tilapia + fresh lemon

happy friday – and earth day!! my boy lupe was amazing last night. even played “i don’t want to care right now” twice! i didn’t mind – it’s my fave.

so, i’m trying to add more seafood into my diet so i can get more protein that’s lean. i tend to eat a lot of peanut butter, which is good for protein, but way too much fat (good fat, but i still need more of a balance in my diet).

so, the boy bought a huge package of frozen tilapia and we made this the other night.

i think i’ve said this before, but i think the simplest way i season fish on the fly is to add some squeezed lemon, lemon zest and some parsley. the boy also added some additional seasonings and spices, like red pepper flakes! what do you do? i want to make a yummy crust of some sort…

we peared it with sweet potato fries and roasted asparagus with balsamic vinaigrette (win!).

who else loves sweet potato fries? i think i really fell in love with them when i lived in birmingham. they are everywhere down there. the best i ever had was at flip burger boutique. they had an order of sweet potato fries drizzled with chocolate. heaven. they also had vegetarian burgers – and a nutella + burnt marshmellow milkshake (!!). so yummy. definitely miss that place.

what are your plans to do and eat this weekend? any plans for earth day? plant a tree, work on the garden? 🙂

i’ll definitely be doing garden stuff and working more on my compost! and i’m going camping tonight and we have an amazing camp-style breakfast planned for tomorrow! 🙂 then going to see my best friend at the rattlers game tomorrow – she’s one of their star cheerleaders! and i seriously can’t wait for easter menus!!

have a great friday.
