Moving Day

We didn’t move but its time to get some more storage.  My Honey would like his shop back so instead of moving my stuff to a storage unit, we moved the storage unit here.  MIL had a truck van that they had for storage but they weren’t using so we moved it over here.  Now it just needs shelves and I can move in.

IMG_1666Took the sides off the trailer and moved it ourselves.  Saved a bunch on a roll back from the wrecker service.

IMG_1668Dinner was wonderful tonite.  We had blackened talapia and black bean salad.  Wow…its a keeper.

Blackened Talapia

The rub:

  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt, or to taste

Combine and rub on talapia.   Fry fish in oil in really hot pan for about 3 minutes a side, sprinkle with lemon juice and enjoy.  Wow…it is yummy.

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 3 ears of corn, cooked and kernels removed
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1 small diced yellow pepper
  • 3/4 cup picante sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 minced garlic clove

Combine all and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

My Honey decided that chocolate cheese cake would top the meal off perfectly.  He had a piece, I didn’t.  More on that tomorrow.
