So - first things first. I weighed in. Annnnd - I'm down a pound. I guess the exercise and extra walking saves me from days of muchie attacks.
Anyway - I'm really excited. And happy. And all good things. YAY! That brings me to about 54 pounds gone total.
I made the most delicious lunch today. I have to eat up as many of these veggies as I can. I forgot I'm going out to dinner tonight. More on that later.
Cornmeal Encrusted Tilapia over Mixed Greens
For the crust:
1/4 cup of cornmeal
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tbsp Ken's Light Sweet Vidalia Onion Dressing
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
2 cups of spring mix + baby spinach
1 tbsp shredded carrot
1 tsp chopped bell pepper
juice of 1/2 a lemon
I doused the tilapia in the dressing then in the cornmeal mix.
Placed in a greased baking dish and spray with more cooking spray.
Bake for 25 min at 375 (if filet is frozen - 10-12 if fish is fresh)
I served it over greens with a potato and steamed broccoli on the side. Oh - and some light sour cream too.
It was really, really good. The dressing made the fish slightly sweet - and the cayenne gave it a little heat. I'm very impressed with myself right about now.
Just a few more hours and then I'm headed out to dinner with a bunch of friends/colleagues. Philip Marie has invited us to dinner to see their event space.
I'll be back - with as many pictures as I can manage.
Have a great afternoon!
