The Davis family headed south this year for our annual summer beach trip - Siesta Key to be exact.
We had a wonderful week with lots of great family time.
We spent most of our time enjoying the beach together.
We all tried paddleboarding.
We also tried our hand at kayaking. (And 1 of us used the kayak AS a paddleboard.)
And it wouldn't be a Davis family vacation without a few bird pictures.
We also discovered that Siesta Key has beautiful sunsets.
Ahhh, the beach. It was lots of fun but I ate WAY too much on our vacation. Giant breakfast tostadas, amazing Columbian bread, delicious pizza and then there were the mini donuts and the gelato. (Killer) It's a good thing that I don't live near the Siesta village - those mini donuts were amazing.
Now that I'm home, it's time to get back on the healthy eating track. Our menu for the week after vacation - lots of fish and vegetables. I found a recipe for Lemon basil grilled shrimp in my Taste of Home magazine. It looked fabulous and it was exactly what my body was craving after a week of overindulgence.
Lemon Basil Grilled Shrimp
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup fresh basil, minced
2 pounds uncooked shrimp
Combine all ingredients, except oil.
Add shrimp and toss to coat.
Thread onto metal skewers.
Serve with couscous.
Simple and delicious - and most importantly - healthier than a cheeseburger at the hub.
