A Delicious Dinner

Dinner last night:

The menu:

  • Tilapia with capers, onions, olive oil, chili pepper, white wine, sea salt, & cracked black pepper
  • Stir fried broccoli with olive oil & lemon
  • Quinoa with black bean & corn salad mixed in

I’m very fortunate to have a husband that it such a good cook – it was so delicious!

  1. I am the first to admit that I do not eat as well as I should. That said, I’m trying to do better and find healthy foods that I enjoy. This, for example? Looks CRAZY delicious!

  2. Girl, you got me over here drooling! Can I say”Yum!” That dish looks so good. I have to try it. It’s something about food that just seems to taste better when guy’s cook it. I mean, don’t get me wrong, us ladies can throw down, but it’s just something about a beautiful dish created by a man, especially the one’s you love, that just taste and look fabulous. This is a delicious healthy meal, I know it was divine. I would love the recipe (measurements) to this dish.

    Yes ,like you, I miss Domino Magazine too. Hope your having a lovely day! Wishing you a lovely week too!
