Bon Appetit !

So....we all know that my cooking skills are a little less than....well.....we'll just say they aren't your average culinary masterpiece. Some of my most memorable cooking experiences include: crunchy noodles in pasta salad, and burning rice crispy treats. Yes, I said it. I BURNT rice crispy treats. Don't ask how that happened. I tend to blame the A.D.D. It's not ALWAYs inedible though. I can bake pretty well, I'm great with a crock pot(but who isn't right?), and I can whip up some pretty tasty meals every now and then. Let's face it though, after a while the same meals get old. So this month I have decided that I'm finally going to learn how to cook some new things. I found a month-long meal plan that I'm going to try to follow. It has tons of things that I've never cooked before...so I'll be able to learn all kinds of fun stuff. Kenny will be my taste tester.(He can't wait...haha)
Today was day 1. The meal was Tilapia with peppers and olives. The whole fish thing worried me a little, because I never cook fish. Love seafood. Just can't cook it. Go figure that day 1 was Tilapia. I didn't even know if I liked tilapia...much less know how to cook it. But that's why I'm doing this right? So I cooked it, and believe it or not, it actually turned out to be pretty tasty. I've even included a picture for you. The first is the picture from the recipe of how it's supposed to look. The second is the picture I took of the finished product.

Pretty good if I do say so myself :) I was just proud that I didn't ruin it. It even got the thumbs up from Kenny.....so I guess this one will be added to the recipe book. Bon Appetit!
