Hump Day – My latest Fashion Finds at Target

I Loves me some Target! So much so, that I got that Red card to save me an extra 5%! What I have a  lot of luck in, is the the shoe department. My latest find was from Fashionistaover40. I had been eyeing these Birk’s before Essence, but didn’t want to pay that price, so I settled for some Sam & Libby’s that my BFF sent me a pic of, that were a fraction of the cost at $29.99. Here is a pic:

This shoe also came in a silver color as well, but is no longer sold online or in the store.

Now, back to the Birk look-a-like, I was actually in Houston, TX over the weekend when I read Fashionistaover4o’s blog and found the shoes were the topic of her blog post. I didn’t dare seek out a Target store there because we were already pressed for time, so I just looked online when I got home and it looked like I was in luck, I could find these in store and I did. So, on my lunch, I traveled on down the road to the closest location and score! They are beauties:

These also come in black and brown, the brown actually looks bronze, go figure:

And then, this happened:

As you can already tell, I Loves me an animal print too lol! This shoe is also available in black:

All of these latest finds are on sale this week for $19! Get you some!

The finished product = Delicious!

Recipe is below:

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. wild caught whole salmon fillet
  • 2 Tb. olive oil
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeño, grated
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the salmon fillet on it. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Whisk the oil, lime zest, and garlic together. Grate the jalapeño and smell for spiciness. If it is very spicy (or you are sensitive to spice) add only half the grated pepper. Otherwise add it all to the oil mixture. Pour the mixture over the salmon fillet and salt the pepper liberally.
  3. Bake for 10-14 minutes, until just cooked through, but not dry. Squeeze lime juice over the top and serve warm.

Mods: I used Salmon Seasoning in lieu of salt and pepper. Also, I failed to buy Parchment paper, so I just used aluminum foil.

Verdict: I would definitely make this again!

Bon Appetit!
