Daily Inspirations and Adventures

Mexican (and Ice Cream Sandwich) Monday

leave a comment »

Mike and I have a tradition – Mexican dinner on Mondays. It kind of gets you through the day knowing that good food is coming that night.  Last night Vicki and Dave came over for dinner so I made shrimp tacos, instead of our usual chicken ones.  Grilled shrimp tacos with homemade pico de gallo, guacamole, toasted corn tortillas, black beans, Skinny Girl Margaritas and Coronoas.  Followed Gwyneth’s recipe (can be found here).  It was super easy, pretty healthy and really yummy.

Vicki was in charge of dessert – of course she outdid herself.  She made ice cream sandwiches out of freshly baked cookies and gelato (espresso cookie with sea salt caramel gelato, whole wheat dark chocolate chip cookies w/ sea salt caramel gelato, strawberry sorbet and sugar cane lime cookies with almonds).

I’m thinking tonight will be “Yoga and Salad Tuesday” to make up for it!  🙂
