Garlic Shrimp and Goat Cheese Tacos

Well shall we just admit that this whole “Going to Mexico in T-minus 10 days is really getting to me?” First it’s Mexican Pasta, now it’s shrimp tacos. I know.  But you would be excited too if you had a hot 7 day date with your kindle, and the sounds of the ocean crashing behind you.

And so when you’re preparing for vacations like these, I recommend an “immersion” process. It’s the process by which you eat all of the carbs possible to give you the strength to pack.  You have to make sure said carbs are ones you would find on your vacation, because you’re obviously getting your body ready to accept such carbs consumed on vacation.

Then you go into your room to pack, and you pack only things with stretchy waists, because you know you’re going on vacation, so real pants are not allowed. Neither are bras with under-wire, unless you’re traveling with someone that might offend.   But the real question is, why are you traveling with someone that may offend?

As a matter of fact, you might want to go ahead and eliminate bras with under-wire while eating these tacos, too.  I don’t really know why, but it just sounded like a good idea.  I read some girl’s tweet the other day, she exclaimed that winning the superbowl must feel like taking off your bra.

And, duh.

So, tacos.  They’re garlicy, loaded with guacamole and goat cheese and they are heavenly.

  1. Made these for dinner last night in Oklahoma City, OK. The husband is a huge fan of shrimp, my two toddler boys and I however, are not! These tacos changed my mind and the mind of the little ones! The shrimp cooked up so tender and the flavors were amazing! Thank you for the recipe! The only thing I added was a little sliced fresh jalapeños! So good!
