Fiesta Lime Shrimp + Coconut Cloud Rice + Mango-Avocado Salsa, OH YUM

i am so happy you guys loved the video my Insta Hubs and i did!  we had fun making it and there will be more coming (long as Sonny can eat the food once we're done). #PaidInFood

we bought a larger grill pan that looks exactly like this one at the store earlier that day and it has improved my cooking routine this week tremendously.

i can whip up more food at once and get outta the kitchen faster.

which is a great thing, cause this season of our lives is pretty darn busy... and it's just the tip of the iceberg (did you see yesterday's announcement post?? woo hooooo!).  grateful and counting every hill and/or mountain we climb all joy.  i was recently discussing with one of my postpartum clients about how thanking God and counting your blessings when you get overwlehmend or down truly works.  been doing that a ton lately!  it never fails to pick me back up and motivate me to just keep walking. 

k back to the food-- if you've never cooked your rice in coconut milk, well your FOMO should be flaring up right about now!  you have GOT to try it and thank me later with a tag on IG. I'll be looking for it!  anyway, this was my first time using the coconut milk and it will not be my last, just wow.  i use a rice cooker by the way; everyone always thinks it's a crock pot ;)
