Garlic & Lime Shrimp With Spanish Rice
I found this great recipe in last Sunday's paper and thought I'd share with you all. I love cooking quick, simple and easy meals throughout the week as I hate being in the kitchen. This meal was very simple to make and right up my alley. Plus DH loved it, so I can't complain. Enjoy!
