UNproductivity: and Grilled Shrimp tacos!

The title of this post is in great need of explanation.  I do apologize for this but I couldn’t think of anything better.  Why? well because today, I have done NOTHING productive…absolutely nothing.  I have no desire to move or think…it seems everything is an effort.  So far, I woke up late ( 8am…I know it’s not that late but for me who is normally up around 6ish…it’s late or later) I had breakfast, then I sat around for quite sometime before I finally convinced myself I should go to the gym.  This is not normal, I love going to the gym, I don’t need convincing!  Then I had lunch. (yes more food!)  A few hours later, I thought it might be healthy to shower…I know; gross.  Then I did nothing…still.  I was so unmotivated that I thought “what could I make with what I have?”  Then the answer came –  Grilled Shrimp Tacos!

Eventually I put my new Tiki Torches in the ground…all 4 of them.  Wow, that was quite the effort on my part.  See how pretty:

New Tiki Torches

Maybe I will have enough in me to light them tonight and actually take a picture….we’ll see.


1-pound shrimp, cleaned and deveined

juice and zest 1 lime

1 tablespoon olive oil

salt and pepper

How to:

In a large bowl place your shrimp and toss with lime zest, juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.

I like to put my shrimp on skewers to grill them, it makes it easy and I don’t lose them in the “never-never-land” of the grill.  Make sure your grill is very hot.  Grill your shrimp 2 minutes on each side.  Make sure not to overcook them or you will have rubber shrimp…not tasty!

Grilled Shrimp...yum!

For serving:

Shredded cheese, guacamole, salsa verde, roasted tomato salsa, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, hot sauce, soft or hard tacos…etc..

Because of my laziness our side was: grilled corn with chile-lime butter….that’s right: 1 side

Chili-Lime Butter...such a beautiful color!

Grilled Corn on the Cob

I was so lazy that I texted Matt to pick up cilantro and avocados…if he really wanted guacamole.  He did.  He’s a good husband who LOVES my guacamole!

Well…here goes nothing.  I couldn’t even take a decent picture….I guess I was starving from such an hectic day!  wow…

Grilled Shrimp Tacos! Delicious!

Peace and lazy summer day,

  2. Well….the tiki torches look wonderful (your yard is amazing) and you MADE dinner! If I have a nothing day – we’re going out! I’m a firm believer in taking time for yourself. I hope you enjoyed your day and I look forward to your next post!

  3. Your garden looks wonderful and so does the meal…..Have never tried shrimp tacos, but maybe one of these days I should…

  4. I think this lack of motivation is spreading! I have been very unproductive lately too. We had a fend for yourself night so I’m impressed at your dinner 🙂 It looks lovely! P.S. Totally jealous of your chickens!
