Rainy Night Dinner

All this rain in the northeast has been saturating in more ways than one. I spent some quality time with my ShopVac draining my basement this morning, "hosted" a Temple meeting, and at one point had 5 kids in the house playing at once. So although I was out of fresh vegetables I was determined to make a good dinner without leaving the house to go food shopping. We had friends join us which gave me increased motivation.

Here's what was in my bowl tonight:

4 oz tilapia
6 oz spinach
3 oz lima beans
3 oz rice
1 T Smart Balance Light
1 T tartar sauce

To be honest, I should have had another 6 oz of vegetables too. If it had occurred to me earlier, I would have added grape tomatoes to my bowl

To prepare, I did the following, half hour before we sat down to eat:

Poured skim milk over frozen Tilapia (thanks, Costco) in a baking pan. Sprinkled each filet with paprika, dried dill, and oat bran. Baked at 400 degrees until cooked (probably 15 minutes - a toaster oven works great for this).

Prepared Trader Joe's Wild Mushroom rice in the microwave.

Heated frozen lima beans in microwave.

Heated frozen chopped spinach in microwave.

Nothing fresh about this dinner but it was quick, nutritious, delicious, *and* I have leftovers for tomorrow.

What did you have tonight?


  1. Glenn made a "lasagna" of sorts with whole wheat pasta, ground beef (or maybe it's turkey)mushrooms, peas, tomatoes and mozzarella on top.

    I added parmesan on top because I LOVE cheese. It's good! I absolutely hate to cook and he's pretty good at it so it works out.

  2. Mmmm... cheese. That sounds delicious. I'd like to try it with rice.
