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
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
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?
