Blood Orange Tilapia

Featured

I made Tilapia fish with a butter Moro blood orange sauce.
It was a very simple meal cook the fish in butter squeezing the blood oranges over the fish.
Once the fish is out if the pan squeeze more oranges and put the pulp in the pan with the butter and fish juice.

Note: Do not put a juicy orange on your computer. (orange in color or blood . . . its’ a moro as there are several types of blood oranges) I just did this to show the color.

We had it over stuffing with side of Asia cabbage salad mix.

Fritatta Or Crustless Quiche

I’ve been into writing (working on my novels) so I haven’t been cooking as much.

I made a crustless quiche (Fritatta) yesterday . . . It’s like omelet meets pie.
I added mushroom and green pepper.
I melted cheese on top.
I seasoned with chives, pepper, and season salt.
I made it in a slow cooker and it just took a few hours.
I made scalloped potatoes.

It would have been awesome with salsa and sour cream and toast.

It was fluffy and flavorful.

Comfort food: grilled cheese and tomato soup

I made grilled cheese and tomato soup the other day. It was always a comfort food and something I remember as a kid.

I love the many combinations with grilled cheese.

There are so many combination s

  • Munster
  • Honey mustard
  • Grilled chicken
  • Grilled onions

Or

  • Swiss or Mozzarella
  • Roast beef
  • Mushrooms

The combo we had

  • American cheese
  • Bread n butter pickles
  • Bacon

I added rice and bacon and golden fish crackers to my tomato soup.

Its just yummy comfort I had from my childhood.

One of my favorites: Tacos

For my brother’s birthday (turtle), I made him homemade tacos.I love a good taco bar.

  • Soft tortillas
  • Crunch corn tortillas
  • Season ground beef
  • Salsa
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped black olives
  • Shredded cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Turtle had his sliced pickle jalapeƱos

Sometimes I add rice, sometimes beans.

This was turtle’s taco.

Its fun to make you’re own.

I sometimes cut the tortillas and make mini tacos.

It was a really good taco. I think everyone enjoyed it.

Rice and what works

I love a good rice dish. . .

It can be in a pudding or in a bake.

You can make rice in an oven, stove, or microwave. There is long grain, short grain, and even in a bag, instant rice.

It is versatile: there are so many different things you can do with rice.

You can make in minutes and just add herbs and butter.

I love sushi: fish and sticky rice. . . yum.

You can add gravy or sauce to it.

Yesterday when I slow cooked the BBQ ribs that fell off the bone. I took the render fat and extra BBQ sauce and use it as part of the liquid to make the rice so it had the BBQ rib flavor. (It was so good.)

Turtle even add a ginger hot sauce to it.

You can even add rice into stews and soups.

You can add fruit and nuts with it.

The suggestions are limitless: go bold, or comfortable.

Note: I was use a fork to light stir the rice as I feel it makes it fluffier.
