Shrimp Fajitas

I’m loving using this new meal-planning website I came across recently. We’re finding some great recipes off of it and having fun trying out new things. This one is definitely a keeper! The shrimp have such great flavor and it’s super fast and easy to make. Perfect for a busy weeknight!

Yummmmm, dinner!
