We treated ourselves to Mexican food this week, and I can honestly say I didn’t make the best choice (I overate big time and had a stomach ache because of it!) Austin made a much better choice than me, and got some delicious shrimp fajitas - so I wanted to try to make my own this week! I served mine with some avocado salsa and non-fat plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream!
My kitchen helper is still being a little lazy this week as you can see! And yes, I had to get a little creative and make my own taco stand out of aluminum foil ♀️
