My top priorities for weekends are to stay active and to have fun! And this last weekend was no exception! Friday started out amazing, not only because I had the day off of work, but because I got to spend it with my sister in law on her birthday, as well as both my brothers and a few other close friends for a fun filled/bruise inducing day on the slopes! Followed by a day of R&R, and a night of bartending.
Saturday, some of the fam came over for some food and football. I’m not much on football, but I do love me some food! I want to share a recipe I used for my shrimp ceviche, especially for my friend Sarah who wanted a good appetizer!
- 1lb cooked shrimp
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- Juice of 3 limes
- 1 cup pico de gallo
- 1 large avacado
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 tbsp ketchup, as I like mine with a hint of cocktail
Mix everything together, being careful not to mash the avacado, chill for an hour, and enjoy with tortilla chips!
If I were to make this again, I would chop the shrimp into smaller pieces making it easier to scoop up on a chip 🙂 I have made this using white fish before. In this case, you squeeze the lime over the fish and let it sit overnight, this cooks the fish. Then add everything else the next day! So good, and good for you!
Sunday was a much needed day of Faith. The Sis in Law and I checked out a new church, Real Life Ministries (the old Gold’s gym on the North side). I don’t want to critique it just yet, as the head pastor was out of the country for other ministry related duties. But it is a beautiful church and I like the way the day care is run, they actually teach there rather than just color and play 🙂
Next up was the Roller Rink with these cuties…
My arms are still sore from pulling them around! Then, somebody got a bright idea to buy some temporary tattoos out of the quarter machines (It may have been me… maybe 😉
I’m still laughing, and saying my prayers that they are temporary… Since I’m currently at session 3 of having my “tramp stamp” removed… UGHHH
All in all, fabulous weekend. I love my family and friends way more than I actually tell them, something I may need to work on ❤
