Happy Monday All. I hope you had a great weekend. We celebrated Grandpa's 86th birthday. He is doing better and is now home with a little help for him and Grandma. Anyway, I have been really busy -- sometimes I think I am just busy to be busy!? Here is this week's plan, let's see if I can stick to it.
Monday: Pork Chops, Smashed potatoes, mixed veg.
Tuesday: Chicken Casserole (Prairie Woman), Salad with apple and blue
Wednesday: Salmon Patty Sandwiches, Pineapple Coleslaw
Thursday: Crock Pot Meatloaf, Veg
Friday: Stromboli, Salad Italian style
My fish tacos are a fast fix and my kids love them. I just use frozen fish sticks, but, you could use any fish you would like. I have even made it with fresh Salmon.
I started by putting fish sticks in the oven, following the box instructions.
While they are in the oven, I soften corn tortillas in a dry skillet (I love cast iron for this).
I put them in a clean tea towel to keep them warm and pliable.
For the first topping, I put a bag of coleslaw in a bowl. I squeeze about a 1/2 of a fresh lime, chopped cilantro, a couple three green onions (white and green parts) and about 1 T. of olive oil and mix. Oh, and a little salt and pepper to taste.
The second topping is a mango cut into cubes, 1/2 of a red onion, fresh cilantro, lime and a little olive oil. Mix and add a little salt to bring out the sweet in the mango.
The third is a quick topping or side dish. Drain and rinse a can of black beans. In a bowl, add the beans, green onion, a drained can of white shoe peg corn, you could add a tomato, although, my kids are not big fans of tomatoes so I don't add them in, fresh cilantro, lime and olive oil. Mix with a little salt and pepper. It doesn't take much time to do all three sides, I am done before the fish is out of the oven.
When the fish is done, put a couple pieces on your tortilla,
Then the toppings you like. I like the coleslaw and mango on top,
Black bean salad on the side with a grape tomato.
This has no mayo, or cheese. I think it is pretty healthful and my kids will ask for it when I don't make it for a while
