We have gotten back into trying to follow a low carb diet. While I certainly miss yummy sandwiches and baked goods, it’s pretty amazing how much better I have been feeling! I haven’t been perfect but have been actually enjoying what we have been eating over the past week and am eager to continue discovering new, yummy recipes and keeping on this healthy path.
This past week I had made some homemade tomatilla salasa to go with some shrimp tacos (using the amazing HEB low carb tortillas). I still wanted to do something with shrimp to use up the tomatilla salsa so I decided to make shrimp bowls! I didn’t really have a recipe in mind, I just threw them together but they turned out so amazing! And only about 3 net carbs per serving!! We will definately be making this dish a lot, and you could easily swap in different types of protien!
I hate to be that person, but I can’t believe we are already halfway through the year. I meant to post this at the beginning of July but the month has already started to get away from me. This year has held it’s fair share of ups and downs. It’s flow by, but at the same time, seemed have dragged by. We don’t have any major trips planned for the year. That’s a first for us. But I am grateful we still find a way to find a little adventure each week, it’s month, even if we are just exploring our own neck of the woods. We are firm believers in being tourists in your own town, and thankfully Texas is huge and we have only begun to scratch the surface!
I am all about fruit and cold desserts this time of year. Give me chilled creme brulee, chilled pies, ice cream, berries and cream, I’m all for it this hot time of year. I think my favorite of all is tres leches. I’d have it every day if I could! Hahaha. So today I have to share this easy and amazing recipe for Tres Leches cupcakes!
This past weekend we visited the Sherwood Forest Faire in McDade, east of Austin. We had kept seeing ads for it and when I came across discounted tickets thanks to Costco we decided to give it a try. I didn’t honestly have very high hopes for it, thinking it wouldn’t be as great as my much loved, and missed Maryland Ren Fest, but I was actually blown away!
Saturday morning we started the day at the San Antonio Highland Games. Dave was so excited to get himself some Haggis, but sadly the food truck he loved wasn’t there, and from what we found online it looks like they are no longer in business, so sad! We still was able to find some Haggis to enjoy though. One day we will need to go to Scotland and get a proper dish of haggis. It is actually pretty good stuff! Every single time we go to a Scottish festival it is rainy weather, which I suppose is pretty fitting, hahaha!
