The kids and I went for a run/hike in the park yesterday. It was a beautiful day and I'm so glad we were able to be outside enjoying the nice weather. What a great way to get our exercise.
I am sticking with the theme of quick and easy dinners for today's recipe - roasted shrimp and broccoli. I threw together a side of couscous and dinner was ready in under 30 minutes - perfect.

5 cups broccoli
1 1/2 pounds shrimp

Look at the beautiful flowers that my wonderful husband brought home this week. Isn't he the best? I think so.
