Have a peaceful weekend…

photo (2)   I saw this Lao Tzu quote while sitting in a dentist chair so I had plenty of time to contemplate it.  It reminds me to take a deep breath, keep putting one foot in front of the other, and have faith that it will all work out in the end.

This weekend I am going to attempt to make my own chocolate syrup and this amazing spaghetti squash for a Thai treat.  We also have pizza and a pool party and open house at the new daycare. What are you up to this weekend?

PS Here is a wonderful post inspired by the quote above.  I am a perfect example of number 4, and I have to constantly remind myself to do number 7.

Restaurant-Worthy Meal!

I had had three Tilapia filets in my freezer for a few months and this weekend I decided we were making them!

I am not what most people (including my husband) consider a cook but I gave this recipe a shot and it was seriously restaurant-worthy.  I followed the instructions and then the suggestions made by “TAYLOR” in the Most Helpful Positive Review section.

This is the internet working at it’s best.  It came out so well that my husband and I cleaned our plates.  I like fish pretty well but he is not a fan.  And my one-year-old daughter ate it!

One of my goals is to get 14 meals we truly love and this one’s going on the list!

Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture but I’m sure it wouldn’t have done it justice.  The picture above is from the recipe page (why is it so hard to take a good picture of food?).

I’m just proud of the fact that I cooked it in the first place.  Yum!
