I have no pictures tonight, but I do have two awesome recipes to share- you’ll just have to use your imagination. I’m doing well sticking to the meal plan this week. I have even taken out the chicken for the crock pot tomorrow. But, do you think I’ll have time to do that, get the kids & myself ready and to school by 8:30? (I’m school nurse tomorrow) I’m not so sure about that.
Baked Flounder Fillets in Lemon-Soy Vinaigrette Recipe at Epicurious.com:
two 6-ounce flounder fillets
1 garlic clove
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Arrange fillets in a ceramic or glass baking dish just large enough to hold them in one layer. Mince garlic and in a small bowl combine with lemon juice, soy sauce, sugar, and salt. Whisk in oil until emulsified and pour vinaigrette over fish.
Bake fish in middle of oven until just cooked through and no longer translucent, 5 to 7 minutes.
Even though I turned off the oven and left the fish in there to “keep warm” and it totally overcooked itself to the point of being half the size it was going into the pan- the kids still loved it (except Jonathan that is) and ate it all up in a heartbeat. I served it with some delicious wild rice, simple & easy, the best for a school night!
Then for dessert and for after school snacks tomorrow I made Jen’s no bake cookies. SO GOOD! I’m sending you over there for the recipe- so easy and a hit with everyone. Despite their initial “what is THAT” reaction to the oats. So go & see Jen at Life, Love and Wine, tell her how much you love her cookies & tell her I sent ya’ her way.
Oh, did I mention Fishful Thinking is up & running again? They are looking for more ambassadors too. If you are interested, email me and I’ll send you in the right direction. I won a $50 gift card to Target last fall!
