It's been a rough week guys. It's been the kind of week where things are hard and you are tired and sad and the last thing you want to do is make dinner. Heck, the last thing you have time to do is make dinner.
When I have those weeks, they make me sad, because I don't like rough weeks, and I do like to cook.
That was this week and I felt at a loss as to what to make you for dinner, you, our loyal readers. Enter, the mango salsa.
I was at the grocery store the other night to pick up some items for a brief California trip PH and I took to celebrate his mom's birthday, as well as one nephew's birthday, and one sister's in law birthday. While I was there I saw this mango salsa by Sabra. I love mango salsa. I should force my mom to make me some in her fancy new blender.
Well, when I saw the salsa the light bulb over my head turned on and I decided it was a fish tacos kind of night!
Fish tacos are really so fast and easy. It doesn't take long to cook the fish, and it tastes so fresh, who need's Rubio's when you can just make it at home?
One struggle I always have with PH and I is that it is hard to get ratios right when I am only cooking for two. Buy tilapia that is individually frozen, that makes the fish portions easy. However, it's the cabbage, yogurt, and onion that cause me trouble. Fortunately the grocery store by our house sells half a head of cabbage. It is twenty cents more than a full head, I guess they need to pay the people that went to the trouble to slice it in half for me. It's worth it though because cabbage isn't really something I use a ton, so it all ends up going bad.
I also just bought a small single serving of Fage greek yogurt for the white sauce. That way there would only be enough for the two of us.
When making fish tacos it really works best to have a husband who will chop up the veggies and make the white sauce for you. However, they will still taste good if you don't have that thing, and you will still be happy to be eating them.
So, doesn't it feel like a fish tacos kind of night?
