These Are A Few of My Favorite Things....

Just a little post about some of my favorite things lately!

This pretty box showed up on my desk yesterday!  I ordered the Black Matte ones from Nordstrom...could be the only time I wished it would rain!

I know I can't believe it either but I actually have peonies growing in my yard that I planted all by myself!  I already cut them and have them in a vase in the house just in case this NEVER happens again!

Yes it is another shopping website that Jordon (Love Always, Nancy J) found! It has FREE SHIPPING! Enjoy ladies! 

I made these amazing Skinny "Bang Bang" Shrimp Tacos for dinner the other night with mexi rice and mashed cauliflower. OMG so good and so not bad for you!  I saw the recipe on one of my favorite sites, Skinny Taste. Below is their recipe.  I added some garlic powder and onion powder to the corn starch as well.  I also served them on Corn Tortillas with broccoli slaw instead of cabbage and scallions.  

For the Shrimp:
  • 1 lb large shrimp, shelled and deveined (weight after peeled)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 3 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 4 tbsp scallions, chopped


In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, Thai sweet chili sauce and Sriracha. Set aside.
Combine lettuce and cabbage and divide between four plates. Set aside. 

Coat shrimp with cornstarch, mixing well with your hands.

Heat a large skillet or wok on high heat, when hot add oil. When oil is hot add the shrimp to hot pan and cook tossing a few times until cooked through, about 3 minutes.Remove from pan and combine with the sauce coating well.

Happy Thursday!
