THIS kind of 100 degrees.
Boo hiss. After a close to 50 hour crazy work week , I couldn’t wait until this weekend to relax and do some fun stuff. Guess my body had other ideas (at least for today!)
My 7am wakeup call for a much needed yoga session turned into lying on the couch and watching every episode of 16 & Pregnant on demand all day. I’ll admit defeat :P
But thankfully I’ve finally gotten some energy to break out the computer so I just had to share this gorgeous dinner that The Man and I enjoyed last night – nothing stops me from blogging apparently? ;)
Spicy Pepper Jack Potatoes
White potatoes plus spicy pepperjack cheese. We are addicts, love this stuff.
Boiled for 10 minutes until partially cooked, then sliced.
1 tblsp butter whisked with 1 tbslp flour. Then 1 cup milk. Then 2/3 block of the cheese.
Creamy thick goodness :D
Layered atop the sliced potatoes and baked at 375F for 20 minutes until bubbly.
Don’t know why I don’t cook with this type of potato more often? So moist & tender!
Lemon-Panko Crusted Tilapia
Seasoned with sea salt & black pepper.
Where has panko been all my life?
Whole Foods tilapia, which although farm raised, is supposedly done to the highest of standards, re: no hormones used for sex reversal, no antibiotics and no preservatives.
A simple dip into some milk, a roll in the panko then topped with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
Doesn’t get any easier.
“Fried” up in a mixture of 1 tblsp butter + 1 tblsp olive oil until done.
The Man raved about this fish. And proceeded to eat 3 filets. Some slathered in cocktail sauce. It was a sight to behold.
Want to see what happens when you ask The Man to set the table…
Anything look a little out of place here?
Ah men… I should have known better when I bought this for him for Christmas ;)
Alright alright, I’ll stop giving The Man a hard time, especially since he’s had to put up with me being sick all day all while keeping my ice cream stash full :)
I’ll take it.
Well back to resting, hoping for a quick turnaround and a better health day tomorrow! Now if only I had some more 16 & Pregnant to keep me busy… House Hunters it is?
