fast dinner but very yummy

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

I didn't have a lot of time for cooking today so tossed something together quick.
Surprise you can make a yummy meal in less than 15 min.
the meat is tilapia sautéed in a little butter and topped with mango salsa
I steamed the baby carrots and broccoli (seasoned with no-salt seasoning and lemon)
the rice is minute rice ( I know not best choice but I limited my amount to 1/2 cup)
The tomatoes and cucumber have a very light drizzle of raspberries vinaigrette
desert (not shown) 1/2 cup strawberry yogurt ice cream
Family was very happy with the meal and so am I.

Now the reason I had no time to cook was spent all morning at Dr.'s office with DH
Results of lab work was very good. Dr said cholesterol levels were excellent then looked at me and said keep up the good work.
MRI showed a tear in the knee that he wants checked by a bone & joint Dr. so will go Aug 5th for that. Until then DH is to use walker or cane. So more waiting on him and making him stay off his feet. UGH!!!

After getting out of the Dr's office 15 min before the tire place closed for lunch, got there just in time to get the air tank (for MIL's car that has flat tire) and rush home. Got her tire pumped up and made a fast PBJ (out of sandwich meat after DH made his sandwich first) to eat in car while following her back to town. She made it safe even though tire was getting very low again. Run grabbed some groceries and finished just in time to follow her back home.

Got groceries put away, paid neighbor for cutting grass, and took MIL's B/P.
Whew, almost a whole day gone and now you know why I didn't have a lot of time today.

Oh forgot to mention the figs I put up yesterday turned out very good but have to watch it they are loaded with sugar. I don't eat many, love to give them as Christmas presents.
Here is a pic. of them on the stove bubbling away.
