healthier side. You can use a different kind of sausage but you’ll want to make sure it’s smoked/fully cooked before adding it to the foil packs.  (I buy hardwood smoked Turkey Sausage for these foil packs). A raw sausage won’t be cooked through by the time the shrimp and veggies are done, but a pre-cooked sausage will get perfectly warmed through and benefit from being cooked with all the other ingredients and seasoning mix.
