Oh my lord was I tired on Monday! I could have slept for another 8 hours I think after the weekend plus the boyfriend was tossing and turning which kept waking me up. The only way I was going to make it through the day was some Starbucks, so I headed over before work and got my new favorite summer drink.
It is an iced Mocha Lite. The description says it tastes like chocolate milk for adults who like coffee. I wouldn’t say it is very sweet, more of a coco taste to it, and it is so refreshing.
After that my day went well, I decided the cafe in the building I work in cannot make food to save their lives, so I went shopping after work so I could have lunches for the rest of the week and make dinners. I was thinking about what I wanted and knew I would only need to plan three nights, seafood was fresh in the mind but I wanted something that I could have the boyfriend grill since it is so hot out right now. Shrimp was what was calling to me so I jumped on Pintrest to see what looked good. I stumbled across a shrimp with pesto recipe and after making a few tweaks to it thought it would be the perfect dinner. I didn’t want to grill them anymore though because I wanted them to cook in the pesto so I could use the extra sauce instead of throw it away.
What I came up with was super easy and I had dinner made in almost 10 minutes!
