Lazy, Bum.

I'm having way too many lazy moments. In fact, for this meal I opened the fridge and almost started crying because I wanted to go to sleep. But I was hungry, as I usually am by the time I get home from work. With no prior planning, I eyeballed a Marie Callender Turkey Pot Pie. I absolutely did not want that. Nor did I want to wait 45 minutes for it to cook in the oven.

Ok game on. What do I have? I had some tilapia and this little Fresh Takes deal that I picked up on my last trip to the grocery store.

I didn't know how this was going to end up, but it was worth a shot. So I preheated the oven to 375 and threw a bag of long grain and wild rice in the rice cooker. Being that I was less than excited to cook in the first place, I had no expectations of this dish lol.

I decided to make it "Special Extra" as the package suggested and dipped the fish in egg before I put it in the bread/cheese mix. First let me tell you that this particular one is very fragrant. I got excited when I got a whiff! 

I followed the package directions for fish. This was very easy. My rice was cooking away and I decided I needed a veggie. Frozen green beans it is! Then I opened the cabinet and eyeballed a can of field peas and snaps. WIN! I think this may have been one of the easiest meals I have ever cooked!

The fish before going in the oven
You smell this cooking the whole time. My mouth watered in anticipation. By the time the fish came out of the oven, the green beans and peas were done. As I started plating food, the rice cooker popped to "warm." This meal seriously took about 45 minutes with no prior prep or planning.
Fresh out of the oven
Easy, quick and very tasty! Works as a quick fix. I love that tilapia thaws so fast! I'm excited to try the different varieties of the Fresh Takes with other kinds of meat! The possibilities are endless! I hope you all have a great week!

Sending Chocolate Kisses,

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
