Delicious meal to try

Here's a quick and easy, yet delicious meal to try.

Baked Tilapia and roasted veggies. I put asparagus, a few mushrooms and a thinly sliced potato on a baking sheet (you can roast all kinds of veggies). Sprinkled on some seasonings (garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper) and coated them in olive oil. Bake at 400 for a about 25 minutes. Put some tilapia in between 2 sheets of tinfoil on a baking sheet and sprinkle with same seasonings and add some lemon juice, bread crumbs and a little butter. Tightly seal the foil so that it will kind of steam the fish. Put it in the last 10 minutes of the veggie baking time.

Voila! A delicious, quick and easy, and healthy meal!

We had a great Sunday. I had a close friend from Washington visiting, Stephanie. She met us at church, we hung out during the 2nd service while Jeremy was with the kids and then we spent a long lunch with her. It was such a sweet time. I just love her so much! We forgot to take any pictures though! Then, we headed over to our friends for the Superbowl. What a great time we had! I'm so glad for all of the lifelong Saints fans, that they won! So amazing!

I'm excited for this coming week. I get to see another friend on Tuesday that I haven't seen in so long! Will be great to talk with her!

We did our taxes the other night and we will be getting enough back to pay off all of mine and Adeline's medical bills from her birth and some to save. This is such an answer to prayer! I am so grateful to God for making a way to pay all of this off so it is not hanging over our heads anymore. We can move forward with saving and giving more now! And, we have one last bill that is a bit high to pay off for Jeremy so we will be able to make bigger dents in it now. Not sure if everyone wanted to know our medical bill details...haha...but I don't mind sharing!

I'm back! I hope to be consistent this time around!

Today has been a great day! Working from home....and thinking about Adeline's dedication. Trying to plan a good restaurant to go to and I need to see if the dress Jeremy's Mom made for her will fit. If not, we may need to go shopping! Not sure where I'll find white dresses....and I'd like some pretty tights and booties and a bow of course to go with it!

I'm still recovering from being so sick last week. But, I'm much better and able to get everything done that I need to. I keep thinking,"How can I get my immune system stronger so I don't EVER get sick like that again?" Haha! I do want to be healthier, though! I'm always on a quest to find healthy things to cook and buy for us. But, I war with the overwhelming desires that come for dessert and yummy quick snacks too! Slowly but surely we make steps in the right direction. Even when we veer off the course, we don't get on a new course completely. We come back! That's good at least! :)

Well, bye for now!

Today's dinner

Today's dinner is Yummy broiled Salmon, butternut squash and sauteed spinach. It's not always so glamerous, but sometimes the easy and quick meals can be gourmet too! I'm also trying to incorporate fish back into our diets. We used to have it a few times a week and I stopped cooking it for some reason. SO, here's to the healthy fats and DHA again!
