So guess what? I actually cooked tonight! But I’m not doing at again until September… because of this:
No ma’am. It was 106 degrees today (really). So as soon as I turned the oven on, the house got ridiculously hot. Plus Isla prefers to be held ALL THE TIME so I cooked while she screamed. A little stressful.
But, BUT- I did make a good recipe. I’m trying to add more fish to our diet and ran across a delicious sounding recipe on Pinterest for parmesan-crusted tilapia (recipe here). It’s easy: You bake the tilapia for a few minutes, then smear with a paste of butter (I used 2 Tbs instead of 4), parmesan, mayo and spices and bake for a few more minutes.
I ended up having to broil the fish for a bit to get the top to brown. It was actually really good! I loved the crunchy cheese topping. Will definitely be making this one again- Brian liked it, too.
On the side: Brown basmati rice and green beans with tomatoes (inspired by Erin’s recipe from last night).
I took Jack to school this morning while my mom watched Isla. My mom has been such a HUGE help with Jack and the baby. She’s constantly making our beds, filling our fridge, doing laundry, putting Jack down for naps, holding Isla so I can go to the bathroom. We would all be in our PJ’s and our house would be a serious Hoarders contender were she not around. Anyway, she helped me give Isla a bath this morning… and by “helped” I mean she bathed while I snapped pictures:
Look at that sweet face!! Here’s a comparison pic of Jack at the same age, also post bath… they have the same little nose and chin dimple:
Catch you guys tomorrow!
