Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and you got to spend some time relaxing. Saturday was beautiful here and rained all day Sunday. The garden needed a bit of water to help with my newly planted seedlings, so I wasn’t too disappointed. Plus it gave me an excuse to spend time on the couch reading.
I have been doing a lot of recipe development with shrimp lately. Shrimp is one of the easiest seafood to cook with, not to mentioned it takes no time at all to cook. These Chipotle Shrimp Burrito Bowls, are gluten free and packed with tons of spice and flavor. If you are not big on spice only use 3 chipotle peppers in your sauce.
