Today’s Menu: Baked Garlic Herbed Tilapia w/ Mac and Cheese



I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day off. After Breakfast I went to Meijer and had to stop by Kroger for a couple of items. For the day outside its 84 degrees and humid with rain on and off. After Lunch went to spend the afternoon with Dad. He should be coming home within the next day or so. I’m not sure if it will work out or not but Mom wanted to see if he could make it here or not. Just hoping for the best! Back home for Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Garlic Herbed Tilapia w/ Mac and Cheese.



While at Kroger earlier I picked up a 2 Fillet Package of Tilapia that had already been Seasoned with Garlic and Herbs. To prepare them I’m baking them. I preheated the oven 350 degrees. I took a small Baking Sheet and lined it with Foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. I sprayed both sides of the Tilapia with the Pam and layed them on the Baking Sheet. The Pam helps brown most meats when baking them. When the oven was ready I baked the Tilapia. I baked them for about 25 minutes, until they started to flaky.



I’m a Fish and Seafood lover and I love this Tilapia! Nicely Seasoned and Meaty. Tilapia can be prepared so many different ways and it cooks up so easily. And as I said it’s a very Meaty Fish.






For my Mac and Cheese I’m using Bob Evan’s Single Serving Cup Macaroni and Cheese. They come in a 2 pack microwavable bowl package. To prepare it; Cut a small slit in film to vent. Microwave on high power for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and stir. Continue cooking for an additional 30 to 40 seconds. Let cool for 2 minutes and serve! My type of side. An excellent Pasta with plenty of Cheese, the bowl is plenty for 1 person. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.





Tilapia is the common name for nearly a hundred species of cichlid fish from the tilapiine cichlid tribe. Tilapia are mainly freshwater fish inhabiting shallow streams, ponds, rivers and lakes and less commonly found living in brackish water. Wikipedia

From the EatingWell website its – A Full Harvest: Stuffed Vegetable Recipes for Fall. Delicious and Healthy recipes like; Roasted Stuffed Pumpkin with Spiced Pumpkin Seeds, Stuffed Eggplant, and Polenta-Stuffed Kabocha Squash. Find these and more all at the EatingWell website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!



A Full Harvest: Stuffed Vegetable Recipes for Fall
To celebrate Autumn, turn fall’s best vegetables into cornucopias of plenty. Try stuffing luscious roasted eggplant with curried pork and shrimp. Tuck briny oysters, nutty Parmesan and fresh herbs between tender artichoke leaves. Fall vegetables take center stage in these delicious stuffed vegetable recipes.


Roasted Stuffed Pumpkin with Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
This roast pumpkin with a mushroom-and-bread stuffing is a beautiful vegetarian entree for the holidays. Use a small pumpkin if you can find one, but a winter squash like kabocha or buttercup also works. For a special garnish, save the seeds from the pumpkin, toss them with spices and roast them. If you use a squash, opt for store-bought pepitas; the squash seeds are too woody to eat….


Stuffed Eggplant
In this Italian stuffed eggplant recipe, fresh breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and parsley make a simple, yet delicious filling for an “inside-out” eggplant Parmesan. Serve these stuffed eggplants as a light dinner along with a big salad…….


Polenta-Stuffed Kabocha Squash
The cheesy polenta filling in this healthy stuffed squash recipe makes a great alternative to mashed potatoes, as well as a hearty vegetarian entree. If you can’t find kobocha squash, try using a buttercup squash or pie pumpkin–or skip serving it in the hollowed-out vegetable altogether and use 2 cups of your favorite pureed winter squash in Step 5………
