Sole Florentine…but I used tilapia

I had a man friend come visit me this weekend from West Point, and I thought I’d cook some fish because I know he doesn’t get enough seafood there. I found this recipe on YumSugar. I couldn’t find sole at Gristedes, so I bought tilapia instead. I also served it with a side of roasted potatoes with garlic and olive oil (I’m not good at potatoes), and not only was the plate wonderfully colorful, but it was also quite tasty. And, once again, I didn’t have time to photograph my meal or the process, but here’s a picture of me in my awesome apron!

that's right. i'm a sexy and fabulously strong woman. don't mess.

I will post my grocery list later. I figured this recipe would be much more interesting than my groceries this week. Still staying under budget though!

This Week’s Groceries

It’s becoming stew/soup season, so I think I’m going to make an Irish stew that I found on Recipezaar after being inspired by the “intermediate” recipe on YumSugar. I decided not to post my fish recipe from last week because not only did it fail, but I’m just too busy. It also wasn’t that difficult and was remarkably similar to the other one I made. So anyway, here’s my list (groceries not from U.O. in italics):

eggplant
local collards
red leaf lettuce
spinach
carrots
garnet yams
russet potato
kiwi
bananas
navel oranges
bartlett pears
golden delicious apples
milk
eggs
sour cream
onions
chicken broth (though I guess I should’ve gotten beef?)
lamb neck
pasta
bacon
shredded cheddar

Urban Organic ($26.98) + other groceries ($25.19) = $52.17
total left in budget = $20.39 (bought lunch on Monday)

Recipe: Tilapia with Cherry Tomatoes and Arugula

I don’t cook fish very often, but this week I felt motivated. Tilapia seemed easy enough. Also, I really like YumSugar, part of the greater Sugar network, and I’ve never tried one of their recipes. I was surprised at how simple it was. It took me maybe 10 minutes to prepare and cook. 10 minutes. That’s an episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

lemon juice, arugula, grape tomatoes, tilapia. not pictured: butter. salt. pepper. whatever.
