I finally got around to making myself a healthy (mostly) meal yesterday. And it was delicious.
Now, while I do really like to cook, and some days I love taking hours to make the perfect dinner, I’m not really much of a “take hours in the kitchen to make one meal” on an everyday basis sort of person. I’m kind of impatient.
I’m also not a very precise cook. I sort of just throw things in and hope it tastes good. Which is why most of the meals I cook are pretty simple, and the ingredients always vary. But this means that I can share the basics with you, and you can adjust the recipes to your liking. Much easier than having to follow a recipe to the tee. Which I never do as it is.
The last thing is that I’m not really afraid of butter. I’m definitely not a non-fat cook. I mean, I don’t overdose on fats, but… in moderation, butter’s not bad for you. So long as you don’t eat it by the pat or drink it when it’s melted.
Here’s what I made last night. Feel free to modify the recipes, add your own stuff, spice it up, remove things… whatever you want to do. Because that’s sort of what I do. All the time.
Dish #1: Tilapia with lemon, butter, and chives.
Dish #2: Greek Salad. With a few modifications.
Well, I was going to make this a longer post, but now I’m hungry.
So I’m gonna go eat.
I… may not have had enough sleep last night.
