I mean just look at this!
I decided to go ahead and do a couple other awesome food pictures and links after the amazing hot chocolate and I haven't made the following but I probably will for the hubs.
Eggnog makes me want to vomit. But hubby and a couple of the kids LOVE it. There is just no accounting for taste, is there? But I will cave since it's the holidays and give this one a whirl. From the blog I Heart Nap Time.
Our freezer co-op is still amazing. And totally 100% delicious. I made Mediterranean Tilapia for my meal the last round. I originally got the recipe off a blog, but I don't remember which one unfortunately, so I can't direct you to the original. I made a few changes and this rocked my socks.
Mashing it up and mixing it together is the best way.
Here's the recipe:
6 Tilapia fillets
8 tbsp. of Sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, chopped
3 tbsp. of capers, drained NOT FROZEN
3 tbsp. Olives, chopped NOT FROZEN
Lemon juice, NOT INCLUDED
2 cloves of garlic
Olive oil or butter for drizzling fish OPTIONAL
Prep for cooking:
Thaw fish. Pre-heat the oven to 375. Place the tilapia fillets in a baking dish. Drizzle with lemon juice (not included). Optional: brush with olive oil or butter before drizzling with lemon juice. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until fish flakes with a fork, turn once half way through. While the fish is baking, mix together the sun-dried tomatoes, capers and olives in a small bowl. Set aside. Once the tilapia is finished baking top with tomato mixture, serve and enjoy!
And artichoke potatoes was recommended as a side course so a quick hop on pinterest led me to this beauty from The Good Eatah. (It doesn't appear that the blog is still running, her last entry was in September 2012.)
Can I just say how amazing this recipe was with the Mediterranean Tilapia? Holy smokes. I feel like a totally accomplished cook.
I haven't done too well with my Yotam Ottolenghi month of cooking but basically because we've eaten a freezer meal essentially every night during the week, I have however made his crusted pumpkin wedges with dill sour cream. They were okay. I think they would have tasted better but I overcooked the Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. Such is life.
Anyway, moral of this blog post is: I think I'm becoming a food snob. Just kidding. The moral is go out and try something new!
