back from church and i'm on it. i usually do pancakes or french toast or something indulgent on the weekends, but blogging has really kept my diet on the straight and narrow! i won't hold back though, i promise. so i made the usual, but i bought some wheat tortillas from yesterday's shopping trip for Sonny. fyi, fresh cilantro makes a REALLY big difference in your food. key word: FRESH.
i had an egg white omelette w/ salsa, turkey sausage, fruit, and oatmeal. since i have to blend my son's food, i have just been eating my oatmeal extra creamy as well. now i like it that way all the time! we eat a lot of eggs. instead of buying the 5 dozen pack (yes, for two people) every shopping trip, i have been buying my whites in the carton. the guilt from throwing out the yolk was haunting me.
a dear friend of mine was having a 1st birthday party for her son later, so i got dinner going before we left.
my tilapia marinade: couple sprigs of fresh dill weed (chopped), 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 1 packet of dry ranch dressing mix.
then i sprinkled it with some Tony Chachere's creole seasoning and fresh cracked black pepper and stuck it in the fridge.
by the time we got back, it was ready to go straight into the oven. remember that polenta from WF? i made some pan fried, creamy, cheesy polenta and fresh asparagus for the sides. we ended dinner with brownies and called it a night. don't worry, the polenta recipe is coming right up. about to wind down and get ready for the week!
