fish tacos

forget the post a day....

tonight i made fish tacos.  i used tilapia and this recipe.  they were good.  i meant to take pictures.
served with fruit salad and followed up with raspberry sorbet and coconut cookies.

for an appetizer, i threw together a corn salsa-ish kinda thing that we ate with tortilla chips.

1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
about 1/4 cup red onion chopped
one diced ripe avocado
cilantro chopped
juice from one lime
a little salt

will make it all again!

better blog form to come later.

Speaking of fish

We're trying to eat a little bit more fish these days.  It isn't hard for us to eat a little bit more because we pretty much each none at home.  Well, there is the occasional can of tuna for salad but I think it may have been over a year since I've even done that...  Tonight - mission accomplished.  Sort of.  I've been rather reluctant.  Not because I don't like fish - which is true and probably lends itself to a lack of motivation - but because of the great price paired with great risk of failure.  Give me chicken, pork, or beef, and I feel fairly confident that I can make it edible, dare say, fairly tasty.  But fish.  Not so much.  Do I spend a lot on "good" fish and risk messing it up or do I buy "cheap" fish to test out my skills and not know if it isn't quite as tasty because it isn't quite as "good?"  hmmm.  today I gave up.  and gave in.  and bought that $5.99 box of salmon patties.  9-11 minutes in the oven + a little sour cream and lemon juice + mixed greens + a whole wheat bun + a little freshly ground pepper = not bad.

May 2 - blog post fail

This booger won't stop talking!!!

Really, he won't.

I'm hoping to blog every day this month.

My 2 year old seems to have more words to say today than I do...
