we had lemon pepper seasoned talapia served over a bed of rice. mangoes. broccoli. and mac n cheese.
ignore the package of choc chip muffins in the picture. i didn't make them.
you might have noticed the almost/on the verge of being yucky bananas that don't look too appealing (ha--get it!) in the midst of all the ingredients, though. they were for the homemade banana bread i made! yummmmmo.
you can't tell that i love and use this recipe all the time, can you?
my cuz cassie gave me this awesome collection of recipes 13 years ago. in it there are family recipes and other assorted recipes. she typed them all out and put them in a three ring binder. it's one of my most cherished positions. that book taught me how to cook! well.......that book and alot of calling relatives to figure out what i was doing wrong. (heck i still do that. i called my mom tonight asking how to cook the talapia. she said cook it till it flakes. i said ok. and commenced to cooking. i called her back about 30 minutes later asking what "flakes" means! LOL)
oh my goodness, i just took the bread out of the oven--literally. and it smells goooooood.
in non-food and more crafty related news, we have decided to recover our nasty kitchen table chairs. seriously, they were gross. and people didn't want to sit on them even when i said, "it's dry! i promise nothing will get on you if you sit there!"
and the chair back together.
we only got one done tonight. that's ok. if we do one a night we'll be done with the whole set in a week. to me that's progress. sweet.
UPDATE ON THE BANANA BREAD i got one small slice last night and it was deelish. so good and moist. i left it on the counter. this morning while we were all gone dropping off bray at school, apparently the dog thought it was good too.
