to create some healthier eating habits for me at least.
The wife is out of town for the week enjoying the benefit of one of the 3 college tuitions I'm paying. I have two kids at home this summer so tonight I attempted to create a healthier meal for us all. I've been on a fish kick lately so I picked up some Tilapia and rice from the grocery store on the way home.
Since I was grilling I decided I might as well grill a couple of things to let the kids have a choice so I also picked up some ground Turkey and made Turkey burgers. I didn't realize that the Tilapia was not that expensive considering the alternatives. Even the turkey seemed reasonable-or maybe it was because what I bought was on special as it was labeled as needing to be prepared today.
I fixed the Tilapia with several different spices to also give us a choice. I think I liked the Cajun spice the best but I tend to go for things a little spicer anyway.
I don't know if it's because I've starved the kids the past few days but they actually seemed to really enjoy the food and didn't hold back a lick. Could just be the appetitie of teenagers as well. I'll have to check out the dogs' dishes to make sure none of it shows up there. Maybe it will help to get them away from the fried foods for a day or two.
Anybody have any fish recipes they'd like to offer???
