My mother hates cooking. But today, she was in rare form.
She made tilapia!
It was pretty good (Yes I eat fish. Although this may change, right now I do.). Really simple, just salt, pepper and onion powder. The cooked on medium heat for a 6 minutes total.
I made a salad.
Later I started preparing Christmas dinner. On the menu for tomorrow:
I always make that stuffing for Thanksgiving, but since I wasn’t here for Thanksgiving this year, I decided to make it for Christmas. The bread is diced and waiting to be made tomorrow. Tonight I started on the Potato-Apple Gratin. It’ll be fully made except for heating/browning tomorrow in the oven.
It looks pretty good so far! I hope it is.
