Busiest Moms Clutter Challenge Day 4
I was pondering what area in the kitchen to clutter bust next while I was steaming my curried tilapia for lunch in the microwave yesterday. Its an easy recipe that is super low calorie by the way and not so bad on the palate. I will post it at the end of this clutter challenge.
At any rate, the timer went ding and I pulled out my steamy lunch and looked at it deciding that the curry flavor would go nicely with some Tzatziki (greek yogurt with cucumber)
that I had purchased at the local market. Yum! That is pretty much what I was thinking. I scooped out my one tablespoon calorie crunching dollop and slapped it right on that curry rubbed tilapia. Then I smell it. You know that odd smell of spoiled milk and ripened cheese. Then I tasted the the Tzatziki while I was glancing at the container for the dreaded expiration date. Bitter acidic taste in any milk product, not so good.
I muttered to myself, Wow, 6 days over ripe, I hope that little taste will not haunt me into a small trip to the infirmary later tonight.
So today our Clutter Challenge is to fling out all the old mess, outdated milk, cheese and wilted lettuce. The soy sauce bottle that is oddly sitting empty next to the just a smidge left strawberry preserves toss it. The biggest and most important rule of food is when in doubt throw it out.
I am fine by the way and I did re-make the Curried Tilapia minus the little upset tummy threat expired Tzatziki sauce.
All is well that ends well.
Set your timer and toss out that old mess. Make room for a family trip to the local farmer’s market and if you happen to go to the grocery store and they are running the 2 for 1 special on Tzatziki please check the dates.
1 frozen tilapia filet
1 handful of organic spinach. clean please
1 small to medium tomato sliced in half.
3 slices from a medium sized onion.
1 sprits or two of olive oil spray
1 teaspoon bbq rub
1 teaspoon curry powder of your choice. ( I like mine super hot)
salt and pepper to taste.
1 glass container or other microwave safe dish that can be covered with a paper towel and is deep enough to avoid splatters.
Spray or rub the microwave safe dish with olive oil, just a tiny bit please. Then layer the onions, then tomatoes, then the spinach. Rub the tilapie with the bbq rub and the curry powder and then lay the filet on top. Cover with a paper towel and microwave on high for around 7.5 minutes or until the fish is nice and flaky. Salt and pepper to taste. You can add a bit of plain greek yogurt on the side or sour cream. Or you know what! lol
