#QuarantineMeals is back! This a special milestone for the series as today marks week 12 of providing you with delicious stay at home recipes to help you get through these times. 

This week we focus on a fresh and chilled meal that is perfect for the summer. No baking, no cooking, just chopping and blending flavors. The Shrimp Cocktail is the perfect seafood lover's meal that doesn’t need a whole lot of investment of time. No need to fire up the grill, just sit back and enjoy your Michelada (preferably from The Gold Michi Co), mixed with some Sancho Gold Mi Cerveza, good times are guaranteed.

Be sure to stick around and listen to this weeks #BONUSMEAL as I chop it up with legendary hip-hop recording artist R.A. The Rugged Man. (Hear Below).

If you have some favorite meals that you’d love to share, drop a line or send a photo! Hit us up and let us know what you’re cooking, and if you like we can feature your meal it on next week’s edition of #QuarantineMeals!

I hope you all enjoy these #QuarantineMeals. Please let me know how they taste and if you’ve enjoyed creating them! #STAYSAFE

Recently I chopped it up with legendary recording artist R.A. The Rugged Man. R.A. recently released his new album "All My Heroes Are Dead" available on all digital platforms.

In our conversation we spoke about mental health, R.A. shared personal stories about Sean Price, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) and The Notorious B.I.G. and of course his #QuarantineMeals! Currently living in Germany, The Rugged Man shares a simple easy pasta and hot dog meal that he enjoys and gives Jae Havana a look of what's inside his freezer!
