Easy Dinner Recipe: Shrimp Fajitas Foil Packets & Fun Stuff

It was an absolutely beautiful day. 78° sunny, cool breeze. I hit the Farmer's Market this morning. Lots of great stuff! Today's haul: strawberries, blueberries, Maui onions, peppers, 3 kinds of squash, tomatoes, mandarins, avocados and an awesome WOW moment...

A lady I used to work with but haven't seen since before my surgery recognized my Mum and asked about me while I was standing right there. She was floored. I love it. Weight Loss Surgery rocks!

Came home did some cooking... a yummy breakfast I took food porn of and need to post for sure and a little gardening. The tomato plants are HUGE. Finished the day sitting on the patio enjoying tonight's super quick & easy dinner. These shrimp are great tossed on top of a salad or we served them as is with cheese topped refried beans on the side. Yum!

Michelle,
Loved your WOW moment! I had one similar, but I learned about it second-hand. One day my mother and I stopped the car on the side of the road so my mom could talk to our neighbor who was working in his yard (I was driving). Later he told his wife he had talked to my mother but he didn't know who was in the car with her. His wife told him it was me and he said, "No, it wasn't Connie." He didn't even recognize me! Cool, huh?

Hey Shelly, sounds so yummy, so novice cooker over here wondering what to do if you live in a condo and have no bbq? Very excited we were able to buy our first place, but big time missing the yard and bbq this time of year. I have a grill plate? oven? Foreman grill? Thanks - Em
