Lunch today was eaten in a hurry and without lettuce, so I guess it was just Shrimp Paella, minus the salad. Oops. It was pretty tasty, even though I had to eat my lunch at 2pm (I was so hungry by then, but my day was busy!) in approximately 30 seconds. Despite eating lunch on the later end, I was STARVING by the end of the day, so when I came home I had some pecans and Mott's Summer Strawberry Applesauce before cooking dinner.
Dinner tonight was Baked Fish Packets with Chinese Parsley Paste. I mixed veggies and cod, wrapped them in tin foil and baked for 15-ish minutes. I didn't have and radishes, and I don't like radishes (so I didn't want to buy any at the grocery store this week), so I used red onion instead. While the mixture baked, I made the Parsley Paste. Problem #1: I don't own a blender - so I just chopped up everything very finely and mixed it. Overall, this recipe was... somewhat boring, I suppose. Definitely not bad, had a nice enough flavor from the parsley paste... but nothing to rave about.
Salsa-Shrimp Tacos. I used fresh green peppers instead of frozen, since I had some. I will have to let you know how this recipe turns out - it's so simple! Makes me think it'll also be nothing special, but we'll find out tomorrow. I snapped a picture of just the filling, since I probably won't remember to take one of the taco put together at lunch tomorrow:
After my less than thrilling dinner, I'm definitely still hungry - what's that about?!? I'm craving TCBY, or some sort of ice cream. TCBY is too far away to run out for tonight - and probably closed 2 minutes ago. There's a chance I'll cave and have a Cookout Milkshake, but I'm trying to talk myself out of that since I had one on Saturday! I might make myself some s'mores: I have chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and graham crackers in the pantry. Or, I could just have a cup of hot chocolate to ease the sugar craving. What are your favorite (healthy-ish) snacks when you are craving something sweet?
