Thank you, All Recipes! This awesome website helped James and I prepare dinner tonight. (I cooked, he cleaned. (I know, my husband is the man. As I am typing this, he is also folding the laundry!)
For starters, we were considering making a homemade pizza. From-scratch-crust and all.
That didn't work out, because ... well, we're lazy bums (He worked 24 hours straight yesterday) and I didn't feel like hitting up the grocery store for a list that seemed to be growing like the plague, (pizza pan, rolling pin, active dry yeast, marinara sauce, red peppers, etc.) After deciding a long trip to the store for all of this might be a wee bit excessive, we thought of perhaps just ordering a pizza. But, I just went grocery shopping yesterday, and I didn't want to spend money ordering-in. Yet, even James thought it would nice if I took a "night off" from cooking. (I love my husband for recognizing this!!)
We both agreed saving money, yet keeping it easy in the kitchen would be the win-win. What did we already have that could be whipped together? All Recipes held the answer. James and I both knew we wanted something light, healthy and simple. We had frozen tilapia in the freezer, so I started with that.
It didn't take long to find the golden nugget of tilapia recipes. We went with this recipe, altered just a little to suit what we had in the fridge and our nutrition needs (I cut out a lot of the butter.)
Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
Earlier today we were watching the Food Network, and some cook was grilling onions and zukes, and I couldn't wait to try it out as a side of my own. I just threw some oil in a pan, sliced up some onion and half-mooned some zucchini. Easy peasy. Good to go and so, so, soooo nom-nom.
Serving it up on the plate, we got a little excited. After the first bite, we decided this recipe is a keeper, and so worth sharing!
All-in-all, a super tasty dinner that I can't wait to make again!
What's next? Looking for a healthy apple crisp recipe of some sort.
