blue cheese tilapia

I hate to do this but I have to give my ex credit for this super quick and simple dish…

Well it turns out this is his sister’s meal which he passed on to me and now I enjoy it when I’m hankering for some fish this is what I throw together…

The ingredients….

  • tilapia fillets
  • blue cheese
  • any extra cheese you choose

star of the show

fishy fishy

These were some fillets I’ve had stashed in my freezer for who knows how long but they weren’t freezer burnt and defrosted fine…

Spray your dish down with non-stick cooking spray, pop in the fish and then coat with the dressing…

make sure to cover the fillets well, the dressing with cook down a bit in the oven…

Put into a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes…

and enjoy a glass of this…

I don’t own a wine glass so I old school it and just put it in a regular glass…

left half has gorgonzola cheese on it.

And then eat as is or do like I do and pop it on some buns for a nommy fish sandwich!

lighting sucks, hate my little camera sometimes

the blue cheese dressing keeps the fish so moist and it just flavors everything in a way that can’t be beat…

i’m telling you, you’ll love it…

i don’t even like blue cheese and this is one of my fav fall back dishes when I’m feeling lazy….

Sunday Weigh In – 4

Hi guys….

No lie, I expected that scale to hate me today… I’m pmsing like a maniac and its been showing in my food choices… plus I had a bunch of coffe this week which always leads me to retain water… and though my step count was up according to the fitbit… I still haven’t been doing any structured exercise…

So I stepped on this morning just praying for no weight gain – which, let me just say needs to be a topic of discussion later this week because that is definately the wrong state of mind…

And imagine my disbelief when the scale registered 244 – down 1 lb…

welllllll then…. I re-zeroed the scaled and did it again… same result…

So I will take it…

The goal for this week… get to the gym… and make sure to watch calories because the super bowl is next sunday and well that just will be TROUBLE!

celebrating 95 years

so the bad news is I didn’t get a post up yesterday

The good news is I have blog posts material for the next few days even if I do nothing with my life over the next 48 hrs lol

Yesterday I spent my afternoon with my mom, step dad and this amazing woman

Yesterday my grandmother who I refer to as Maya, turned 95 years old… 95!!!!! she still lives independently and is such an amazing woman that I can’t even begin to say how proud I am to be her granddaughter…

She has taken on cancer and won, she currently battles macular degeneration and is not giving into that either…

I will admit I did not make her a cake, as at 95 I thought she deserved something that would actually be good lol…

So I bought her one from the local grocery store… chocolate cake with whip cream icing…

She had said that all she wanted for this birthday was to have her family with her and to eat cake and ice cream, so that’s exactly what we did… and she couldn’t have been happier…

Ā did you notice her repping the steelers even at 95??? heck yeah that’s my grandma!

and no help needed with the candles… she had that down good… except she forgot to make a wish and so we had to relight them… lol… hey she’s 95, she’s allowed one goof up šŸ˜‰

happy birthday maya…. you are one amazing woman…

Q of the Day: Who is one of your biggest role models?

Nothing fun

Sorry for the lack of a good post today… just not much to talk about…

I forgot to take my morning migraine pill this morning and now my face feels like its going to explode into 15 gagillion tiny pieces…

I’ve been increadibly productive though! I’m applying for summer residencies starting next week and trying to get all my ducks in a row while setting up additional meetings for mock interviews, meetings with execs from the community to pick their brains and lots of other things…

Plus cranking out some work for the boss on our projects…

I found out I’ll be going to Massachuettes in April almost like a send off from my research job here to finally kick off some implementation of the work i’ve beenĀ a part of for 3 years… the trip is during finals though yikes…

anywho… I’m looking forward to going to back cracker (my shoulder is back out of place again) and going to home relax… the boy is supposed to be going out tonight and i might get some quiet time… yay…

me and the babies….

yeaaaaah sounds like a great night to me šŸ™‚ seriously… it does šŸ™‚

Here ducky ducky

Hi

that’s my new salt and pepper shakers/holder…. seriously… I was looking for a set because I don’t own any which apparently is a sin in the boy’s eyes and he shot down all of my choices and then when this came up on Amazon I jokingly showed it to him… and of course… he explains… “you HAVE to get that”

seriously

So now mister ducky is sitting on the counter craddling salt and pepper like they are two big bottles of booze…

After setting up the duck master of condiments I whipped up some sketti…

Sauce was just red onions and crumbled up burger from other night…

Tossed it with some angel hair pasta and some GOUDA šŸ™‚ love me my gouda and was a nice happy camper….

I wanna go home and eat left overs now… yum…

I’m in class til 7:30 tonight so those leftovers will get nommed up tonight when i roll myself in through the door…

and this guy will be there to greet me

He quacks me up…….. šŸ™‚

Steve went shopping

And if I had to give him a grade I’ll give him a C+….

Monday night we decided that it was just too late to get to the store so he insisted that he had the capability to get the shopping list done yesterday after work.Ā  I quizzed him on some of the items and though I was still worried I figured he would be ok…

The main thing I wanted was to refill the empty yogurt shelf… he was given specific instructions to get only banana flavored, coffee flavored or apple flavored yogurt for me…

He shows up with a bag full of strawberry and strawberry cheesecake flavors with the excuse “I got you the good kind” aka breyersĀ low fat… he clearly has not picked up on the whole you buy what’s on sale trend I go by…

He also brought home a pound of cooked ham for sandwiches – he then proceeded to eat two ham and cheese sandwiches before the groceries were even put away… and boasted that he got everything on the list but the heavy cream which they were out of he “even asked the ‘cute’ grocery clerk” and she told him that he “was such a good boyfriend to be doing the grocery shopping”…

I mean COME ON people lol…

Dinner was whipped together on the fly… after his 2 sandwiches the boy settled for a big bowl of soup… I on the other hand had no idea what to eat…

Then my choice was made for me…

While getting some of these going for salads this week:

I dropped on and it cracked… so breakfast for dinner it was…

1 egg, red onion, salsa and a litttttleĀ bit of colby jack cheese….

pop it on a tortilla with some french onion laughing cow cheese cuz um there is no such thing as too much cheese

roll that puppy up and chow down… how yummo is that?

me and my parents used to have these every Sunday for brunch with someĀ perogies… love it…

Early to bed and then somehow this morning I forgot to put on makeup…. how in the world does that happen so I stopped and picked up some of my favĀ mascarra and some new eye shadow so I wasn’t totally face naked…

LASH BLAST BABY

Revlon color stay eye shadow - nude element

the eye shadow is totally awesome…

Now to get some work done… attend some school meetings and a couple classes and beat the gosh darn snow home yet again…

Question of the Day: What makeup can you just not live without????

What is your favorite breakfast – for – dinner meal????
