Giving Thanks

My dear sweet friend Aimee is spending her Thanksgiving in the hospital. Her darling husband M has been hospitalized for what they think is an issue with his colon. Although he is appearing to get better, they will not make it home for Thanksgiving. We are raising money to order them a full meal from a local cafe, so they can have a traditional dinner even in the hospital.

Here's the link if you'd like to donate.

Chili rubbed Tilapia

I like tilapia because it's not a fishy fish, you know, like salmon. In fact, when seasoned and cooked right, you can't tell it's fish. So tonight I made this and some pasta.

For the pasta I used regular spaghetti noodles but added a bit of butter and garlic salt to give it just a bit of flavor.

It was excellent! K liked it because he likes things with lots of flavor so the chili was a win for him. And the asparagus was a great side.

I cheat when I cook

I have been sick the last couple of days, so cooking has been put on hold since Keith had plenty of leftovers to eat.

Tonight I made some chicken breasts with a Greek dry season rub. I love this rub b/c it takes 30 seconds to put it on the chicken and throw it in a pan and cook. Make with some asparagus(or your fav veggie) and some rice or pasta and you have a quick and easy meal! Less than 10 minutes.

Menu for the week

Sundays I like to sit down and figure out our menu for the week. It helps us keep on track and figure our grocery budget as well. So here's the plan

Monday - Pot Roast with carrots and potatoes. Probably biscuits too.
Tuesday - Chicken Papkrish with rice
Wednesday - Spaghetti with meatballs
Thursday - Orange Soy Glaze Porkchops
Friday - Santa Fe Stew with chiles

Sounds like a yummy week!
