Kicking off the New Year with Simple Food

A few days before 2012, my five year old asked me what a New Years Resolution is. In my head, I wanted to answer, “It is when Mommy and Daddy throw out all the junk food and try to lose a few pounds.” However, my heart had a different answer. I told her, “It is a new start, a new year, and people make promises to themselves to make themselves and their world better.”
Elise looks at me and says, “My resolution is to play more and see a rainbow.” Simple. So my resolution this year is to make it simple. Food. Parenthood. Life.
Starting with simple food. This kid friendly, simple dinner will also make your food budget smile.
Tilapia Tacos
6 Tilapia Filets
1 clove of garlic chopped
Olive Oil
1 tsp of grated lime rind
1/2 cup of salsa verde
1 avocado chopped
1/2 cup of broccoli slaw
12 corn tortillas
  1. Round pan with olive oil and throw in garlic.
  2. Cut Tilapia filets into strips.
  3. Add grated lime rind
  4. Saute fish until white, usually 5-7 minutes and fish should flake easy
  5. Add salsa verde to fish and with spatula chop into smaller pieces. Cook on low for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Put fish into corn tortillas and top with chopped avocado and slaw.
