This week I'm thankful for the energy to cook!
I'm also thankful that I've been blessed with creativity in the kitchen. I might not be an expert chef, but I can look at a skillet full of Jambalaya and know that adding a can of corn would be a cheap ($0.30 per can) way to stretch the meal.
I'm thankful for one pot cooking. I'd be lost without my skillet!
I'm thankful for a husband who's not too picky about what he considers a meal. While he loves meat & potatoes he'll eat pretty much whatever I put in front of him.
As I shared yesterday, I'm thankful for the energy to try a new recipe AND thankful that it turned out despite missing ingredients.
For those of you that aren't regulars to my blog, I've been battling a pretty hearty case of anemia. After two weeks of iron infusions I think I might be on my way to being health again. Finding the energy to do much of anything is a blessing these days!!
Don't worry guys, I'm not going to turn into a foodie, but I was so proud of myself I wanted to share Tuesday night's dinner with yall.
Lemon Pepper tilapia, (another $0.30 can*) green beans seasoned w/lemon pepper, and balsamic potatoes.
*Don't judge. The MIL bought 3 cases each of corn, green beans, and peas for us per the Mutant's request. I'm not even sure that she let us pay her back so technically they were free. A girls gotta be creative to use 108 cans of veggies before the expiration date.
I would like to note that I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I didn't have nutmeg, rosemary, or thyme so I just left those out. I also substitute a shallot for a green onion. They turned out great though!
