2 Things I Don't Do

I don't eat fish and I don't cook. But...

this week, not only did I cook, I cooked fish! And since my steak tips and rice pilaf were a total fail, I will give you the fish recipe. It was pretty delish, and healthy. So here ya go:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

1lb of white fish, I used Sole after much deliberation at the fish counter. After all, I have never been.

Veggies. I used cherry tomatoes, red onion, hericots verts, squash and olives.

Mix veggies with a table spoon of olive oil, lemon juice, salt pepper and oregano.

Take two sheets of tin foil and spray top sheet with cooking spray.

Place fish fillet and and 1/3 of veggie mixture on top of tin foil and fold short ends first, then long ends to seal the packet.

Repeat with left over fish and veggies.

Place fish packets directly on oven rack.

Cook for 20 minutes and enjoy over a bed of quinoa.

Just purchased these 'Chanel-esque' flats from 'The Gap'

But for a buttload less than the real thing :)

Happy Girl.

So Proud

Not of the almost 500 wins, but of the character of my Pops.

Lowcountry fixture Basirico standing on verge of 500

He couldn't lead by a better example, and I am so proud to call him 'Dad'.

A Year in Pictures

Sometimes your favorites aren't the perfect smiley ones.

And sometimes they are.

Happy New Year!

It's 2011 friends! The hubs and I went to a romantic dinner and then rushed home with 10 minutes to spare so we could get in our pj's and jump on the couch to ring in the New Year.

Okay, maybe it was just me who jumped on the couch because I was so excited I made it to midnight without falling asleep. It's been two years since I have seen the ball drop. The hubs made a 10pm dinner reservation to increase my chances of staying up this year.
It worked!

My New Year's resolution is to tell the time to anyone who asks. In order to do this, I had to buy a new watch. Thanks Mom and Dad to for the funds.

Do you see a problem here? I really can reason any purchase.

Also, to cook more! Actually, let me rephrase that, 'to cook!, something, anything at all!', not sure where the 'more' came in. I know the hubs is crossing is fingers on this one....

May 2011 be our best year yet!!
