Happy beautiful morning, all! Welcome to my weekly lifestyle post called Sunday Mornings at Home.
That pesky heat high has returned to south Texas, so I am determined to face it with optimism…and, of course, air conditioning!
Today, I have another recipe to share with you from one of our fabulous readers of the blog.
I hope more will participate and send your recipes and pictures to my email: email@example.com…with the subject line RECIPE SHARE.
It is so much fun to get these from you.
Let’s start today with a little affordable fashion inspiration….
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: CONSIGNMENT SHOPPING
I think most of you know that I really enjoy consignment and thrift shopping.
Today’s outfit features a DKNY top I paid $9.00 for a couple of years ago at a consignment store. It is a lovely summer top.
I also paid $2 for the bracelet at Goodwill San Antonio…I love the orange and gold touches in It and it compliments this top perfectly.
Consignment shopping is a fun way to get out of the heat and do some treasure hunting.
I already shared with you that one grandson likes to shop Goodwill with me.
Well, my oldest granddaughter and I go shopping at a children’s resale shop together…with a treat afterwards.
She is quiet the shopper and always wants to pick out something for her siblings. It is lots of fun.
BTW…she didn’t eat all of that frozen yogurt, but I let her pile it up with whatever she liked.
Has anyone had consignment success recently?
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: READER RECIPE SHARE
Marcia sent along this recipe and I just might make it today for Mr. B.
Bakes Parmesan Lemon Fish
A healthy recipe
Two fish fillets, about 6-8 oz. each (I use swai, but any white fish will work well)
A drizzle of olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tbls fresh lemon juice
2 tbls white wine (or water)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line a baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Rub both sides of fish fillets with a drizzle of olive oil and place in pan. Sprinkle liberally with lemon pepper, thyme, garlic powder and salt and pepper. Sprinkle fish evenly with half of the bread crumbs and the parmesan cheese.
Turn fish fillets over gently, and repeat the sprinkling of spices, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese on the other side. Lightly drizzle olive oil over fish.
Add the lemon juice and wine/water to the pan and cover with foil. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Set the oven to “Broil” — uncover the fish and broil for 2-3 minutes or until coating is brown and crispy (watch carefully). Remove fish from oven and serve, garnishing with lemon slices.
Serve with rice and a tossed salad for a healthy and delicious meal.
Note From Marcia: You can vary the spices in this recipe to your liking. Dill is a nice addition. Also, Italian seasoning, basil and oregano are very good.
Sounds delicious…what would you serve with this?
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: CHRISTMAS IN JULY
I understand that some of you are annoyed by brands that promote CHRISTMAS IN JULY SPECIALS.
However, since I do love the season so much, and because this year, I very likely may have a boot on my foot during the holidays, I so take advantage of a few specials.
One of my traditions is to give personalized family Christmas ornaments at the end of the Thanksgiving meal…my way of officially kicking off Christmas.
I have done this ever since grandchildren hit the scene…so I guess for 10 years.
The brand I order these from is called Personal Creations and they run July specials every year. My grandchildren love having these to decorate their tree and look forward to them.
The order has already been placed for 2023…and I was excited to add in a new family member…the recent bride!
