Well, hello you
Strawberry Jam

Do you GOOP?

I know I just said I'd be gone for awhile, but then something happened that I think is blog worthy, so here I am.  Are you all familiar with Gwyneth Paltrow's newsletter, GOOP?  I don't remember how I was turned onto it, but I have been subscribing for awhile now.  Yesterday, this little gem landed in my inbox.  The timing could not have been more perfect:  I was just looking for something to make for dinner.  Shrimp tacos, anyone?

June 3

They were fantastically fresh, simple and easy - all things I like in a meal.  I didn't follow the recipe.  Instead, I watched the video and I enjoyed how Gwyneth just showed you what to do.  Really, nothing needed to be precise.  I opted out of the guacamole because the avocado I had wasn't ripe and substituted green for red with the jalapeno and red for white with the onion.  Otherwise, I just followed her lead.  It was a great meal for us because Jane, who is allergic to shellfish, could still make herself veggie tacos while us other three ate the shrimp.  We were all members of the clean plate club.  Thumbs up all around!

Have a great weekend.

I had no idea about GOOP, crazy. Thanks for the lead Erin. I hope you have a great weekend too!


looks good! I am hoarding my gulf shrimp right now- buying it whenever I see it and stashing it away. I love love shrimp but am trying to be sparing with it.


Love GOOP- I'm making the black beans as we speak to go with pork tacos tonight.

They sound wonderful. I had never heard of GOOP but need to check that out.

I am new to your blog and love it. We are up to much of the same as you now that summer break is here.



I saw those! I am assuming they are as good as they looked (I would have eaten either kid or adult version).


I love Goop and saw that. But I think I love Gwyneth even more. She's so loveable.

Happy Weekend, Erin!

These were delicious! Living on the Florida Gulf coast, we are savoring each and every gulf shrimp we eat these days and saying prayers for our coastline. Thank you for reminding me of GOOP.

I didn't Goop before, but I certainly do now! After much searching for healthy school lunches, I found an entire list on Goop that my daughters would love to eat. They'll eat anything, but the JUNK served in America's schools, thank God. Gwyneth is so awesome. Thanks for the link!


I've subscribed to GOOP for quite awhile. I like to pretend that I'm wealthy enough to afford half of the restaurants, cleanses, etc. that she recommends! I loved her easy dinner this week and the amazing Nashville remodel last week.
