Level Up Your Home with Dollar General Decor

Okay just so everyone knows aka public service announcement – the DG has the CUTEST decor right now! I could seriously buy every basket. I think I have a basket obsession.

Dollar General has really stepped up their decor game. From lamps to baskets to cute little signs, I mean they have it going on!

Take a look at some really cute pieces I recently bought from our local DG!

The sign and the plant stand that I’m using as a soap and lotion tray!
This adorable basket and it was only $8!
These cute plants! $3!
The sign, plants, and cute wash cloths!

Like I said the DG is where it’s at! I am excited to transition to spring in just a few months!

Cumin Shrimp Tacos

Cumin Shrimp Tacos

Ok I am a huge seafood fan and I love a good fish or shrimp taco!!! I used frozen, already peeled shrimp from Walmart but the next time I cook this I think I’ll get the shrimp that I peel myself just because I think the quality is better!

Ok here’s the recipe!:

  • 2 lbs (depending on family size) frozen shrimp
  • Shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 c Lime juice
  • 1/2 c Olive Oil
  • Cumin seasoning
  • Garlic salt seasoning
  • Pepper
  • Chili powder
  • Paprika seasoning
  • Tortillas
  • Sour cream

Ok so start by unthawing your shrimp! Then mix 1/2 c lime juice with 1/2 cup oil. I used olive oil. Pour that over the shrimp in a bowl and season shrimp with cumin, pepper, chili powder, paprika, and garlic salt. I always just eyeball it and season to taste.

Sauté shrimp in a skillet. I ALWAYS use cast iron. For tips on how to cook with cast iron, follow my blog!

Heat up tortillas in the oven for 3-5 minutes on 350 degrees.

Place shrimp in tortilla and top with shredded lettuce and sour cream! It’s that easy! We topped ours with hot sauce and cheese too!

Tip: You can also use bagged cole slaw mix and mix it with lime juice as a topping.

Enjoy!
