fish tacos

forget the post a day....

tonight i made fish tacos.  i used tilapia and this recipe.  they were good.  i meant to take pictures.
served with fruit salad and followed up with raspberry sorbet and coconut cookies.

for an appetizer, i threw together a corn salsa-ish kinda thing that we ate with tortilla chips.

1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
about 1/4 cup red onion chopped
one diced ripe avocado
cilantro chopped
juice from one lime
a little salt

will make it all again!

better blog form to come later.

Maybe I'll shoot for posting every other day.

Speaking of fish

We're trying to eat a little bit more fish these days.  It isn't hard for us to eat a little bit more because we pretty much each none at home.  Well, there is the occasional can of tuna for salad but I think it may have been over a year since I've even done that...  Tonight - mission accomplished.  Sort of.  I've been rather reluctant.  Not because I don't like fish - which is true and probably lends itself to a lack of motivation - but because of the great price paired with great risk of failure.  Give me chicken, pork, or beef, and I feel fairly confident that I can make it edible, dare say, fairly tasty.  But fish.  Not so much.  Do I spend a lot on "good" fish and risk messing it up or do I buy "cheap" fish to test out my skills and not know if it isn't quite as tasty because it isn't quite as "good?"  hmmm.  today I gave up.  and gave in.  and bought that $5.99 box of salmon patties.  9-11 minutes in the oven + a little sour cream and lemon juice + mixed greens + a whole wheat bun + a little freshly ground pepper = not bad.

May 2 - blog post fail

so much for posting every day this month!

I'm hoping to blog every day this month.

My 2 year old seems to have more words to say today than I do...

1 to 30...

we're almost there...but not quite finished.

today I did accomplish a handful of things:

wrote a letter to my future self (as suggested by Terry DeBarger)
the coffee is poisoned (get it?!)

wrote a letter to the president (one we thought of earlier and was also suggested by beth jamison).  i invited him to come over for dinner the next time he is in the bay area.
join us for dinner!

ate a new vegetable (as suggested by jenifer johnson)
dandelion greens and parsnips
why, yes, that does look like a giant weed!
once was probably enough.  might eat parsnips again though.

AND!  i finally registered to start taking counseling classes!  this is something I've talked about for years...
back to class!

in the next few days i'll do a review of the process...  i'm hoping to continue on in someway in the coming year. 

does anyone read these posts?

ONLY ONE DAY LEFT!  9 more things to go?!?  (I didn't count the several random first time things like flying into OAK...with those, I'd be closer to 30)

Here are a couple of pictures from yesterday.  What should I attempt to accomplish on Labor Day, my last day in my 20s?  I've got a few ideas but could use some suggestions.

Windy and Cold! 
B Star Bar - Yum!

3 to 30...
a bridge.

today i attended my first real yoga class.  you will be pleased to know that i put aside my souls and have restored my energy in myself....ah....not really.  i did enjoy the stretching!

we also headed into the city to traverse the Golden Gate Bridge.  We ended up only walking over half of it - it was cold and wind.y  Actually, felt quite nice...but we had a dinner reservations.  yummmm.  the kozdons (see motorcycle ride), my cousin connor, and the three of us made the trek.  more pictures to come (we got there without a battery in our camera!)

only 2 more days - and a lot to do!
