Okay, first things first. I told you I'd follow up with you on the Dream Dinners Pork Chops. Well, I am here to tell you, they were a success! So tasty! They were quick and easy to make, they were flavorful, and they were good as a left over lunch! They came with a bag of veggies to steam. The steaming was easy and perfect. I have no regrets. Dream Dinners y'all. Dream dinners.
Now, on to this week's meal. PH and I were hit by an epidemic and so unpacking has gone much slower than I have wanted it to. However, we have gotten back all the food we had stored at my parent's house. We put all of our freezer food storage in their freezer until ours was plugged back in and cold (and didn't smell bad anymore. Why do they smell bad? Nothing is in there!) I digress. We had all of our freezer food back, and we were ready to get cooking, except we're still pretty exhausted, and now sick. So I wanted something quick and simple.
One thing that I love about the age we live in is all the modern conveniences at our disposal that allow us to eat healthy, and make cooking easier!
Exhibit A is the tortilla crust tilapia that we bought from Costco. It comes pre-breaded and once the oven is pre-heated you put your pan of fish in for 10-13 minutes and bam! You have delicious, flaky tilapia fish, ready to be devoured!
Exhibit B is our rice cooker! It is so amazingly convenient. Just follow the directions for how much water to rice ratio your rice bag requires. Throw it into the rice cooker and turn it on! This rice cooker is great because it comes with a little steamer tray. So we threw some frozen veggies on top. The rice will tell you when it is ready. It always comes out perfect.
That is really it for this Tilapia and Rice meal! Tilapia in the oven, rice in the rice cooker. Start the rice cooker first because it takes longer. When the timer on the rice says there are about 15 minutes left throw your fish in the oven.
It is healthy and delicious. So go try it out, and tell me if you don't end up loving that rice cooker!
