I chose the Italian fries with herbs and romano cheese. I used a mix of parmesan and romano cheese. My little one loves these potatoes, so I made them just for him. The main entree was tilapia filets, dredged in just a little bit of seasoned flour, then sauteed in a tablespoon of oil, then finished off in the oven. It's my system to keep the house from smelling of smoke from fried fish. Rounded out the meal with some steamed veggies. Simple but good.
I also prepared some striped Pangasius, which is quite similar to tilapia in taste and texture. I wanted to try it
because the fish lady at the supermarket highly recommended it. I had some hesitation about it because I understand that it's farm raised in Asia, like tilapia. My concern stems from the way many of those fish farms raise fish.... not like they would be in an American fish farm setting. There's always the fear of lax quality controls. But it is cheaper compared to fish such as salmon. I just don't care for the taste of salmon, though I've tried to 'like' it. I can't get past the very strong fishy smell and taste. But tilapia and pangasius are so sweet and mild....and inexpensive.....
Spaghetti and marinara sauce with Italian sausage and ciabatta bread is on the menu for tomorrow. I don't think I'll be posting about that though. Hopefully my next post can be about a sewing or knitting project. I'm ever hopeful.
