Shrimp and Couscous

So tonight I forgot to take pictures until we were all the way done with our food, so you get the leftover pictures :)  We had Israeli Couscous Taco Salad and Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp for dinner tonight, and what a great dinner it was.

The shrimp had great flavor, and was super easy, but since we cooked the shrimp with the shells on and they were a pain to take off after cooking, we only gave the recipe a 7.  If it had been shelless it would have been a 9.  The calories for 1/2 the recipe, so one pound of shrimp, four servings is 291/serving.  We'll definitely make this again, I'll just shell the shrimp first then cook it in a pan.

The couscous taco salad was soooo great.  I give it a 10, so does Noah, and Owen and Aaron gave it a 9.  It was fresh, fast, easy and amazing.  The flavors were great, and it was pretty healthy.  We made the full recipe, and cut into 6 servings the calories were 320/serving.  I could probably eat this every day, it's so flipping good :). 
Tomorrow we're having some breakfast bars, and some meatballs from the Pioneer Woman.
