January 10th, 2016 marks my first post! I can not believe I am the owner of a blog. I have been inspired by other blogs over the past three years and decided it was time for me to start my own journey. It is the night before school starts back up again and while in the motivated state my sister and I decided to try a new recipe.
I had a great start to my morning, I attended Harvest Vineyard (a local church) where the pastor seemed to talk directly to me. He made a great point about relationships and belonging. 1st Corinthians 12:12-27 states that we are all one in the body of Christ. Sometimes I feel like society forgets this. Pastor Josh made a valid point that when he is in a fight with his wife and he wins the argument they both lose. It is not about what team wins or loses because we are all playing on the same team. We should be encouraging others around us and not only thinking about ourselves. As second semester kicks off, I am going to remember this throughout my relationships with family, friends, and co-workers.
Okay back to the recipe that brought all of you to this post. 🙂
Fish and Wine Night
I like to wing the food that I cook and this recipe turned out to be the perfect combination. The base of the meal was created with Tilapia and a lemon wine dressing. If you are making this with the ingredients in your home be creative and don’t be afraid to swap a few. I am going to list the steps Megan and I took but feel free to use what you have in your kitchen.
Frozen or fresh Tilapia fish
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup white wine
2 cups brown rice
5 cherry tomatoes
3 sweet peppers
3 garlic cloves
5 cilantro leaves
1. In a large skillet, cook the fish in 2 T. of olive oil. Leave whole or cut into bite size squares
2. In a small sauce pan- combine the wine and lemon juice to a small boil
3. Add all vegetables to the fish and allow 15 minutes to cook into the fish
4. pour the lemon wine dressing over the fish- simmer for 10 minutes
5. Cook the rice on the stove or in the microwave and serve fish over rice
