Chicken and Red Pepper on Ciabatta

7:09 PM

Hi, my name is Divian and I am a sandwichaholic.  I love, love, love making sandwiches.  Since I homeschool my 9 year old son, sandwiches are the quickest and easiest things to make.  Since he is also taking a medication that causes him to lose weight, I try to make as hearty a lunch as possible.

This is heaven.  Multigrain ciabatta bread from the local grocery, roasted chicken breasts (sliced) fresh spinach, turkey bacon, sliced roasted red peppers and a chipotle red pepper spread.

I made the spread by combining 1 can of chipotle peppers with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons italian seasoning,2 sundried tomatoes,  a dash of sea salt, and half of a roasted red pepper in a blender. 

I served with fresh berries and plain potato chips.  My son and I enjoyed it. Yes!

Easy Homemade Fish Sticks

8:44 PM

I admit, I was one of those moms who bought the huge $7 bag of a gazillion fish sticks for my kids.
It made for a super quick dinner. Today, I decided, nope, no more bagged minced fish meat sticks for my kids....we need better! 

These are so easy.  You need...

Fish (I used tilapia)
Seasoning (I used Creole Seasoning, added to the cornmeal)

I found it easier to slice the fish if it was slightly frozen. It made the cuts smoother and easier.  Slice the fish into strips, you can cut off the ends for straight blunt edges.

Dip the sticks into cornmeal, then water, then into breadcrumbs. I press down when  coating in the breadcrumbs to make sure it sticks.  

Then fry in vegetable oil until brown.

Seriously, you will love these! My kids said they do not want bagged fish sticks again!
