Fish Tacos

fullsizeoutput_b3

 Fish Tacos to me are so refreshing, unlike red meat fish is not as heavy its lighter on the Stomach. When I was younger I was never a big fan of Fish Tacos, but after I spend a year living in Puerto Penasco, Mexico I came to love this types of Tacos. 

 Ingredients

  • 1 Lb of Telapia
  • 1 tsp of Salt 
  • 1 tsp of  black  ground pepper
  • a pinch of ground red pepper
  • 1 Tbls of Olive Oil 
  • 2 Tbls of Lime Juice 

Get a Ziplock Bag and place the salt, black ground pepper, red pepper, olive oil, and lime juice inside the bag and mix well. Once mixed place your Tilapia inside and start rubbing all the ingredients to the fish and place it in the refrigerator for about 30 min. Heat up a pan with olive oil on medium heat and place your fish and let it cook on each side for 4 to 5 min. Heat up you favorite kind of Corn Tortillas and add your fish. This Tacos pare great with my Mango Salsa. I really hope you all enjoy this recipe thank you for stoping by.

Ice Cream is one of my weaknesses, I have tried all types of flavors but chocolate has to be my number one love. But the other day I was walking around Safeway and before I walked to the check stand I saw this Ice Cream. I have never heard of this brand before and if I am being honest the packaging sucked me in. I mean come on its super cute,it was an I’m pulse buy.  I was not disappointed at all this is my 3rd tub,it taste just like birthday cake.If you have ever had the Oreo Birthday cake cookies this taste just like them,I highly recommend it. I hope you all give it try, I would love too know if you do and what you think about it. Thank you for stoping by. Lorenia  

New Buys

I went to the Drugstore last night and got a few things that I have been wanting to try out.First thing I purchase was the new Foundation by Wet n Wild, I’ve hear a lot a good things about it and it had great reviews on their website. I had been looking for this foundation every where and  CvS is the only places that I was able to find it. I’m going to give it a go this week and see how I feel about it.

My next perches was the Contouring Palette in Dulce de leche by Wet n Wild.  I have yet to find a contour color that I like from the drugstore.This looks like the type of shade  that I would use for contouring. I have high hopes for it, Wet n Wild have been stepping up their game lately.

NYX is an other drugstore brand that I really enjoy, they have great quality products for an affordable price. I know this is not new but, I wanted to try it out I am always in the look out for a great primer that can fill my pores. Lets see if this can do the trick.

Lastly I wanted to get a new beauty sponge, I love my Beauty Blender  but if we are been honest it’s a little up there in the price range. Don’t get me wrong I think it’s worth the splurge, but sometimes I don’t want to spend the money. Real Technics has some of my favorite Drugstore brushes, I figured I couldn’t go wrong with the Sponge.
