I'm getting hungry just looking at it.
It's so easy, you should make it.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Take the almonds, lemon pepper, dill & toss them
in a little food processor, pulse until it looks like thick powder.
Line a cookie sheet with foil, spray with a little olive oil.
(this is just for easy clean up)
Spray 2 Tilapia filets lightly with olive olive oil &
place on the foil. Sprinkle generously with almond
mixture, pressing it on until coated, then flip
over and do the same to the other side.
Surround the fish with all your cut up veggies,
give the whole pan a light spray of olive oil then
season with whatever you would like.
My favorite seasoning is Trader Joe's 21 Season
Salute, or Mrs. Dash, preferable something with no
sodium, the fish should be plenty salty from the
Next drizzle a little Balsamic Glaze over the top of
the veggies. If you don't have this you could try
lemon juice or just leave them dry.
Bake in the oven, uncovered about 10-15min
or fish flakes easily with a fork.
Plate all the food, top veggies with fresh
garden tomatoes, a some basil & a little
more balsamic glaze.
2 Tilapia Filets
(I used frozen & thawed them under running water)
1/4 c. Almonds
1.5 tsp Lemon Pepper
1 tsp Dill
1 Onion cut into big round thick slices

In one week we will be heading out for a trip to Sacramento, JUST THE TWO OF US.
Yes, that's right, no kids.
Although I'm a little sad they can't join us, I'm way more excited to spend 3 days with John.
I haven't spent more then 1 night away from the kids EVER, as in I have seen them every single day of their lives.
I'm proud of that, but also ready for a break.
Anyhow, we are flying out on Friday & going to a little town called Auburn where we will spend the next 3 days exploring wine country, hiking & most importantly, seeing our beautiful niece Meaghan get married!
We will get to spend some great quality time with our wonderful family.
I couldn't be more excited!
I'm so glad we won't miss Meaghan's wedding & I think it will be really good for us.
I know I'm going to miss the kids like crazy. I'm trying not to worry about that aspect. I know they will be having a great time without us. They are gearing up for a beach trip with my Mom & Auntie Jessica, so they probably won't even have a chance to miss us.
I love that I'm leaving them in good hands, that makes it not just easier to do something like this, but possible. We are so lucky to have such a great, loving, supportive family in every direction we turn. We are all so very blessed.
One week, bring it, lets do this!!
Actually, on second thought, I love having things to look forward to, so in many ways I have already gotten a lot out of this trip.
So maybe, rather then rushing to next weekend, I will take this week slow & just soak in this time I have with my kids & the anticipation for things to come...
