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!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
