Yesterday I found myself in a dilemma.
Since my arrival in Orlando for school, I have been making an extra effort to save money on groceries. In order to accomplish this, I’ve decided that a good strategy for success would be to plan one fantastic dinner recipe a week to satisfy my insatiable desire to constantly be creating dishes in the kitchen.
Last night, Will & I declared it a “Mexican night” and I set out to find our fantastic star of a recipe for the week.
I began to rummage through MamaPea’s extensive recipe collection and was intrigued by the sound of her vegan tacos. At first my mind was set, but then I wavered and thought that it would be wise of me to milk this opportunity by introducing fish into Will’s life (he’s never eaten enough fish to draw a conclusive opinion about it.)
“Fish tacos” were my next search query.
I found these:
but then found this:
I came across this and wanted to incorporate a mango salsa.
After literally an hour of intensive recipe searches, I decided that the only way to satisfy all of my specific cravings was to create a recipe of my own—and that’s exactly what I did.
Meet Mango-Avocado Salsa Tilapia Taco bowls.
Success . The blend of fruity and citrusy flavors was perfect for an end-of-summer Mexican themed meal. Not only did I enjoy the end result, but Will admitted that the tilapia was quite tasty. Double success
I’m going to have the recipe for this baby up later this afternoon so stay tuned!
This morning’s eats: Oats In A Jar!
1/2 cup oats, 1 Tablespoon chia seeds, 1 sliced banana, salt, Truvia, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract and blueberries (somewhere). Topped with a teaspoon of PB & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter.
Should I mention that I also managed to get Will to eat oats for breakfast?
A bit to think about: Do you ever have a difficult time deciding between recipes?
What’s your favorite Mexican dish?
